Summary

A special middle-grade debut of magic and courage in a world of witches.

Arianwyn has flunked her witch's assessment: she's doomed. Declared an apprentice and sent to the town of Lull in disgrace, she may never become a real witch - much to the glee of her arch-rival, Gimma.  

But remote Lull is not as boring as it seems. Strange things are sighted in the woods, a dangerous infestation of hex creeps throughout the town and a mysterious magical visitor arrives with his eye on her.   

With every spirit banished, creature helped and spell cast, Arianwyn starts to get the hang of being a witch - even if she's only an apprentice. But the worst still lies ahead. For a sinister darkness has begun to haunt her spells, and there may be much more at stake than just her pride...for Arianwyn and the entire land.

An exciting read + great narrator choice!

It certainly did not disappoint! A struggling witch who is sent to work in a quiet village, expecting disaster to strike... Great adventure with a potentially sinister twist. With lots of mystery and excitement this is a story that you won't want to put down until you have read the whole book -- the narrator brings everything to life in this gripping story!
