The book, which is the first in the series, centers around Anna who, according to a story she was told by her uncle, was abandoned with a pack of bear cubs in the Russian wild. Anna ends up in an orphanage and while growing up, she comes to discover that she is not at all like the other girls, as she has certain special abilities that she doesn't tell anyone about.
The years go by and she wonders about her powers until one day, as a teenager, she receives a letter from her mother and discovers several secrets about her past. At the same time, she discovers a plot to harm her and she sets out to stop the people that are after her. Along the way, she will find adventure waiting at every turn as she becomes familiar with her powers and unravels the mysteries in her life.
If you liked the Harry Potter books, you will surely love the blend of the supernatural and ancient folklore that you will find in Diary of Anna.
A delightful change of reading genre for me with this brilliant story about thirteen year old Anna Sophia who was originally from Russia but is currently attending a private school whilst living in an orphanage run by nuns. Her thirteenth birthday brings surprise presents from her Mum, no news from her Uncle and amazing powers. She hadn’t known she was a witch, but as she starts to come into her powers she also discovers a terrible scheme which threatens her, her friends and other children. Can she learn to use her new talents for good, helping to save others or will evil take over her heart and turn her into a black magic user? Who can she trust? Who will help her?
This is a great story blending many aspects of ancient folklore intertwined with some ethical and moral dimensions. It is a dark story involving deception, the kidnapping and physical abuse of children (hitting and imprisoning), magic and, of course, witchcraft. It has a few illustrations interspersed through the story to help maintain the interest of less mature readers. It is an action packed, fast paced adventure where Anna has faces dilemmas, learns that people can be like books - you shouldn’t judge them by their cover and that this is just the start of her learning to use her powers wisely! She also consolidates her early lessons, that it is always best to have good intentions and to be kind to others.
This is an intriguing new series, with Anna Sophia and Jean-Sébastien as especially great characters helping the story appeal to both genders. It is well written, encouraging the reader to look on the children as friends and highly engaging. I can think of some children in my previous classes who would have loved to read this series, so have no hesitation in highly recommending it - and wishing to read more of it in future!
Thanks to the author and publisher for gifting me an ARC of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
This one was full of action, as well as funny,sad,happy, and hard to put down till the finish.
I will buy Wandering Witch! 😼🌌🌌🌌 Magic🌌👏
Some local people are an apparently benevolent and wealthy family, but from a balloon flight, Anna sees a dark shadow all around their home. Can this be an omen? Well yes it can, as the reader quickly gathers. There are references to old Central European fairytales but nothing too esoteric as the story is full of action. Anna gets help from a boy at school so boys can read it too, but I think the adventure will suit young teen or preteen girls.
