I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review.
Freya Snow applies for a job at a local coffee shop where she meets a black girl named Sarah. Sarah is deaf, and although she has never used BSL (British Sign Language) before, Freya’s magic allows her to use it fluently to speak to Sarah. They get along well, and then Freya finds out that Sarah is a Witch and a Healer who belongs to the same coven as Mel. Freya decides that she wants to join the coven, but the leader Rosaline refuses to accept her. However, when Sarah is cursed, it is up to Freya to find out how to cure her. In order to do this, Freya must speak to the other covens in the area to find out who cast the curse and get the cure from them.
This book might be my favorite book in the entire series so far. Freya has become so much more mature as the series progresses, and this really shined through in this story. Also, I loved the additions of Sarah and the focus on Mel, two characters who have their own physical challenges but are so unique and funny throughout the whole book. I hope to see more of them in the upcoming books.
I also enjoyed the fact that Freya had to interact with other magical beings in the world in this book. Usually, she was isolated and only fighting demons or speaking to a few magical people, but now she was speaking to whole covens of them. This definitely added to the world building of this series a lot.
I would recommend this series to anyone looking for a diverse fantasy story with a strong female heroine and exciting plotline to keep you on the edge of your seat!
Overall Rating: 6/5
