Kat Mandu says…
The Twitches are back in the seventh installment of this fun, magical series. Alex, excited to be finally around people and magic she understands, feels at home on Coventry Island. Not so much for Cam, who feels like the only home that is truly hers is the one she left behind. Either way, both girls get to see their family estate their own is the ruined house where they were born. They get to meet up with Miranda, their mother, plus Ileana and Thantos, who each have agendas and drama of their own.
The plot focuses on them “coming out” into the witch land and accepting their heritage, dealing with the loss of their beloved mentor Karsh, and facing off against a new enemy they weren’t expecting.
Sersee is an interesting villain, though she doesn’t come off as truly evil—more something to be feared, but also pitied. She’s got a history and a bad one at that. Plus she’s determined to prove herself to Thantos, so she’ll do anything to please him, even if it means handing over the twins to him.
But in the end, the sisters kick butt and use their powers of good to help win the fight. It’s cheesy and sometimes overdramatic, but still a fun read for kids and adults going through their old books. *wink wink*
