This is the eight 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. I am in love with this series. I read all current books in this series back to back.
Clarissa is still trying to rekindle her affinity with limited results. She is still hoping to find a cure for Derrick but she finds herself torn when she begins to associate with Prince Elric of the Silver Court, the only fae who continued to produce offspring when other fae could not. He insists he has fallen in love with Clarissa but she is wary. Fae are known to be capricious in their attentions.
Once again I 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. I hated Prince Elric, there is something off about him. As each book progresses I find myself waiting for a relationship to develop between Clarissa and Thatch. Thatch is such a complex character modelled on the enigmatic Professor Snape from Harry Potter. Very little is revealed about him, whether he is a spy or on Clarissa’s side is still a mystery. 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.
Each book is a continuation of Clarissa’s journey and storylines flow through each one, while minor issues are resolved in each book they all end without total resolution so you need to stick with the series.
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 from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
