Summary

Paula Brackston's debut novel, The Witch's Daughter, was the little book that could - with a captivating story, remarkable heroine, and eye-catching package, it has now netted over 200,000 copies in all formats. Now Paula returns with its sequel, The Return of the Witch, another bewitching tale of love and magic, featuring her signature blend of gorgeous writing, a fabulous and intriguing historical backdrop, and a headstrong and relatable heroine listeners will cheer for.

After five years in the Summerlands, Gideon has gained his freedom. Elizabeth knows he will go straight for Tegan and that she must protect the girl she has come to regard as her own daughter. In the time since she the dramatic night in Batchcombe woods, Tegan has traveled the world, learning from all manner of witches, and she is no longer the awkward teenager and novice spellcaster she once was. However, her skills are no match for Gideon's dark, vengeful power, and he succeeds in capturing her. Will Elizabeth be able to find her? Will they be able to defeat their nemesis once and for all?

In a breathless journey that takes them through history to the 17th and 19th centuries, witch pursues warlock. Three people steeped in magic weave a new story, but not all will survive until the end.

Didn’t want it to end

I loved every bit of this book I really didn’t want the story to end. It’s one of those books that even though it’s finished you keep thinking about it and all the characters.Loved the narration as well was totally absorbed

Waste of a credit

How disappointing. Another reviewer mentioned how many times she’d rolled her eyes during this story... I too lost count. Narration was horrible (par for this narrator though) and the story a huge let down after The Witch’s Daughter. Don’t waste your credit...

Return of the Witch

It was an easy listen, I very much enjoyed the narrator. The story got wordy at times and a little
Overmuch in the description of things, but it was good for the long car rides we bought it for.

Nice clean finish to the series.

Liked the story, although it could be frustrating at times with Elizabeth being a few centuries old witch unable to do certain seemingly basic spells to get her and the other characters out of trouble in a pinch. Narration was very good.

Fantastic! Wow! Must listen too!

This book and The Witches Daughter were amazing! The first book was fantastic, but this book, the story of Elizabeth and Tiegan, took me out of my boring life and put me in a whole new world! I was there! The writing, the narration, the supporting characters were perfect. I feel as though I need to say thank you to SOMEONE!
