No one is perfect—not even a witch. Witches have amazing power at their fingertips to do unbelievable things. That magic can come in really handy sometimes too. They can make someone fall in love, poison an apple to enact a sleeping curse, banish an enemy to an alternate reality, or just conjure up some Nutella when there is none in the house.
But what happens when those spells go horribly awry?
SonofaWitch! contains six humorous contemporary fantasy stories of magic spells gone wrong by Laura VanArendonk Baugh, Sara Dobie Bauer, Lissa Marie Redmond, Frances Pauli, Mara Malins, and Adam Millard.
Tis the season for witches, magic, and fun so what better way to get into the holiday mood than with stories about the supernatural?
This anthology contains multiple stories that provide plots and characters with a more lighthearted look into the paranormal and humorous instances of when things don’t go as planned. Spells going awry has been a staple of humor in paranormal stories for quite some time; after all who doesn’t love it when the unexpected happens with a twist?
One of the wonderful tenets of Wicca is the way it brings people together and these stories help take that idea by weaving it within the characters actions. Witches, the coven, friends, all show in various ways they are there to help you learn, fix mistakes and remember you’re not alone. The authors all used this behavior within their characters which helped make them feel real and logically based.
The works combined within this volume mesh well together and the talent from the various authors shines through so you’ll want to seek out more by them on their own. That’s a great benefit to reading compilations like this; you get to whet your appetite with skills from various people so you get all kinds of different characters and plots.
The one thing you have to lookout for with anthologies is that because you do get different stories from different people whose writing has been shaped by their own experiences there may be some you like, some you don’t and some you’re just not sure about. I like these because you get a great comparison of one type of genre from different points of view which allows you to decide whose writing you think you are closer to – good group discussion!
