Always a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough Early Review.

Always a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough Early Review
By Moirae the fates book reviews.

This is the sequel to Once a Witch. Always a Witch, picks up right where Once a Witch left off. In this book, we get all the answers that we wanted in book one. I must say, that I liked this book a lot more then the first. I found this one to be much faster paced and the book was a bit darker then the first.
Tam has to find a way to fix the problem that the Greene family was left with in book one. The Knight family remains their rivals in the story. What I really liked was how much Tam grows as a person and how her character develops into an even more independent and strong woman. Which is really important to have a strong female lead in a YA book.
Gabriel and Tams relationship blooms even more in this installment then it did in the first. We learned in book one that Traveling was not allowed, but we didn’t fully understand why. In Always a witch we learn more about Traveling and the repercussions that is can have.  We also get to see Tam grow more into her Talent and she learns how to use it and the full effect it can have.
The character development as a whole carried on more in this book I think then it did in the first one. Which is understandable. I found the dialog in this one witty. I really enjoyed it and it felt real. It didn’t feel like the author was grasping at straws which is great. I really enjoyed this book!

Overall rating:
**** 4 out of 5 stars highly recommended.

Cover art:

I really liked the cover art to this one. The dress is amazing and the use of blue is absolutely beautiful.
