The Witch's Tears
By Elizabeth Corr, Katharine Corr
Can true love’s kiss break your heart…?
The spellbinding sequel to THE WITCH’S KISS by authors and sisters, Katharine and Elizabeth Corr.
It’s not easy being a teenage witch. Just ask Merry. She’s drowning in textbooks and rules set by the coven, drowning in heartbreak after the loss of Jack. But Merry is not the only one whose fairy tale is over.
Big brother Leo is falling apart and everything Merry does seems to push him further to the brink. And everything that happens to Leo makes her ache for revenge. So, when strangers offering friendship show them a different path, they’d be mad not to take it
Some rules were made to be broken, right?
I love the front cover of this book, this is a case where I would be judging a book by its cover. The Witch’s Tears front cover contains shards of ice with a hole in the middle shaped like a heart.
This review will contain spoilers particularly ones that would ruin The Witch’s Kiss for those who haven’t read it.
At the beginning of the book Merry is dreaming that she is lying on the grass next to Jack. She is meant to be reading but all she can think about is Jack kissing her.
I’m dead, Merry. You killed me, remember? True love’s kiss?...There wasn’t a happy ever after, Merry. Not for us.
Merry is still having trouble controlling her magic and is getting a lot of judgment from the coven about her dangerous lack of control. Merry feels angry at their attitude and under pressure to perform the spells being asked of her.
Both Merry and Leo are in mourning after the events of last year. Merry is grieving over Jack’s death and Leo is mourning the death of his best friend Dan. Leo also feels like he is to blame for Dan’s death as he should have warned him.
With everything that is going on there has been an increasing distance between Leo and Merry. Merry is feeling more lonely than ever. She can’t tell her best friend Ruby about what happened last year and even if she wanted to Ruby has said she doesn’t want to know. Merry’s mum is around more but still has a tendency to bury her head in the sand and Merry is reluctant to share things with her gran.
Gwydion and Jack, the King of Hearts are defeated but Merry is feeling uneasy as though someone has been watching her house. Leo has been having similar feelings as well and with witches turning up dead all over the country are any of them really safe?
Merry has always been told not to trust wizards so when two show up Merry is understandably wary. Ronan saved Leo after he was beaten by some former friends but there is something about him Merry doesn’t trust even though Leo is clearly besotted . Finn is the other wizard and Merry can’t help but like him even though she thinks he is hiding something.
This was a good sequel and left me wanting more.
