The Black Witch: An Epic Fantasy Novel (Black Witch Chronicles #1) Cover Image

Published: Harlequin Teen - May 2nd, 2017

Yes, this novel revisits well-trodden themes of; unrealized magical powers and coming of age. However, Forest brilliantly addresses this subject matter in a unique and fresh manner. With a basically good but flawed main character, the first few chapters are disturbing and force the reader to examine some of their own preconceived ideas. Yet, as the protagonist grows, the story unfolds with understanding and hope. Any of three quotes could apply to this story:

  • "History is written by the victors."
  • "You've got to be taught to hate and fear."
  • "When you know better, do better."

This is a story that is both timeless and timely. I strongly recommend this book. - Sandy
