This book can get a little dark and even gory in places, so I would probably recommend it to those aged above 12. I'm looking forward to reading the sequels!
Although mostly a tale of romance, the historical and witchcraft aspects of the book were fascinating. I really felt how dangerous it was for Meg to be a witch in the 1500's and just how one wrong move in front of the wrong person would bring everything tumbling down. Meg was a great character, strong, willful, independent and fiercely loyal. Like most girls her age though she was also capable of making mistakes and in those times the penalties were much more severe.
The biggest part of the story though, is the romance between Meg & Alejandro, between a witch and a soon-to-be Spanish Catholic priest. You don't get a much more risky romance than that! I liked how it was Alejandro that was more open to the idea of being with Meg, that Meg was so obviously falling in love with him but couldn't/didn't want to see that, didn't want to have to give up everything she held dear. The tension and chemistry between the two was palpable, the sexual tension especially leapt off the page and I for one can't wait to find out what happens in Witchfall
Like all good witch tales, she comes under the suspicion of a witch hunter and it looks like it could all be over for meg. I have the admit,in found myself holding my breath during some of the scenes where she was being hounded or interrogated and there was seven a really low point where I had a little cry because of events going on in this novel!
Of course there is a love interest too, a saucy Spanish priest nonetheless, and even towards the ending of this novel, we never really find out whether meg succumbs to his Spanish seductions or not, I think this is wonderful twist to the story.
The thing that I really enjoyed about this tale is the historical accuracy. Tudors is a favourite period in history for me and so reading about Elizabeth and her relationship with her sister, and indeed the country, was excellent and definitely surpassed my expectations. I was lucky enough to receive the sequel to this fab historical YA fiction Witchfall and I can't wait to get on and get reading that-look out for the review soon. They are definitely something that should be added to your reading list!

On the other hand I found it a very "trashy" book.Read more
