Ariel is getting used to being a new mother, and excited to see her best friends Hallie and Sean again. She just wants to spend time with them and relax, and hear about their wedding. Unfortunately, relaxing is the last thing any of them can do on this visit.
Thrust into a new place, the High Witches are delighted to find the fourth—but the circumstances couldn’t be worse. A group of men are determined to stop them from casting a spell that could change the world, bringing immense joy but also great disaster. The risks of the spell might be beyond their ability to handle.
A great darkness is coming. It will take more than two High Witches to stop it: it will take a coven.
High Coven is the third and final book in the High Witch series.
I can say that it was as usual an enjoyable read and I was really happy to connect again with the old characters that I’ve missed since the last book.
Ariel, Brayden, Sean and Hallie are back but their reunion is disturbed by something that could affect the whole world. New characters appear and the peaceful atmosphere of the book takes another turn.
As a whole, I think that the book was lovely (since I am already familiar with the author’s style) and it was nice to read an epilogue in which we find out what happens with the characters.
This last book of the series was a pleasant read. I liked the fact that although the tension makes its appearance as the action evolves, there is some sort of calm and comfort which comes from the bonds that the characters have developed.
I must admit that the first two books from this series were my favourite but I also enjoyed reading High Coven. 😀
If you have not read this series yet I really hope that you can do it soon since it is a relaxing fantasy read, a nice combination between romance and magic.
” Raven shut his eyes, his already-pale skin seeming to become ghostly. “We are the carriers of the prophecy. It has been passed down from our fathers, and their fathers, to us. We are supposed to protect the world from the dark force. I don’t know if you realize this is bigger than you and Ariel, Hallie. It’s bigger. It concerns the world.” ” (p.57-58)
“She began to cry, and Cameron didn’t hesitate this time. He wrapped his arms around her, holding her to his chest, placing one hand on the back of her head. She cried against him, clinging to his shirt. He shut his eyes for a moment, wanting more than anything just to take Alexandra and Julia far away and not look back.” (p.72)
“But there was no inn.
There were no buildings.
There were no people.
There was only smoke and ash, rubble and the remnants of fire. Only the smell of charcoal and flames and burned flesh. Only a wasteland as far as they could see, everything burned up to the ground. There were the screams of the survivors. But those were only few.” (p.112)
