The Hidden Witch Reviews
Better than the first! A seamless story with great expression and emotion.
I love this series so much, I can't wait for more!
YES!!!! I was SO excited when I saw that there was a sequel to The Witch Boy!!!! This one was so good and started devleloping a better story with a new character that I really love. :-) If you liked The Witch Boy, you'll love this one, even though it seemed much shorter. Maybe it was because I devoured it in one sitting!

This is a worthy sequel to The Witch Boy. The Hidden Witch is a story of redemption and finding one's place in the world. The main characters this time around include a new girl at school, Ariel, as well as Charlie and Aster. Ariel has lived a hard life and is currently in the foster system. There's no information about how long she's been in care, but she doesn't seem to know much to anything about her parents, so it appears that she may have been raised by the state. Her current family doesn't ...more
While falling a little short of the first book, this is a pretty strong follow-up that establishes an appealing Scooby gang for ongoing adventures, which I will gladly read.
