A Coven of her own, Saskia Walker.

A Coven of Her Own (Witches of Raven's Landing Book 1) by [Saskia Walker]

I liked Sunny, incredibly trusting of her gran’s friend Celeste. I wasn’t entirely happy about Celeste’s actions, she was quite manipulative even though she though she was acting in everyones best interests.

The story is fun, light and at times very steamy. Cullen settled really well, accepted everything Sunny told him. I’d like to have known more about the coven wars than we had, about others in the coven, and the whole story was quite light on details.

Things happened, Sunny gets to grips with the supernatural world really quickly, and for me I would have liked a bit more info, a bit more depth on that. Much though I like hot sex I’d have happily sacrificed some of that for more solid background and day to day stuff. Likewise Sunny’s parents visit – and the “humour “ there – it wasn’t needed, the story was fine without, it didn’t add. IMO of course 😉

It feels like its all critisism here, and its not, there was much to enjoy. The journey back to the 1800s, the story behind Cullen, why Sunny was dreaming of him and of course the magic itself. I love magic in books, and really liked how these folk connected it to nature. Nature is important to me, and much of their magic resounded with me that way.

The big bad, Fox. I wanted more of how he changed, why, the connection between him and Celeste. I do like a “good” bad chantacter in a story, and Fox had the potential but I didn’t feel he quite lived up to it.
I’m hoping we meet these folk again in later stories, assuming they are all connected through characters that is – I haven’t looked yet. Hang on, I’ll be back…..Right, it doesn’t say, but it must be so, surely the coven is their common connection? The next books centre around it, so hopefully we will meet these characters and maybe learn more about them.
The ending was neat, but did feel a little rushed to me. I wasn’t quite ready for it.

Stars: Three, its a fun read, quite light but easy to go along with. Especially right now, mid covid and with a brain thats finding concentration hard…

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
