When Lightning Strikes is about the 5 W.I.T.C.H. friends meeting a salamander named Danny. A salamander is a magical creature that can change into different things, and special ones can change into light. Will befriends Danny, and he steals the Medallion, a 'necklace' that basically stores the girls' powers. The girls have to take back the medallion otherwise they are powerless. They travel to a different land, where the sky is red all the time, and the thunderstorms are about 100 times stronger ...more
The book's only 111 pages long, and it's basically like reading one of the magazines in bookform. It's really cute and all through reading it now when I'm older all I can say is; aww childhood memories~~
Will was always my favourite growing up, and I enjoy reading about her a lot.

I don't like this series much anymore, but I'll say the confrontation scene at the end was great and very intense.
When I was a kid I was in love with W.I.T.C.H. It was fun, the characters were sassy and "cool" and of course - magical. The main thing that stuck with me in this book is Will still trying to find herself and the crimson lightning. It's pretty rare to see it - atleast where I live - and when I do get the chance I instantly recall this book.

i it a grate book for kids who have a hard time making friends
It was good, a little more somber than the Stolen Spring, but good nonetheless.
Sweet childhood memories...As you can see I used to be obsessed with W.I.T.C.H. when I was small. I've grown up but I'm glad I read the books and the OEL (OEI since it's Italian probably) manga. It was the time of my first shippings and learning about the world of manga and anime both OEL and original as well. I just wish the made the animated series better.

I used to like these series. Now, I don't think they're so good anymore. I got up to number 12 or something like that, and they've gone up to #26 or something... and they're still coming out!! I'm not really interested into them anymore, but I used to be.

I was around 11 when the first W.I.T.C.H comic magazine hit Denmark.
I thought it looked interesting, and fell in love with it. I later got this book as a gift from my Grandfather /along with Irma's story).
Growing up with this, it is hard not to like it.
Jeg har ikke læst serien i mange år, men da jeg læste dem, var de blandt mine yndlingsbøger, derfor giver jeg den 5 stjerner efter, hvad jeg syntes dengang.

Jeg kom til verden på Rigshospitalet i København d. 24.3.1960. Overlægen var i kjole og hvidt - han var blevet afbrudt midt i en gallamiddag - men min søster siger, at det er da ikke noget, hendes fødselslæge var i islandsk nationaldragt. Nogen vil mene at det således allerede fra starten var klart at jeg var et ganske særligt barn. Andre vil sikkert påstå at min mor bare var god til at skabe plud ...more
