ALWAYS A WITCH
Paranormal Young Adult
Releases August 1st, 2011
The adventures of Tam and Gabriel continue with more time travel, Talents, spy work, and of course, the evil Knights.
Since the gripping conclusion of Once A Witch, Tamsin Greene has been haunted by her grandmother's prophecy that she will soon be forced to make a crucial decision—one so terrible that it could harm her family forever. When she discovers that her enemy, Alistair Knight, went back in time to Victorian-era New York in order to destroy her family, Tamsin is forced to follow him into the past. Stranded all alone in the nineteenth century, Tamsin soon finds herself disguised as a lady's maid in the terrifying mansion of the evil Knight family, avoiding the watchful eye of the vicious matron, La Spider, and fending off the advances of Liam Knight. As time runs out, both families square off in a thrilling display of magic. And to her horror, Tamsin finally understands the nature of her fateful choice.
I absolutely adored Once A Witch, Tamsin was a strong, snarky protagonist, the story moved forward quickly, and I was left wanting more without being frustrated by a cliffhanger ending. Though August is very far away, this one is on NetGalley at the moment, so I'm looking forward to requesting it sometime soon!
I'm also a huge fan of this cover, it's both ominous and romantic, and reminds me a little bit of the cover for Fallen thanks to her flowing dress and the darker color scheme. I'm hoping the story lives up to the beautiful imagery!
