Here comes the worst cover of a book I have read in 2014,or maybe one of the worst covers I have ever seen in a book.Seriously the girl in the cover destroys the beauty of the background which is actually pretty interesting,and the font doesn't match with the rest.I am mentioning this to let the readers know that don't judge this book by it's cover,it is way better!

Whisper of a Witch is the face paced stunning Savannah coven series by Suza Kates that is written with delicate humour and the intensity I have not encountered until now.

I was completely blown away by the secrets of the characters, the many different and entirely captivating characters in this book are in my opinion what makes the books storyline come to life through every turn of the page. At times while reading I found myself breathlessly turning the pages wanting and intrigued beyond imagina
I won this book in a first-reads giveaway, and I'm really glad that I did otherwise I wouldn't have known about how fantastic it was!

The book begins with a prologue that introduces a whole bunch of women all seemingly heading to the same place. It was a bit confusing to be bombarded with all this information first thing, but it's only a quick introduction, so it's not that bad really. Anyway, after that the story begins properly. We meet Shauni, who has the ability of communicating with animals

I was totally unfamiliar with Suza Kates and her books until I got this book (Whisper of a Witch) as a free promotion from Pixel of Ink for Kindle through Amazon. I love anything to do with witches, and I was immediately hooked. I bought her other two books of the Savannah Witches' Coven for my Kindle and simply flew through them. The one that particularly spoke to me was the second in the series,Conviction of a Witch. I won't give the story away...only that the witch in question was also a Chri ...more

During the first few pages of this book my thoughts were a little confused. There were so many characters brought into the picture all at once that I half convinced myself that I'd never remember who was who. In actual fact, the author was very clever in this respect and it didn't take long at all to feel I knew each and every one of them.

The story is about nine witches who have always been destined to come together. The girls didn't know each other before they felt the calling. Most of them did

Whisper of a Witch is the first novel in the new Savannah Coven series by Suza Kates. I won Whisper of a Witch from goodreads and am so glad that I did!
Shauni Miller has a secret that she has shared with very few people. She feels a pull towards Savannah Georgia where she meets Dr. Michael Black, a vet in Savannah. Also in Savannah are others waiting to meet Shauni and get to know her, they too have their own secrets. Working with these people will test Shauni in ways that she never imagined not

This book has a lot of characters which are all basically introduced in the first few pages of the book which made it difficult to keep all of the straight until at least halfway through. The characters are somewhat interesting although there's a lot of typecasting and for some reason everyone is gorgeous. There quite a few cliches sprinkled all over the place for the way magic works and feels at times a hodgepodge of a lot of different myths. Also, there are random descriptions that felt like t ...more

*squee* I may have just found a new favorite series! Whisper Of A Witch is the first book in the Savannah Coven Series. (I gather that there will be 8 more...Happy Dance!)

This first book really hooked me as it introduced me to the coven and Shauni. (She's the main character in Book 1.) I love how Suza made each of these characters so different and interesting. She really opened up the way for a great series!

I simply adored this book and personally found it to be different and refreshing. If your

As the tag line in my blog header notes, “I don't just read a book; I "crawl" right into one. I read, I devour, and I consume every last word until the story is running like a movie through my brain!” and with Whisper of a Witch , Suza Kates will have many a reader devouring every last page! Her use of setting is extraordinary to the point where readers will actually feel like they are there; that they are seeing Savannah through the characters eyes!

I completely fell in love with the main character, Shauni Miller and all of the other characters. This is one of those stories that made me ready to move straight to the next in the series. I loved the relationship between Shauni and her coven members. I also became completely infatuated with the love affair between Shauni and Michael.

Imagine you are one of eight women who felt a call to travel to Savannah, GA and when you arrive you discover you are a witch…a witch who will work to prevent a demon from being called into the world. Shauni Miller is a biologist; she is the non-violent, peace loving, vegetarian daughter of hippies who has the ability to communicate with animals. Shauni is the first of the witches to meet the challenge set before the group. She meets veterinarian Michael Black and finds him extremely attractive ...more

Shauni has a special talent. She can communcate with animals. When she finds herself irresistabley drawn to an island near Savannah, she discovers that she is not the only one with hidden talents. On the island she joins eight other women who are destined to fight an evil that has been dormant for years. She also finds another irresistable source in the form of a delectable guy with secrets of his own.

This is a really fun novel. It is sort of an old fashioned witch story real magic. I enjoyed th

The book starts out with a lot of characters and you learn a little about each one in the beginning with the focus being on Shauni. As the book goes along you learn more and more about each character, but you know that this is Shauni's story. I liked the friendship that she shares with her coven, the love story that develops with Michael and how the secrets unfold with each character. With so many women in the coven and the different personalities of each, there are so many ways to go with the s ...more

I loved the book I actually started reading it yesterday morning and finished it last night... I just couldn't put it down and now I can't wait until the next book comes out... The story was very interesting and keeps you in suspense about what will happen next, I interested to see which one of the witches is the next to be tested.....

This was the book that started me on my love for Suza Kates and her Savannah Coven series. Shauni is the first witch to undergo her trial. She also meets Michael. Her books are full of adventure, love and the male love interest in this book is as strong as the main character, which I love.

When I first began reading the book I was a little confused with all the characters that were introduced, but as I continued to read, they were sorted out fairly well - though here and there still had to rethink about who was who. I liked that the main focus of the book eventually revolved around only one of the witches, Shauni. I enjoyed reading about her relization of being a witch, facing what she was up against (evil) and working through it. I am really looking forward to reading the next bo ...more

This is my second win from First Reads.

Whisper of a Witch is a pretty refreshing read from the kind of paranormal romance books I usually pick up. Rather than starting off with a bunch of hunks swaggering about flexing their muscles and killing things (which I do like, by the way), Suza begins by introducing a group of females.

Reading about nine women coming together and forming a coven was enjoyable and some parts were quite humorous. I was glad they didn't spend too much time chanting spells o

Cute series:). Bought it because of 'other buyers purchased books by these authors' feature on Amazon. Reference author was Deborah Geary (love those twitchy books of hers!) This series (Savannah Coven witches) of characters doesn't pull me in quite the same way as those Wich Central characters of Geary's, but they're a pleasant diversion. for a few hours :-). Quick, but immersing read.

I was expecting more from this book, what I was not expecting was fashion, furniture, lovely buildings and a sappy romance. Oh and don't forget to get a many pedi because all witches need one just so they feel good. The story was very short on any real story line which was so disappointing as there was a great deal that could have been put in here to make it interesting. Witches are such fascinating creatures and there are so many directions you can take with building their characters why stick ...more

Admittedly, as I write this review, I’ve already read all of them. I read them quickly. I loved them. Obviously, this being the first in the series, there was a great deal of set up to be done, and I think it was well done. At the beginning of the book, you are introduced to each witch (and their seemingly matching cats) being drawn away from their normal lives by an unknown source that they know they need to follow. Although just saying this, it may seem far fetched, but they’ve all always know ...more

Really?!? not sure how anyone thought this narration was brilliant. The reading voice was nice. But that is it. There are 9 witches in the coven, the main character Shauni can speak to animals and they can speak back, there is our hero, Dr. Black.

I am not kidding. A very disappointing listen. I was a bit shocked too, most narrators try and give characters voice distincti
