I’d been waiting on The Promise Witch forever, or that’s how it felt as the first two in the trilogy were soooo good.
From the start I realised that I was really going to enjoy this adventure with Mup and Crow, we see old enemies return and new friends step up.
There were some solid bits of humour throughout the book and there was one spot with the Grey Girl (from book two) which had me splurting my coffee as it reminded me so much of the Ghost of Christmas Present from Scrooged. This didn’t detract from the adventure and peril though, it just highlighted it.
The old Queen is still exerting her influence over Witches Burrough, playing with the weather and environment once more, but Mam is working really hard at getting the people to work together and realise their strength.
During this Magda, Crow’s mum returns and things take a massive turn for the worse, she is trying to return to the old queen, and everything gets caught up in this.
A story about love, sacrifice, loss and acceptance, where people have to help each other and trust each other to finally overcome.
