Have you ever wanted to become a witch and live for hundreds of years?
Originally posted in 2018. The Witch's Daughter by Paula Brackston is a fantasy/historical fiction novel on the topic of witches. The story is about Elizabeth Anne Hawksmith who becomes a witch in 1628 after her family dies of the Black Plague. The story follows Elizabeth through time as she tries to escape Gideon Masters, a warlock/witch who wants her as his 'mate'. The story switches from present-day England to bits and pieces from Elizabeth's past. In the present-day part, she befriends a teenage girl named Tegan in the village, she is currently living in.
I listened to this book on #Audible and it's around 13 and a half hours long. I found this one on Audible when I was searching for fantasy novels and I picked this one because the narrator has such a nice accent, I thought I was not going to be bored with it.
First off, let me say, I did not completely finish this book. I had about 2 hours left and I just could not bring myself to finish it. It's not because the writing was not great, just the character of Elizabeth got boring and repetitive throughout the book. The other characters of Tegan and Gideon were just kind of bland to me. There was like no depth to them, which made me not very attached to them. I read the spoiler for the end online and I'm pretty sure I did not miss much by not completely finishing it. I will eventually listen to the second, The Return of the Witch but right now I am fatigued on the subgenre of #witches.
I give this book a 3/5 star rating.
