The Black Witch was a bit of a slow starter, but never dull by any means. It slowly sunk its claws into me and wouldn’t relent until I finished every book I could get my hands on in The Black Witch Chronicles.
Elloren could be hard to like and listen to sometimes, but I found her journey through the world and discovering beliefs and opinions for her herself to be a long, rocky, but ultimately real feeling one that allowed her to grow over time.
I was truly impressed with the world building in this book. I easily found myself totally enchanted with this land full of magic and mystery.
I do think that this story requires some amount of patience to really get into, but I found that after while I couldn’t put the book down and any story that makes me instantly purchase every other book in series is a pretty impressive one.
