Review- Whisper of a Witch
I rather enjoyed this book which is the first in the Savannah Coven Series. I had won this book in a giveaway and when I received the book I wasn't much impressed with the cover. It looks like a bad cut and paste on someones computer. But setting that aside it was actually a fairly enjoyable read. Right away you are introduced to the 9 women who form the coven. They all feel a calling to meet in one place. They are a nice variety and mix and each one is unique enough to keep track of who is who. Each woman has a unique special ability such as talking to animals, seeing the dead, super fast speed etc. When they finally all meet together they learn that each of them will be individually tested by an evil witch/sorceress and must succeed in passing their trial in order to basically save the world.
This first book focused on Shauni. There was a love story between her and a man named Michael. This was a rather refreshing love story because I didn't have to sit through page after page of flexing muscles or details of how sexy someones lips are etc. Their love story is a bit rushed but feel genuine and again while they have sexual chemistry I don't have to hear about on every other page. There is a lot of great humor in the book that I enjoyed.
I did feel at times there was too much a push of sisterhood and it was a bit hokey. They were too sisterly way to fast for a group of women who just met. Also I didn't care very much for the resolution to Shauni's trial. But all in all I really enjoyed the book and look forward to and do plan on reading the next book. I would give the book 3 and half out of 5 stars.
