I really liked that “To Kill a Kettle Witch” involved two sisters that were two sides of a coin. They were both seers, one saw the past and the other saw the future. The book reminded me of the television series Charmed. The sister’s ancestors played a role in who they were. Family in general played a big part in the plot.
Even though this is book four in a series, I did not feel as though I needed to read the others. I actually felt as though this book could be the prequel because it had a lot of information on the sisters. Overall, “To Kill a Kettle Witch” was a fun read! I am giving this book a 3.5/5.
National bestselling author Barb Hendee returns to the world of the Mist-Torn witches, as two sisters who can see the secrets of the past and the mysteries of the future begin a quest to save the family they never knew existed.…
Powerful prince Malcolm is facing ruin in the wake of a curse that has destroyed his harvest. He blames the band nomadic Móndyalítko who summer in the meadow below his castle—and he is determined to root out the people who caused the blight by any means necessary.
When Céline and Amelie Fawe, descended from the Móndyalítko, learn that their mother’s people are under suspicion of sabotage and treason, they set out to use their magical gifts to save their estranged relatives and learn about their own origins.
Now it’s up to the sisters—along with their motley escort, including a prince’s lieutenant, a shape-shifter, and an old woman with a murky past—to discover the source of the curse to restore life to the ravaged land and protect the innocent from unfair vengeance.
