12+: Wicked: Resurrection - Nancy Holder, Debbie Vigue


What the Cahors witches thought was the end of their troubles turns out to be only the beginning. A threat more powerful and more frightening than anything they have faced before has been watching and waiting. Holly and the Cahors witches must come together and find Jer and Eli as both the Deveraux and the Cahors family lines face eradication. All the secrets of the Cahors will be revealed, forcing them to overcome their greatest weaknesses in order to achieve their most powerful strengths. Only united do they have any chance at victory, but before the end, sacrifices will be made, alliances forged, and old friends lost forever.


OK, having loved the original two titles in the series (recently released as omnibi) I was really looking forward to something special to help conclude the wonderful experience I’d had within their hallowed pages.

What unfurled however was not only a let down to the readers but something that I’m surprised actually made it to print as the title was not only slow in pace but almost tortoise like in its exploration as well as enthusiasm. Add to the mix no fizz or bang and an almost secondary consideration to characterisation and it’s a great shame as well as annoying after what readers had come to expect.
