"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.

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. Meg's family are also around more in this book which I found interesting, her brother and father seem to now be far more supportive of her and I think this only gives her more confidence to be even more of her own person and make her own decisions.
Initially I wasn't sure about the increase of magic in this novel, I didn't think I was going to like it, but when everything ties together at the end of the book, you realise that the magic is a key ingredient into the events of this novel and the development of the characters within. Another great read and definitely something to recommend, the only bad part? We have to wait until next summer for the next book!
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!
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
