To Kill A Kettle Witch by Barb Hendee

Wednesday, June 15, 2016

National bestselling author Barb Hendee returns to the world of the Mist-Torn witches, as two sisters who can see the secrets of the past and the mysteries of the future begin a quest to save the family they never knew existed.…

Powerful prince Malcolm is facing ruin in the wake of a curse that has destroyed his harvest. He blames the band nomadic Móndyalítko who summer in the meadow below his castle—and he is determined to root out the people who caused the blight by any means necessary.

When Céline and Amelie Fawe, descended from the Móndyalítko, learn that their mother’s people are under suspicion of sabotage and treason, they set out to use their magical gifts to save their estranged relatives and learn about their own origins.

Now it’s up to the sisters—along with their motley escort, including a prince’s lieutenant, a shape-shifter, and an old woman with a murky past—to discover the source of the curse to restore life to the ravaged land and protect the innocent from unfair vengeance.

Goodreads Summary

As the fourth novel in the "Mist Torn Witches" series this novel picks right up where the third left off. This time the witches are out to lift a curse on a piece of land so that the harvest can become plentiful again, all while finding out more about their family origins. They are asked to help an estranged side of her deceased mother's family and they use their gifts as witches to see what they can do. Will they be stumped, or will they get to the bottom of who is causing the curse so that they can lift it and restore peace and prosperity?

This book is set in a great fantasy world created by the author. It is different enough so that you don't feel like you are reading some other book that has been written already and is exciting and new in its own ways. I love how you are left guessing who was creating the curse along with the witches through most of the story. It kept things exciting and gives you a reason to keep wanting to read from beginning to end. The countless list of quirky characters that the girls encounter in their adventures is also a reason to read this book in itself. Their family can be great. It can also be terrible. At the same time it is also terribly interesting and fun to dive into all the personalities that you will encounter. It's comparable to an extended family reunion. Barb Hendee definitely continues her magical charm in this story, and you don't want to miss it. So do whatever you can to get a copy of this book.
