Review: Always a Witch (Witch #2) by Carolyn MacCullough

The adventures of Tam and Gabriel continue with more time travel, Talents, spy work, and of course, the evil Knights.

Since the gripping conclusion of Once A Witch, Tamsin Greene has been haunted by her grandmother's prophecy that she will soon be forced to make a crucial decision—one so terrible that it could harm her family forever. When she discovers that her enemy, Alistair Knight, went back in time to Victorian-era New York in order to destroy her family, Tamsin is forced to follow him into the past. Stranded all alone in the nineteenth century, Tamsin soon finds herself disguised as a lady's maid in the terrifying mansion of the evil Knight family, avoiding the watchful eye of the vicious matron, La Spider, and fending off the advances of Liam Knight. As time runs out, both families square off in a thrilling display of magic. And to her horror, Tamsin finally understands the nature of her fateful choice.


This is the  second book  in the series and it doesn't match up to the first one. Time travel and role play seemed a little boring somewhere in the middle...

Just when the choice made by Tasmin and the her feelings after making the choice- very easy to relate to (very real), brought a high, the book ended rather abruptly.
Tasmin never truly realised her own self worth and the family does little to help her there or show their appreciation for her I said earlier, the book ended rather abruptly for my liking.

Frankly, I didn't care much about this book. I had 'better' expectations from it..but it ended up being a dud !

My Rating:


  1. To bad it didn't live up to the first book!

  2. Hi, Anacrasia!

    I found you through your invitation on Book Blogs, and I'm really glad, too, because I LOVE your blog!! I've always preferred blogs with dark backgrounds and light, or colored, text. I'm now a follower!

    It's too bad this book was disappointing for you. I've heard a little about this series, and it's supposed to be good, but I've had the same experience with second books. Somehow they just don't measure up to the first one.

    Thanks for sharing!! : )
