    Average is generous.
    Upon realizing this book was a sequel--the title was my first clue--I promptly managed to get my hands on The Witch's Daughter and two other of Brackston's books and read them in preparation for my review. Though none were grand reads, TWD was intriguing and kept my interest so I looked forward to her sequel. I was disappointed and frustrated by The Return of the Witch. It was hard to believe the same writer created this book with its jerky starts and stops, unsympathetic characters, and lack of plotting and character development. My recommendation is that you give this one a pass unless you are absolutely devoted to her first. In reality this is a 2.5 at best.

    The Return of the Witch
    I was hesitant to read this book, since it was described as a sequel. It was very easy to follow along, since a lot of the past history was explained. The book moved along, although I found it to be a little simplistic to my liking. There were some convenient plot devices, with two men risking their lives to save the heroine. Fans of magic, and young teens will love this book.

    Just average
    I would not normally choose this type of book to read and found it a struggle at first to get an idea of what this story was about not having read the first book. What struck me most was how obviously coincidental the main events were - just when something major was about to happen there was always an eleventh hour save or event. This became almost predictable as the story went on and I found it somewhat humorous to anticipate that this would happen. Sorry - just average.

    The return of the witch
    I am a fan of historical fiction but I thought I would try something different. This book is fine if you enjoy witches and fantasy. I believe I will stay with my choice of genre.
