In the second installment of the Modern Witch series (see my review of book 1 here), the story follows Elorie as she learns to cope with living without powers in a powerful Nova Scotia witch community. When a new and improved fetching spell fetches Elorie into the Witches Chat, the Witches make it their mission to discover what kind of power Elorie could be hiding. As the full scope of a new power begins to be realized, the witching community must band together and learn to work in new ways.
A Hidden Witch is a little slower moving than the first installment in the Modern Witch series, but still has the heart of the first novel. The story is very much character driven rather than plot driven, and thankfully Geary has a wonderful talent for writing realistic and likable characters. The dialogue flows naturally and is sprinkled with humour, and the characters feel as though they’ve been friends for life.
An enjoyable story, although I found it a bit slow moving at times.
