The Hidden Witch Reviews

  • Kristina Jean Lareau

    4.5 stars

    Better than the first! A seamless story with great expression and emotion.

  • Christy

    This was so beautiful and I may have shed some tears at the end. Full review to come!

  • Kim Clifton

    Turns out this series could get even sweeter, and it did. I’m a huge fan.

  • Danica

    Adore seeing the characters grow and change. Hope this will be a long series over the years.

  • Lizzy // The Bookish Unicorn

    I love this series so much, I can't wait for more!

  • Nicole

    Good, way more predictable than the first and seems like more of a middle filler than a sequel. While I read the first as more of an analogy for the trans experience, this one resonates with anyone being bullied for an outcast with a less than subtle metaphor for letting the anger fester inside you/the victim mentality.

    I hope the author continues the series, the world is great and I wish to see more.

  • Misty

    I found this an improvement on the first volume, and am curious to see more from the world and characters, should the series continue.

    A solid follow-up to the first book, consistent in themes, story substance, engaging visuals, and array of characters.

    This is a touching story of developing self-confidence in one's abilities and interests, learning about / cultivating true friendship, redemption and learning to move forward from one's mistakes. In particular, I think one of the story's strengths is the author's portrayal of Charlie's empathy, her genuine and simple attempts to welcome the new girl, Ariel, into her small circle

In particular, I think one of the story's strengths is the author's portrayal of Charlie's empathy, her genuine and simple attempts to welcome the new girl, Ariel, into her small circle of friends (and to persevere in befriending / helping her despite Ariel's threatening attitudes). Another is the author's portrayal of Mikasi's development from his monstrous state into his true self.

    No graphic or explicit details, but content contains more weighty subject matter that may appeal to and be understood by older kids (ex. sending vengeful spirits after those who hurt you, becoming consumed by your hurt and corruption).

    A recommended read for the middle school crowd!

    A solid and perhaps even better entry into the series about Aster, a boy who doesn't want to do what boys are raised to do, which is become shape-shifters. He wants to be a witch, which (!) requires some adjustment by his family and friends and society in general. His friend is Charlie, a girl who is neither a witch nor a shape-shifter, but is what J.K. Rowling would call a muggle (i.e., us). Charlie has a new friend, Ariel, a foster child, that seems to coincide with her being bothered by what

    A solid and perhaps even better entry into the series about Aster, a boy who doesn't want to do what boys are raised to do, which is become shape-shifters. He wants to be a witch, which (!) requires some adjustment by his family and friends and society in general. His friend is Charlie, a girl who is neither a witch nor a shape-shifter, but is what J.K. Rowling would call a muggle (i.e., us). Charlie has a new friend, Ariel, a foster child, that seems to coincide with her being bothered by what Aster names as a Fetch, a spirit that would seem to resemble a Dementor (but you can see my frame of reference may be limited here, not being a total fantasy geek here).

    Making a commitment to friending Ariel proves difficult, and takes up the bulk of the volume, though we also another friend doesn't want to be a shape-shifter. He wants to go to a human school with Charlie and study math and science. A dramatic event happens involving Charlie's once possessed grandfather, but overall good things happen, kids are becoming who they wanna be, friendships are forming. 3.5 stars, rounded up because actual middle grade readers in my house urge me to round up.
