Halfway Dead (Halfway Witchy Book 1) by Terry Maggert
Kindle Unlimited Book!
Carlie McEwan is a witch. She works in her small town diner in her small town of Halfway, NY with her fat cat/familiar Gus. Carlie loves her town and loves her Gran who teaches her magic and gives her tea where she has to guess what herbs she used to brew it. Life is going how it always goes until one day a stranger stops by the diner and asks to talk to her. His name Major Pickford, he shows her a picture of a guy in the forest just behind her home where the last American Chestnuts are. His boss (A.K.A Maybe Grandma) and owner of Pickford Holdings. The Chestnuts are in the area called Thendara. This stills Carlie because though her families boring history because they avoid drama (Which isn’t a bad thing) she has heard of Thendara before and it has something to do with her family.
Before she could agree to help Major she has to talk with her Gran and then she does her own little research at the library and discovers something that makes her agree to travel to Thendara, but before she can tell Major someone else, Jim Dietrich, comes to town with almost the same story. Who can she trust? She doesn’t know all she knows is that she has to go to Thendara.
Have you bought a book and then it just sat in your kindle for months in months waiting for you to get a chance to read it? And it’s not because it isn’t a great book it’s because you have so many books on your too read list that it’s never ending. Will that’s what happen to this book. But then the author Terry asked me to read the next book Halfway Bitten which comes out February 9. So I was really excited because I already had the first book I just needed something to push me to scroll through my kindle until I found it and I’m so glad that I did! This book was really good. It drew me in and kept my attention. There was only one thing I didn’t like and that was how Major was there at the start but nowhere in the middle. I thought he was going to be a bigger part of the story. Although I love Wulfric, the sexy Half Vampire Half Viking, who leads Carlie and Jim to Thendara.
I love how Carlie is grew up knowing who she is and that she uses her magic for good and doesn’t ask for anything in return. It’s refreshing from the books where it always comes as a shock to the characters. I love how she hangs up the artwork her parents send to her because she doesn’t want to show up for a surprise visit and not see them hung up. I think it’s really sweet of her because I would just tell my parents to stop sending it to because it’s just gonna go into storage in the basement.
Anyways, if you love stories about witches who are kick ass and has a sexy Half Vamp Half Viking friend plus a very big fat sassy cat as a familiar this is the book for you. I really enjoyed it which is why it’s getting 4**** stars!
Until Next Time! Read On and Enjoy!
