I loved Once a Witch but l loved Always a Witch even more!!!
All the new characters which are brought into this book are unique, interesting characters which all have a real meaning within the story meaning none feel out of place or just 'there' which l find can happen in 2nd books in a series.
Tasmin is developed even more within this story and l felt her character stayed the same which is a good thing when you liked her character in the previous book. I have seem numerous of reviews where the characters have just changed too much in the second book, l felt the complete opposite of this!
The plot is even faster paced than in Once a Witch (which was pretty fast paced) and you can't stop at any place within this book and not find yourself wondering what's going to happen next until you pick the book up next. Even when you get to the next chapter there is always a cliffhanger making you want to read more!
The ending was nearly a disappointment but then l got to the last 5% (Kindle) and it totally turned around, WOW! It's not a big cliffhanger if there is going to be a third book and being honest it would be a good ending to the whole series as l feel satisfied with the ending, its one of those books you put down and are left with a book smile on your face.
At some points l did find myself confused because the times changing but most of the time l came to understand the thing l was confused about. The concept of the time seemed very thought out at all times and it was actually very interesting sitting there trying to figure it out then being like "Oh yes, thats very clever!"
Overall l loved this book, its a fun read which leaves you laughing in some places but also totally gripped in others. The interactions between the characters are great to read, even more so with the new characters and the good/evil traits.
