Considering her status as the world’s most powerful medium, Casper von Klitzing and her twin brother Baristan have lived a pretty normal life – until now.
After a horrific incident in her home city of Berlin, orchestrated by the mysterious Oct, Casper is consumed with vengeance towards an enemy she doesn’t understand. But the only other person ever to escape Oct was a witch – and so Casper is soon on her trail. But this witch does not want to be found.
Diving headfirst into the supernaturally secretive world of spells, charms and covens, it’s not long before Casper is crossing more than just the line between the living and the dead . . .
I’m a fan of exciting and clever urban fantasy and The Witch Who Courted Death is so much fun, action filled, witty, extraordinarily engaging all the way through.
This is my first Maria Lewis novel, although I have others in my mahoosive reading pile, I absolutely loved it. The characters are all highly intriguing, the levels of world building are uber cool- the story itself is pacy and addictive with some terrific relationships and all the magical mayhem you could possibly want.
Two sittings saw this one complete and I’m very sorry to leave that world behind, however temporarily. Even given the witches, werewolves, ghouls and goblins its a far better world to occupy than our own currently. Go live there for a while.
