Lora's Rants and Reviews

My own unapologetic opinions on books and writing. I DO NOT accept review requests but only review books I choose to read and I don't post reviews on Amazon. I'm also persnickity about genre and plot.

Substitution for Witches Square

High Witch (High Witch Book 1) (Volume 1) - Mona Hanna

What was I thinking? 1207 pages for The Witching Hour! As if trying to read 25 books in two months wasn't already a stretch for me!


Mona Hanna is on a writer's site and I've been getting notifications of her writing progress for ages. I kept thinking I should actually read her chapters, but I don't like to read on screen and there never seemed to be time.


Then she put the whole series on for free and to be supportive, I downloaded the lot. There they sat on my Kindle, waiting for me to get past any reservations that it might be too much like a lot of YA out there.


Well it's time. It's reasonably short and it can't be any worse than some of the stuff I've had off Netgalley, can it? Who knows, maybe it will be really good. The reviews cover the spectrum, but there's a definite lean upward.
