Elorie Shaw, steeped in the traditions of the Nova Scotia witching community, but not a witch. The fetching spell must have goofed this time... or did it? Travel to Fisher's Cove, Nova Scotia, where Moira is matriarch and the old ways are nurtured and passed to the next generation.

This is an outstanding series. It is super light reading and very Disney-esque in its family oriented message of kindness, forgiveness, patience and love. Normally i read more zombie books, apocalypse, death and destruction books but i like the occasional fantasy and the witch aspect caught my attention after so many vampires and zombies so i gave it a try and just feel in love! Great character development and family dynamic. Although the stories are pretty light weight and too "all good things ...more

I was a bit disappointed with this second novel by Debora Geary. It was very like the first in terms of character and story—a focus on the characters and witch community without much in the way of external antagonist. I think I might come to appreciate this, though it's not something I generally seek out in books I read. You'd think it wouldn't have a “story” as a result, but Geary does a good job drawing us into the inner lives of her characters and that provides all the conflict and plot you'd ...more

A while back, I reviewed Geary’s first Indie published novel A Modern Witch and I had the pleasure of reading the sequel, A Hidden Witch as well. With the first book I developed a wicked case of puppy-love, but with the second I’ve become flat-out enamored with this series and the characters.

I stayed up far too late last night reading it, and in fact, I started on it the moment I downloaded it to my iPad. Even though I hated to do it, I eventually forced myself to go to bed at 2am, saving the la

Who loved the characters of the first book will love the continuation of their mildly exciting adventures and the new characters. Who liked the lightly mechanical descriptions of different kinds of magical power will really get a kick out of this book. Who wanted to hear more about the online castles and moats, that's your thing.

Unfortunately the book only keeps up with the larger witch community and the Walker family and there's precious little of Lauren and Nat in here. Marcus is the best char

I think I figured out why I like these so much. Everyone in this storyline is so supportive of each other and the characters all try to work towards a greater good. We are so lacking in those things in our world right now, that it just feels good to read about this kind of cooperative spirit. Granted it centers around a witch community, which isn’t for everyone.

The only thing I strongly caution about, you may not be able to find these books! Books 1-3 in the 7 book series were the only ones to b

I just got finished with the second installment to Debora Geary's A Modern With Series and was not disappointed at all. Like a few others I receive this free from the author but I would not have had ANY problem paying for it. Debora has a wonderful way of heart warming way of telling a story and keeping the reader riveted to the pages. This story is about Moria's granddaughter Elorie. Elorie had always hopped to be a witch, and growing up among a family of witches who wouldn't share this desire. ...more

A delightful story of technology being adapted to recognize witches who are maybe wandering in the world without any training to control or discipline for their budding powers. This story is like others that Debora Geary has written about Witches that just sings with the sense of love and family. If only the real world had such positive views of how life can be, how much better off the world might be. This story centers on a Witch who always felt she didn't have any powers and longed to be like ...more

Debora Geary has become my "go to" author when I need something happy - when life is getting me down and I need a lift. If I could choose a book, or series of books, where I could actually step into the story and live, it would be something by Ms. Geary. I want to live in this world, get to know these people, and experience what they experience.

A Hidden Witch was a little heavier on the magic than A Modern Witch, and, perhaps, a bit more "out there". That's not at all a bad thing in my opinion,

Since I gobbled up the first book the Modern Witch and loved it sooo much. I pretty much bought everything that's available on the series! That's how much I liked it.

This book follows the first book and shows more of the world of the Modern witches. It goes into more about the family and the relationship surrounding them. The concept of the hidden "witch" talent here is very modern and interesting. Made me want to play the game! The additional characters further introduced here and were just gl

I've read the first three books of this series, and each one reads like a season of 7th Heaven. Very family oriented, lots of warm fuzzies, an abundance of characters and subplots.

This entry was the weakest of the three I've read. It's very angsty all the way through. I didn't ever warm to the fetched witch in this one. She just never became someone I could like. There was also a veritable onslaught of poignant moments, one right after another. I like a good poignant point but not so much that I

Another great book in this series. I am still amazed at how engaging the story of this extended family of witches is, considering they're not dysfunctional. This book reads like a series of happy endings, although it does contain some drama as well.

For those keeping nutritional track, if book one was all about ice cream, book two is all about cookies.

I am rooting for potato chips and Doritos for book three.

As I was reading, I felt myself mentally rolling my eyes at the characters... a lot. I liked the first book in the series well enough -- a little quiet mental floss from my usual vampires, time traveling, Highlanders and wizards, but this second book bored me silly. I usually devour a book in a day or two, but I had to make myself finish this book.

Don't ask me why I picked this up,I myself have no idea,given the low rating I gave to the first book.
Guess I was just curious.And this time,curiosity did not kill the cat,it provided her with a giant fluff bed to fall back on with so much sweetness she's probably turned diabetic.
When I read the first book,I went in with this expectation of seeing epic conflict,wild magical duels and wresting with inner daemons.Because...witches!(I blame Harry Potter).Needless to say I was disappointed.But this
In this second book in the Moderm Witch series, the internet witch fetching spell, which has been tweaked and upgraded by newbie witchling and gifted coder Ginia, fetches a non-witch member of the Novia Scotia branch of the family, and shows there is significant power in Elorie. Though Elorie herself wants nothing more than to be a witch, she knows she has zero magic.

What follows is nothing less than the discovery of a latent magic that requires internet contact to engage and use. As Elorie and

I turn to these series (this author) when I feel like every other book I pick up is trying to blow my head up with all the cheap angst.
These books are mellow, and filled with a variery of pleasant characters working through their issues.
Unfortunately, in case of this specific book, I kind of found the whole Net magic-computer-iPhone talk too tedious, uninteresting and slow. (But still better than the cheap angst I came running away from.)

Omg luv this book i couldnt put it down( unless i had to) i am soo happy we got to see more of nat n Lauren n see how her magic is growing. I also had some laugh and some heart felt tears when we got little in the some of the new characters background. I can honestly say that this series is a keeper n i cant wait to read the next book.

I really love this series, and I am grateful that I had bought it years ago, as it looks like it may be harder to find now. If you want to escape to a mostly safe, happy world with loving families, romantic interests, online gaming and of course, Magic! This is the spot!

I absolutely loved the ending. Although I am slightly worried how the rest of the series will turn out now that the NetWitches are so overpowered that they can move a virtual house into reality and make it real.

This book was a little difficult to get through. While I enjoy the slice of life approach, I do feel that other than a couple of characters, there is very little development in personalities.
