I received a free copy to provide a review
I found the style quite different from her previous stories, however enjoyed the first book in this new series
Alma has a few mysteries which I am sure will be solved over upcoming books like why is her power different from other witches and who was her mother? I liked the characters and found the cozy to be entertaining. It was light on romance, however had plenty of mystery for a cozy.
Her relationship with her father was amusing and I look forward to ...more
What I liked:
The writing style
Part of a series: Sonoma Witches
I look forward to reading the next book in this series.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC.
Witch Alma Bellrose hears fae cries for help and finds the body of her ex Tristan, a Protector. Is it a coincidence that the torc, a powerful amulet, goes missing on the same night? And now the Protectorate, an international body of witches that protect fae and humans from supernatural dangers, have their eye on Alma thanks to her father Malcolm, a notorious thief, being the prime suspect in the theft. Alma tries to find answers but will this make her the next target of whoever killed Tristan?
Wow wow wow, this book was a great fun read! Magic isn't really my genre but I'll read almost anything if it's well written, and this was definitely that.
This book (series!) introduces us to a witch called Alma and her magical world. As a reader with zero visual imagination (aphantasia) I deeply appreciate Galway's extremely efficient world-building: I get the idea of what the characters and settings are supposed to be like without a lot of boring (to me) descriptions and setups; we just learn ...more
Really loved this new series!
I love the rom com style and Gretchen's books, and although this is so different from that I still loved it!
A fantastic world, breath-baiting and adventurous, good and unexpected. I love Alma's character and everything she stands for, and I can't wait to see what comes next.
Very well done!
I read this on the recommendation of a friend, I loved it! Can't wait for more books in this series!
It’s a pretty sure sign of how much I loved a book when I get to the end of the book and have no idea how I’m going to explain what I just experienced. I’ve read the paranormal romances the author has published under an alter ego, so I knew I should be expecting something special with a paranormal mystery. Alma’s an amazing leading character. She’s fierce and independent, and just like the rest of us mere mortals she’s sometimes not sure if she can accomplish everything that’s been asked of her. ...more
