The Last Witch - Blog Tour Stop

Hi everyone!  It's time for my stop in THE LAST WITCH book tour.



Debbie Dee recently moved to southern Idaho with her husband and three children where she is learning how to be a country girl in her favorite pair of blue heels. She adores fairy tales and happy endings, but secretly crushes on the bad guy now and then. As a dedicated musician who practices way too much, she never expected writing would sweep her off her feet until she jotted down a scene from a daydream, which turned into two scenes, which turned into a messy house and her first novel.
Since then she hasn’t been able to let a day go by without writing. 

For generations the Incenaga Witches have been forced to use their power to fulfill the wishes of others until they are drained of their magic and left to die. Desperate to protect his infant daughter - the last surviving witch - Emmeline’s father escapes with her to the forests where he vows to keep her hidden from the world and from the truth.
Sixteen years later, Emmeline is discovered and finds herself in the grip of a traitor who will stop at nothing to get what he wants, even if it means abusing her power until she dies. She is taken to a distant country and told she must marry the Crown Prince or her own country will be overtaken, its people slaughtered. But what sort of prince would marry a witch? And why would she be the difference between war and peace?
As she fights to regain her freedom, she is faced with a choice between a prince who offers a lifetime of security and a common gamekeeper who has no idea of her power, but offers his heart.
 But who do you trust when your power can be used against you?




My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What would you do if someday someone appear at your door and drag you away from home to marry a person you have never seen before? What if you discovered an important part of your life that has been kept as a secret from you?

Emmeline has never known that she was the last Incenaga Witch alive. When a group of men comes to her door claiming she has to go with them because she has to marry a prince, who she has been engaged with since a baby, her life is put upside down.

After being captured, she is kept captive in a castle and her powers start to grow. She meets a mysterious gamekeeper, who shows her beautiful places in the kingdom, the stables and keeps her company during her solitude.

Emmeline is a beautiful character, unaware of the potential of her powers, a very strong girl that only wants to be free, help her father and protect a prince she hasn't known yet, a proof of her good heart. We see her evolve and turn into a brave woman.

Of course we have a male character, Erick. He is a sweet guy, honest, handsome and with some secrets. But I have to say that at some points his secret identity was a bit obvious. However, his scenes and dialogues were funny, romantic and made the book greater.

The book counts with a really bad guy who is not afraid of hurting a girl just to get what he wants. The story is complete with treason, secret alliances, good fighting scenes and a good ending.

One of the best things is the rhythm of the story, which is very different to most YA novels. The book moves on with a strange and real timing. I love this fact because I didn’t know what to expect.

Debbie made an excellent job with this book, not only is very entertaining and make you feel a wide range of emotions, it also leaves you waiting for more.
