The Sun Witch is the first in the Sisters of the Sun trilogy. This book was a quick, easy read and I enjoyed the new world that Ms. Jones brings the reader to. With political intrigue, magical powers, love and suspense, this book has it all and I will definitely be adding this to my "keep pile". I look forward to reading more from the author as she is definitely an author that is out to entertain and wow.
