"Ruth Warburton is going to take the YA market by storm. A Witch in Winter is a thoroughly enchanting read!" - Jade, at Ink Scratchers (Jade at Ink Scratchers)
"One of my most highly anticipated 2012 reads..." - Brodie of Eleusinian Mysteries (Brodie of Eleusinian Mysteries)
"It's a great read, steeped in witchcraft, with a steamy romance, feisty leads and a brooding coastal setting." (The Bookseller)
"Anna's reactions to the events were pretty much how I imagine I'd react, which made it easy to love her... The love story was so fantastically different, I loved the idea of it and it was so well executed... The ultimate battle was amazing, the enemy was one that I actually found quite scary, and the solution was neither easy nor lazy. It has everything you'd expect from a paranormal YA, but it avoids the cliches and predictability..." - Cait from The Cait Files (Cait from The Cait Files)
Although this is mid-way through a trilogy it works totally as a standalone read within a very satisfying sequence. (School Librarian)

Anna's constant internal guilt trip did start to grate after a while but Emmaline makes up for it. I might have to start an Emmaline fan-club. She is now my absolute favourite character. She's funny (the magic incontinence theory had me laughing for ages) and regularly provides Anna with a reality check.
Personally I liked the story in A Witch in Love better, without giving anything away it made the `magic is real' more believable. I also loved Ruth Warburton's imaginings of magical places in London.
A Witch in Love succeeded in continuing to surprise me both with the writing and the story of Anna's world.
We now have to wait until February 2013 to find out how this adventure ends...*
The action started early in the story and there was lots of it throughout, also the dark and eerie feeling that I got in the first book continued in this one which made it feel familiar to read. Again Anna faced danger and many emotional revelations, including trying to figure out her relationship with Seth.
I still felt unsure about Seth, I couldn't put my finger on what it was that bothered me about him but something happened near the end that helped me make up my mind about his character - I won't say whether it's good or bad though, you'll have to find that out for yourself!
A trip back to London uncovers something that worries Anna and is also the beginning of a significant change in her life where she finds out more about her mother and family.
Abe was a particular favourite again and as we find out a little bit more about him I think I can finally understand him better. I would definitely like to see him get together with Anna so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that something might happen in the next book.
There were a few unexpected moments, some of which took a nasty and scary turn that I just couldn't see Anna getting out of. All this means that I really can't wait for the next instalment A Witch Alone, there was a sneak peek of this in the back of the book and let me tell you, it was super exciting and raised my hopes that at least one of my predictions might come true. It really does hint at the final book being truly amazing!
This is a magical, eerie book that definitely has me under its spell.
This book is about Anna finding her power at last but still being wary of using it in case she hurts someone. Hardly surprising after what happened in the first book!
She has found out that her powers had been crippled until she came of age and also that a spell of silence had been put on her Father, again until she achieved the age of 18.
In this book, she finally meets her Grandmother and ends up at the HQ of the Ealdwitan in London.
She is still not convinced that Seth loves her for herself and is not 'still bewitched by her' and pushes him away once too often and he..........well, that would be a huge spoiler wouldn't it? Abe plays a largish part in this book too.
Like the first book, this is fluently written so you can get straight into the story without a lot of preamable and waffle. This is also just as hairy and scary as the last book as now a group calling themselves the Malleus Maleficarum are after her.
I was so taken with this book when I had finished it, I immediately bought the next in the series. A Witch Alone...........this is looking and reading well too.
This book lives up to the description and it does what it says on the tin. Anna finds it hard to believe that Seth loves her and refuses to use her powers. Of course that plan doesn't last long as her and Seth are attacked. Anna finds it hard to control her power and doesn't understand how she has so much of it at such a young age, wanting answers she starts looking at her mothers history and is left with more questions than answers. And on top of all that someone starts warning/haunting (I guess, I can't find the right word) Anna and that lands her in even more trouble that before.
This is a very good book with lots of twist in it and it leaves the reader wanting more. Ruth has done an amazing job continuing the series and I wasn't left disappointed. If you liked A Witch In Winter defo pick this up.
***A Witch in Love is book 2 in the sequence - don't read on if you've not read book 1 - you may find spoilers***
AWIL picks up 6 months after the showdown at the end of AWIW, it's been quiet since the fight and things have settled into a rhythm, Seth and Anna are still together and about to celebrate Christmas. Although Anna loves Seth she still wonders if her spell makes him love her, or if he really does. But she's burying those feelings and trying to keep moving on, but to do so she is fulfilling the promise she's made to herself, not to use magic AT ALL. This of course is not working and to quote Emmaline `she incontinent' - she holds it in so much her magic bursts out when she's not concentrating, resulting in girls hair catching fire, snow in restaurants and two would-be muggers being blasted and knocked out.
But it's not until a trip to London that things start to change, Anna starts to follow her questions about her mother and finds some surprising information that shatters everything. But along side this hunt for the truth, there are darker forces at work, strange graffiti starts appearing and the logo belongs to an ancient anti-witch organisation, and they know what Anna did to Seth and what else she's been up to, and they want to stop her.
The magic (no pun intended) from the first book is a little slower to appear here, it does arrive and with a bang, but really the book is ALL about the last quarter.Read more ›
