A Handful of Hexes (Womby’s School for Wayward Witches #4) by Sarina Dorie

This is the fourth book in Sarina Dorie’s Womby’s School for Wayward Witches series. The author has intended for the books to be read out of order but I prefer to see the story develop chronologically.

In this book, Clarissa is coming to terms with her affinity. Having to keep it a secret is proving hard, staff and students are only beginning to tolerate her and they would quickly ostracize her if they discovered she was a red affinity. When Clarissa finds her birth mother’s diary outlining her experiments with the Fae Fertility Paradox, this could be a way for her to discover more about the woman who gave birth to her and solve the problem that’s causing a decline in both fae and witchkin fertility. She is also still searching for information on her lost first love Derrick and has to deal with a horny bunch of unicorns.

I really loved this book. Clarissa is still the dorky fantasy obsessed heroine trying to navigate through a world that carries so many risks. As the series progresses we learn more about the wide array of supporting characters and there is still plenty left to learn. This book like all books in the series is heavily influenced by Harry Potter. While it appears to be a young adult book the series features sexual scenarios that are not age appropriate. I was offered some of the books for review which is how I discovered this series but I did go back to the beginning, some are available on kindle unlimited and others I purchased.  I received a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
