No one is perfect—not even a witch. Witches have amazing power at their fingertips to do unbelievable things. That magic can come in really handy sometimes too. They can make someone fall in love, poison an apple to enact a sleeping curse, to banish an enemy to an alternate reality, or just to conjure up some Nutella when there is none in the house.
But what happens when those spells go horribly awry?
SonofaWitch! contains six humorous contemporary fantasy stories of magic spells gone wrong by Laura VanArendonk Baugh, Sara Dobie Bauer, Lissa Marie Redmond, Frances Pauli, Mara Malins, and Adam Millard.
I really enjoyed this humorous look at witches. Everyone thinks they are perfect, but sometimes it isn’t easy being a witch. You have power at your fingertips that untrained, can go haywire, and boy does it. You know the saying “fold three” as in whatever you do will come back to you three times as strong. Now imagine being a young witch who just wants a boyfriend no matter the cost.
Try as they might, some witches are just not cut out for the power they have, but like some things you inherit from your parents, witchy powers don’t go away. You just have to learn how to deal with it.
Overall these authors really brought the humor out of the goofy side of being a witch. Not only that, but they make you look at the other non-glamourous side of having the witchy powers.
Go check it out, it will make you laugh, in fact at some points I had to put the book down because I was laughing so much.
