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.
There is always a risk when you start a series with the second book instead of the first. I knew that there was a chance that I would be totally lost if I started reading Always A Witch. I was so very happy to find that though it is the second book in a series, that I did not need to read book one, Once a Witch, to be able to completely enjoy Always A Witch.
My favorite character in the story has to be Jessica Knight. Although she is not the main character I thoroughly enjoyed reading her story develop in addition to the main story about Tamsin.
Filled with vividly written scenes and endearing characters this fantastic time travel adventure is one You Need To Read.
