Book #113: The Crescent City: The Bennett Witch Chronicles by Lexi Ostrow

Bonnie Bennett has finally finished her trip around the world to “find herself”, only to realize that where she’s always belonged is Mystic Falls – and returning home was as eventful as ever. Immediately thrown into the search for Caroline’s girls, the pair find themselves in the Crescent City with none other than the Mikaelsons.

While there a witch offers her everything she’s ever wanted – Enzo. All Bonnie has to do is a small bit of magic that she’s promised won’t unleash hell, sirens or anything else her past self has already extinguished. There is a cost, but the witch won’t share until Bonnie agrees to help the Big Easy with its current debacle.

Nothing is ever without a cost, but life with Enzo is more than Bonnie can walk away from. Bonnie faces her hardest decision yet, and her choice could be New Orleans’ undoing.


With her magic restored, her best friends living happily ever after together as humans, and the love of her life waiting patiently for her on the other side, Bonnie Bennett is not going to just sit around and let her life pass her by. She’s off to see the world! Join Bonnie as she journeys around the globe, encountering supernaturals in the most unexpected of places.

The Bennett Witch Chronicles is a collaborative series within The Vampire Diaries Kindle Worlds. Go to for more information.

I received a copy of this novella for an honest review. Everything that follows is my honest opinion. I was not compensated for this.

I wasn’t a huge Vampire Diaries fan until closer to the second season, but I always loved the Caroline/Bonnie/Elena trio. They are completely devoted to their friendship and whatever decisions they make, no matter how bad they could be, they forgive each other in the end.

I start this review with that because this story starts with the strong friendship of Caroline and Bonnie. It is because of that strong friendship that Bonnie finds herself back in Mystic Falls and later in New Orleans.

The story is short and trying not to spoil it is difficult, but from reading it, Bonnie has definitely learned from her past. She isn’t thinking of the end result. Not that she did that a lot in the show, but they were young in comparison to the Bonnie of the story. They did a lot of poor decisions for the “greater good” and often times were manipulated.

I definitely want to read the other Bennett Witch Chronicles and if Ostrow plans on writing more Kindle Worlds for Vampire Diaries, I plan on going for that as well.
