Book Review: Witchling by Ari Harper


Synopsis from GoodReads:

Nera is a normal teenage girl living in Ireland, or so she thought until she discovers the family secret.. now her world is forever changed.

Descended from a long line of witches, she discovers she is the one who has to stop the curse that has taken the life of every girl before her.

And if that isn’t enough, she must learn to use magic from the man called Bones. He is the son of Mari, Queen of the Witches…and a god. It is Bones who has been entrusted to teach her the skills she needs to stay alive, which wouldn’t be so bad if he didn’t have an uncanny knack for pushing her buttons.

Can Nera succeed and resist the charms of the man who gets under her skin at every opportunity?

My Review:

This book was a decent enough and enjoyable read, it was a rather strange read though. The way it was written was very descriptive with a lot of information, which was very bulked together.

Some scenes seemed very rushed and the information and background was overly done and rushed too. I would of liked to see more of a storyline, but nevertheless I liked the story.

Nera is the definition of every teenage girl; wanting their own life, space and thinking they are the be all and end all. I loved the magic and God mythology aspect, but she really annoyed me that the majority of the book was her being told the same thing over and over again.

Despite in being a love story, there was barely anything on the male; Bones. It was like he was just there to help her and put up with her shit.

She seemed to have a closer relationship with her uncle and family. Though I do love the relationship she has with her little brother Roman and her Uncle Jasper.

I’m still debating on whether to read the second book now.

My Rating:

*** 3/5 stars
