“Mail Order Witch”

It didn’t take long for the word of an enchanted item shop to spread throughout Watersedge like a fire in a used bookstore. Gawkers walked slowly by the front window during the month it took me to enchant supplies and set up the shop, staring inside like I was on display at a zoo. What kind of animal did they think I looked like? A flamingo with my long legs and too-short body? A black panther with my dark hair? Or maybe I looked like a pig—I mean I could devour the aforementioned pumpkin pie almost as quickly as my sister.

Or was I just a perfect specimen of a witch, with the natural blue highlights in my hair that I refused to cover like so many witches did?

*Spoiler free review*

I have to say, the idea of having a series of anthologies where the stories run throughout was really intriguing to me. In Hidden Magic, the first installment of this series, we get introduced to some amazing characters. Each author creates a unique world filled with magic and – in many cases – mayhem.

While I enjoyed reading all of the different tales, I thought I’d highlight a couple of my favourite stories in the most spoiler free way possible.

A Veil is Parted by Anela Deen: 4.5 star read for me. I found this tale to be a great way to start the anthology off. It’s eye catching and gave me everything I want from a fantasy short. The characters were complex and the story left me on the edge of my seat waiting to see where the story will take Jessa and Simith next.

The Mail-Order Witch by Joynell Schultz: 4 star read for me. I have a soft spot for witches, especially if they’re misfits in their community. It can’t be easy to uproot your entire life to try and make a marriage work – let alone a new business – but thankfully Etta and Roman are in it together. They might not have known each other long, but they stand by each other no matter what.

Even aside from these tales, this book is filled with fantastic/al reads. Any fantasy reader is bound to find something to enjoy in this wonderful bindup. If you haven’t done so already, I highly recommend picking these tales up. Some of these tales are standalones, while others tie in to the authors’ other works. If you’re looking for a one off or a new series to try, you might just find your next read in these tales.
