Pacific Book Review on Something Witchy
“We have come to learn about witches from TV, the movies, and of course in literature. Some wiggle their nose and make things change like in Bewitched, others cross their arms and blink their eyes like our favorite genie, while still others wear rounded glasses and attend English manor schooling. Veronica Blade has created her own brand of witches, indelible to the reader’s memory, right from the hallways of a high school in her fanciful novel, Something Witchy This Way Comes.
“Guidance and direction, along with comradery and protection all become necessities for Tessa as she realizes just how “special” she is. Infatuated with a bad-ass young man Hayden, the two orbit around each another, forming a symbiotic relationship of survival entwined with acute sexual attraction in such a way the layers of their character development becomes the story and that will keep you glued to the book. This entire novel is written without any use of vulgar language or obscene behavior, a feather in the writing cap of Veronica Blade as she achieves a wholesome and adventurous read for her young adult audiences.
“I firmly feel Veronica Blade truly enjoys writing, as she demonstrates an acumen of knowledge understanding the mindset of young adults so well. Mixed into the witches brew a hodgepodge of supernatural powers, high school peer pressures, and the muse of sex emanates an unforgettable cast of characters and incidents. A delightful read, Something Witchy This Way Comes is an ideal gift for a teenager – something to show them witches don’t have to fly on broomsticks; instead they can drive an $80,000 car.”
