Review: Always a Witch

Title: Always a Witch
Author: Carolyn MacCullough

Synopsis

The adventures of Tam and Gabriel continue with more time travel, Talents, spy work, and of course, the evil Knights. 

Since the gripping conclusion of Once A Witch, Tamsin Greene has been haunted by her grandmother’s prophecy that she will soon be forced to make a crucial decision—one so terrible that it could harm her family forever. When she discovers that her enemy, Alistair Knight, went back in time to Victorian-era New York in order to destroy her family, Tamsin is forced to follow him into the past. Stranded all alone in the nineteenth century, Tamsin soon finds herself disguised as a lady’s maid in the terrifying mansion of the evil Knight family, avoiding the watchful eye of the vicious matron, La Spider, and fending off the advances of Liam Knight. As time runs out, both families square off in a thrilling display of magic. And to her horror, Tamsin finally understands the nature of her fateful choice.

A thrilling sequel to ‘Once a Witch’. Tamsin travels back in time to warn her family about the Knights, all while trying to find a way to perfect the Domani. Tamsin explores a whole different world: New York in the late 1800s. Lost and clueless, Tamsin must find a way to contact her family and penetrate the rich walls of the Knight household. Introduced to a wide variety of new and old characters, this tale is truly thrilling and full of surprises. This was definitely a great novel that I’m sure MacCullough fans would love as much as ‘Once a Witch’!

Quotes:
I study Jessica’s face. From this distance, I can’t tell, but it seems that tears are oozing down her cheeks. “It seems you’re running low again, Mother. What next? You can’t keep losing lady’s maids, you know, even if they don’t have any family. People will start to talk. Wasn’t Livie the fourth one to have disappeared?”
“She wouldn’t have died,” La Spider says lightly. “Not if you hadn’t been so stubborn.”
“Stubborn?” Jessica says with a brief laugh.
“Enough,” La Spider says.
-Jessica and La Spider

Hooking the cups with my fingers, I start across the room toward Jessica and her new music tutor, who finally raises his face from the music stand and meets my eyes directly.
Hot tea scalds my fingers as the cup falls to the carpet.
It’s Gabriel.
-Narrator (Tamsin)

Set in a fallen world, you travel the sea, explore, and talk to people to understand the world and characters of the story. Your choices dictate events later on and affect your interactions with the story. Think choose-your-own-adventure meets ADSOM's White London. Link in bio for my review!
