"Full of cliffhanger moments, impossible escapes, dastardly villainy and even a few chase scenes, the story has enough suspense and unrestrained emotion to satisfy romance fans and enough witchy activity for paranormal fans." -Kirkus Reviews on Witchstruck --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
The second darkly magical and passionate tale of Meg Lytton, a young witch struggling to hide her craft amidst the danger, plots and betrayals of the Tudor court.See all Product description

The main focus is on Meg, a born witch, working for a young Elizabeth I before she became Queen. Encouraged by Elizabeth, Meg works a spell with far reaching results and has to put her abilities to the test to bring order back to the world around her. This wonderful storyline is spooky and gripping, providing constant action from page 1.
The unlikely relationship between Meg and Catholic novice Alejandro is beautifully portrayed and utterly convincing. And I was caught up in the complexities of their romance as they tried to keep their betrothal secret, and dealt with interference from all sides, including the Inquisition.
Witchfall is a great book and I got totally lost in it. I can’t wait to read book 3!
Overall this book is a lot darker than the first, there is more magic being brandished in this one, and at one point in the book, I genuinely feared for meg's life. I found that I couldn't read this book before bed because I would have nightmares, but that shows you just how good it was, that it got under my skin so much, just a warning that this one really isn't for the younger end of YA readers...
There was even more of a historical aspect to this novel with Henry VIII making an appearance as well as the spirit of Anne Boleyn, I found this historical aspect truly wonderful and very well researched. For me, it just added another level to this novel. We had the story of meg, the magic being worked, the possible love interest with Spanish priest Alejandro and the the historical aspect in terms of relationships between Elizabeth and each member of here family-truly inspired!
The love story intensifies in this novel too, Alejandro is still very much on the scene and making his presence known at court, and then when Elizabeth and her party move to Hatfield.Read more ›
It's sooo good to have Meg and Alejandro back in my life, I feel like their friends of mine.
Witchfall is so much more intense and dark. Blanche Parry is not one of my favourite characters but I felt for her so much after her time with the inquisition as for Meg my heart was in my mouth for her whole ordeal. I shant say anymore on these matters as I do not wish to ruin the story. But yet again Victoria has given us an absolute gem of a second story in this bewitching series.
It's funny most people dread reading the second or third in a series as they are not always as good as the first book. I completely loved Witchfall it was dark and empowering...I won't ruin it but there was a part in the second half of the book where I was sat thinking how can the series continue. And then bam another awesome twist that tells you what you needed to know. Meg and Alejandro's relationship is put to the test in the most intense way. I was not ready for or expecting the love triangle although when it happened, I was like aww now that makes complete sense. I was completely blown away again, this book had the perfect imagery and sometimes that was hard to imagine as it was sooo gruesome at times.
Victoria Lamb you have well and truly done it again!!!! LOVED IT!!! Want the next book NOW!!!! If you haven't already read Witchstruck then check out my review of that here
General Overview (no spoilers)
I thought this book was really good. It was (mostly) historically correct, full of magic, love, loyalty and betrayal. I love Meg, she is a great character, strong but admits her weaknesses, wants the best for her mistress even if it means losing her love. She wants what is best for everyone she loves.
4 out of 5 stars
Step by Step Overview (spoilers)
0% - This is the sequel to Witchstruck which I enjoyed greatly, only been a month or two since I read the first one and I already cannot remember some of the small threads of plot. I have only heard/seen good things about this book, cannot wait to get started. The title suggests something bad will happen to Meg but we will see.
10% - I love the setting of this series, would have hated to live then though. Probably wouldn't have been so bad if you were a commoner but all accounts make it seem terrible to be at court, so why does everyone want to be there? The writing style is nice and flows easily, the story has picked up straight where the first one left off.
20% - Is Mary going to give birth? I am pretty sure she does not in the little history I remember.
30% - Poor Blanche , never really liked her but she is loyal and no-one deserves that treatment. Now poor Meg, will she be able to wangle her way out of it? It's horrible how people can be so cruel to each other. It sickens me.
40% - Evil spirits - looks like things are getting interesting and dark - I like. I have really taken to Meg, she is a brilliant character and Alejandro sounds like the perfect guy.
50% - Now in the countryside where Lady Elizabeth grew up.Read more ›
