Book Tour: The Blue Witch by Alane Adams

Before Sam Baron broke Odin’s curse on the witches to become the first son born to a witch and the hero of the Legends of Orkney series, his mother was a young witchling growing up in the Tarkana Witch Academy. In this first book of the prequel series, the Witches of Orkney, nine-year-old Abigail Tarkana is determined to grow up to be the greatest witch of all, even greater than her evil ancestor Catriona. Unfortunately, she is about to fail Spectacular Spells class because her witch magic hasn’t come in yet. Even worse, her nemesis, Endera, is making life miserable by trying to get her kicked out. 

When her new friend Hugo’s life is put in danger by a stampeding sneevil, a desperate Abigail manages to call up her magic―only to find out it’s unlike any other witchling’s at the Tarkana Witch Academy! As mysteries deepen around her magic and just who her true parents are, Abigail becomes trapped in a race against time to undo one of her spells before she is kicked out of the coven forever!

Rich in Norse mythology, The Blue Witch is the first of a fast-paced young reader series filled with magical spells, mysterious beasts, and witch-hungry spiders!

MY REVIEW
I received a copy of Blue Witch for an honest review. There was no compensation given for this review. Everything that I say is in my opinion and mine alone.
What drew me to request this book for review was the cover. I mean, look at that cover! It says excitement, magic, and dragons! And, really, it had two out of the three (possibly 3/3 except that what I thought was a dragon is actually called an Omera).
From the very beginning of the book, I was hooked to the story. The pacing is well done, the world is a fantasy world that is inspired and embraces Norse lore, and there is enough suspense that has me wanting to read more.
Blue Witch is actually the first book in a prequel series from the same author. The first series centers around Abigail’s son, Sam. You do not need to have read that series to understand this one. If anything, this book has me wondering what the other series is like.
All in all, I really liked this book and am definitely going to have Bug read this as well. The world is so interesting that there is no doubt that when a sequel comes out, I’ll be getting it.
Final Rating: 4/5
