Review of The League of Gentlewomen Witches
So much fun! I love, love, love this book! More please!
Okay, that’s a lot of exclamation points. But, honestly, I had so much fun reading this book, laughing out loud, and spying on the silly romance of witch Charlotte Pettifer and pirate Alex O’Riley.
I say silly because these two people are so remarkably different, no one would ever put them together. But both have a strong, self-assured personality, which is, ultimately, what brings them together. Plus, they have a common goal. Getting their hands on Black Beryl’s amulet. All manner of witches and wizards are after the same thing which makes for hilarious magical antics all around.
Things to like this book: flying battlehouses (yes, that is what I said), levitation, classic literature, loving moms, magic at the call of crazy people, and a very fine butler. Also, of course, the romance between the witch foretold to become the leader of witches and a very charming, handsome pirate.
Through Netgalley, the publisher provided a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
About The League of Gentlewomen Witches by India Holton
Miss Charlotte Pettifer belongs to a secret league of women skilled in the subtle arts. That is to say—although it must never be said—witchcraft. The League of Gentlewomen Witches strives to improve the world in small ways. Using magic, they tidy, correct, and manipulate according to their notions of what is proper, entirely unlike those reprobates in the Wisteria Society.
When the long lost amulet of Black Beryl is discovered, it is up to Charlotte, as the future leader of the League, to make sure the powerful talisman does not fall into the wrong hands. Therefore, it is most unfortunate when she crosses paths with Alex O’Riley, a pirate who is no Mr. Darcy. With all the world scrambling after the amulet, Alex and Charlotte join forces to steal it together. If only they could keep their pickpocketing hands to themselves! If Alex’s not careful, he might just steal something else—such as Charlotte’s heart.
