A wonderful journey
I thought I didn't need this story, I wanted the all the promised magic that is coming with Sister Witches instead.
I was wrong.
This addition to the historical collection is so beautifully written, I devoured it. I laughed, I cried, I felt everything the characters were going through. Knowing the main characters from Katie's other series, (which I'd recommend you read Dragonmasters Triology before the ADVOCATE) it was a special gift to be able to venture deeper into their lives, from the beginning. Katie's narration of this novel is magic, she has the capacity to relay what each individual is feeling, all the while painting a vivid living picture of what is the happening and hint at what's to come. As usual she has the perfect blend of delightful torture and delectable satisfaction.
I feel even more ready, primed, and excited for Sister Witches, bring it on Katie...
