Review: Witch Fire by Laura Powell
Witch Fire picks up with Glory and Lucas, they have joined WICA, Witchkind Intelligence and Covert Affairs, being registered witches and allowed to practise witch work as part of their job, including sky leaping. Soon they are faced with their first mission and are being sent undercover to Wildings School to investigate Endor's interest in it's pupils.
While there they find out more about an operation that can remove the Devils Kiss mark and the magic within that person, however this operation is all hush hush and only a select few know of it. Those that partake in the operation don't always come back the same, if they come back at all. With their cover compromised Lucas and Glory go their separate ways, Lucas is sent home, and Glory goes to Candice's place in Cordoba where she finds out
I read Burn Mark last year and I have been looking forward to finding out what will happen with Glory and Lucas. I found the beginning of Witch Fire started great and soon the action started, however I felt that the rest of the plot coasted along with the occasional bump to grab you attention before settling back down again. While I enjoyed Witch Fire, it wasn't what I expected it to be. Yes there was magic, hints of romance, mysteries and secrets but there was just something that was missing, I wanted to be dragged into the pages and feel like I was part of the adventure too rather than looking in from the outside.
It took me a while to read Witch Fire as there was only just enough to keep me wanting to know more but not enough for me to demolish the book in one sitting. If you have read Burn Mark then Witch Fire tells you more about what this duo is up to now and what they are capable of.
