Review: A TALE OF 3 WITCHES by Christiana Miller and Barbra Annino

As a huge fan of the TV show, Charmed, it was no big shock to why I wanted to read this book.

Just like the title suggests, this is a story of 3 witches.

Witch #1: Mara, who has a daughter with a mortal that worries that his baby may be the anti-Christ. Mara can communicate to ghosts, like her Aunt Tillie, the former super witch.

Witch #2: Stacy is a little more reluctant to her witch destiny. According to her grandma, she is “The Seeker.” Unlike Mara, she gets feelings and images of the dead.

Witch #3: Gus, a male witch, who relishes the fun gifts of a warlock.

One day, Tillie receives a letter asking for her help, but since she is dead, she sends Mara in her place. As a tarot reader, Mara sees “chaos and disaster” on this pending trip. Instantly, there is a magical connection between Mara and Stacy. But then the danger comes when a mysterious stranger checks into the B&B. What was Samhain? The Devil? And why was this being stealing souls?

Together, all 3 witches realize that they must banish this evil before it’s too late.

Like Charmed, this book had drama and funny quips, but it was a little less action-packed. I would’ve appreciated it more if we had been more involved in the personal lives of each witch (we hardly heard anything from Gus – it was mostly from the POV of either Mara or Stacy).

Still, it was a nice, quick novel, and it inspires me to continue reading the series.

-Somebody tell Aunt Tillie is dead

-The Thief who Stole Midnight

-Every Witch Way but Wicked

-Opal Fire

My rating: 4 stars
