Tbh I enjoyed book 1 I thought book 2 was interesting then this book I was like why did I even bother 2 read this?

Feb 03, Gemma Mcvitie-birch rated it liked it. This book was ok not somethin i would read again i had high expectations because i really enjoyed the first 2 books.
Jul 13, Onorode Adjarho rated it liked it. This to wltch was the worst book of the series because it had the worst ending which made me want to dash the book at a wall a million times. However, the beginning and middle were quite good.
Jul 19, Becki rated it liked it. Warburton does a brilliant job at building the tension in this book, and slowly revealing what is really going on as well as the truth about Anna and her mother. As such, there are a LOT of revelations that occur in qarburton book wargurton all of them took me by surprise.
As I mentioned earlier, I found Anna at her least likable in this book. The other was that I found Anna to be a very selfish character at times. If you are a fan of the paranormal romance genre, then you should give this series a try. Originally posted on TheFlutterbyRoom. Dec 23, Siobhan rated it liked it.
The Winter Trilogy: A Witch Alone: Book 3 by Ruth Warburton – Books – Hachette Australia
It follows all the other trilogies in this genre. We know how things are going to be played out. The bad guy is obvious. The love story is going to end in a particular way. It was a nice short trilogy to read. It passed the time. It was simple, allowing me to work through them whilst I was busy. I think my major problem is that I have read far too many books like this before.
If you enjoyed the first two books, though, reading this one is a must. May 19, 5secondstomadness rated it it was ok. So I have review the last two book might as well review this one. This book suffered the same problem the first two books had which is a lot of filler and not really good develop on the characters, but the worse thing this book gain was the cliches, my god were there so many.
My overall view on the book was that it was OK but not the best book. There will be a lot of negatives in this review so I will start with a positive and that is the general plot.
Th So I have review the last two book might as well review this one. The plot was not to bad, it was a lot more epic then the first two and took more risk then before. The whole going to Russia exploring her past and trying to find out about her mother was very entertaining and enjoyable. However, as the title painfully suggest it is going to be about Anna’s reaction to Seth breaking up with her and that what this story was cram with.
Anna does not take rejection well as she was becoming a bit of a creep about it as she keep stalking her through her magic water blow thing and saw him having sex with another women, but i’m sorry she was asking for it. As I mention there is a lot of clinches in this book, I mean I could do a checklist of them all as the most overused clinches ever. First off the whole chosen one. Yes apparently Anna is this prophetise witch that is the mistress of death, but oh no it not that she can kill people but bring them back to life.
When I read this I was on the bus and I slammed my head on the window when I read this part, I got a very caution look from the first year behind me.
What I hate most about this is that Anna has not been using magic, actually has not known about magic until a year or two ago.
How can she be this most powerful witch!?! Also this whole chosen one prophesy thing, I hate as it is an easy shortcut to make the main look important and special when they are not, I would be more routed in the character if I know that they did the task out of their own merit rather then them needing to be told they have to do it because they are the only one. And no offence to Anna but she is not that strongest of a character to hold the plot. The second clinch links to the first and that is Anna’s love for Seth and the stupid decision she makes for him.
A Witch Alone
If any of you want to read this book don’t read sarburton paragraph. Near the end Anna goes to Russia with the gang including Seth and has her magic extracted Wizards vs aliens ripoff but is still alive, unlike the last witch, RIP to her. To cut a bad story short Seth dies and Anna is heart broken and decided the only way to save him is by pouring her jar of magic over him. Sounds idiotic and it is, even Abe and Emma-line makes a good point to wait and see if they can put her magic back in her then try to bring him back as she is apparent the mistress of death.
As you may of guess she does not listen and does it anyway and he comes back to life. My main problem with this is that throughout this book the shopkeeper, that friendly witch, Marcus’ dad and oh HER MUM were all dead and I think there is more and she could of brought them back to life and also considerable other but oh no she decided to keep those people dead for love, kill me please!
I don’t find it sweet of love I find it selfish and a waste if you ask me. There is so much more cliches that can be it written into the YA Manuel of writing including Anna practically thrown away her own life for Seth as she decided to not take her A-leaves in order to travel with Seth to Russia and break her poor father’s heart.
Also she decided to give up her change of being a good witch and living out her potential for the life with Seth on his boat. There is probably more but I can’t remember. One thing I have to add is that shock me to my core was the gore at the end. I remember reading this on my way to mass with my mum and dad in the front and it was the scene were Abe, Anna and Emma-line are being toured by Marcus, I cant remember fully it but this is me parapharisng “all I saw was Marcus hand reaching into Abe’s belly and pushed further and further in until his whole hand was lost.
Then he began to pull his hand out and brought with him pink tubes that were long and slippery. I then relies it was Abe’s intestate that was now hanging out of him.
But it got worse! As we were making our way back from mass not even out of the gates it said ” Emma-line reached for a syringe and through it at Marcus that made him howl in pain when i got a good look the needle waburton stuck in his eye. To be honest I’m glad I have got the series finished but I feel so alpne for Abe, poor dear, he was so close but still was just a product of the love triangle.
Jul 29, Dani C rated it really liked it Shelves: I have more on my blog, Pen to Paper. Just when I thought the Winter trilogy could not possibly get any more exciting, I read the final instalment The beginning of the novel drops us straight back in where A Witch in Love left off. Anna is with her Grandmother, Elizabeth, who just happens to be one of the five chairs of the Ealdwitan, the British witches’ equivalent of parliament.
Since Seth in the second book, Anna has been working on her w Like this review? Since Seth in the second book, Anna has been working on her witchcraft, learning to control her powers properly, and then how to put them to good use.
She’s also working on the riddle of her mother’s disappearance, trying to find out why her mother wanted her hidden, and what is so special about her that other witches seem to be willing to do anything to find her.
I loved the mystery that was spread throughout the novel, and of course, the discoveries that these brought along with them.
When I read the first book in this trilogy, I had not expected anything like this to be happening in the final book, so it was a really pleasant surprise to be so drawn in. I enjoyed this book even more than book two, because the mysteries went even deeper than before, but there was at least some kind of resolution to the puzzles that Anna faced, and they were not at all what I was expecting. I also loved the amount of action in this final instalment.
There was a fair amount in A Witch in Love, but this book just blew my mind with how fast-paced and exciting it was, especially towards the end with the final struggle that Anna and her friends had to face. Even though the book is not particularly short topping pagesI read two thirds of it in one sitting, because it was so gripping that I literally did not want to put it down. If I did, even for a moment, I was thinking about what had just happened and what Anna might do next!
While I was reading it, the story utterly consumed me. Then of course, we have the romantic element to the story. If you’ve read the second book, A Witch in Love, then you may be surprised when I say that I really liked the romantic side of this book.
