The Witch’s kiss byis the forth book the Merriweather Witches series and is the first one I have picked up. This particular book follows the plight of Sage, a witch harbouring a dark and deadly secret, and Marianne, a ghost for all intents and purposes but for one small detail, her body still draws breath. Marianne and Sage seek for the means to undo the curse placed upon her but a cure seems beyond the realm of hope. Side by side they battle the odds together, learning untold secrets about each other, and some of these secrets are so dark, so life altering, it could bring to question the very nature of their relationship. Both are cursed, both are haunted by events of their past.
Since I started at book 4 I can confidently say Tricia Schneider does what all great series authors do, creates a stand alone tale when no foreknowledge of the previous books are required. Never at any point did I feel I had missed an important snippet of information, and anything I needed to know from the previous books was nicely explain in context to the story unfolding.
I found The Witch’s Kiss to be a gripping and interesting romantic paranormal, with a twist or horror and humour to keep the reader on their toes. The characters were enjoyable and the style easy to follow with nice pacing and flow. There is certainly enough curiosity to ensure the reader keeps turning the pages.
