Sometimes I feel like my reviews of Debora Geary’s books must get tedious, because they all say how much I love the books. Witches In Flight is no exception, so if you’re sick of hearing how much I love these books, and you’ve not read them yourself yet, well, then…. keep reading and deal with it.

This final installment in the Witches on Parole sub trilogy to the “Modern Witch” series wraps things up nicely. We’ve seen Lizard and Elsie grow with the support, community, and love of Witch Central.

This is the third book in the WitchLight Trilogy. I liked the gentleness of these books, but I think this was my least favorite. What I liked the most was the ease that the author incorporates into the relationships of her characters, through dialogue and characteristics. That is well done. But with such perfect characters, I wanted there to be some messiness in the plot. It was all a little too sweet. So 3 stars.

Oooooh nooooo....I've read as slowly as I could, procrastinated with chores and projects and I'm still done too soon. I don't want to be done, I want to continue to savor the beauty in the writing, the love and the humor in the relationships and yes, the sweet magic that is Witch Central. More, please!

Another adventure in "Love Land" with two of my favorite evolving witches, Lizard and Elsie with a supporting cast of many, all there to provide support and love for those newbies just finding their way. I really enjoy the non-witch Natalie, pregnant as ever surprising her witch husband and neighbors while still teaching Yoga. I do have difficulty reading Debora's books with any speed because of the frequent tweaks to my emotions that call up tears and blur my eyes. I've been reading her books l ...more

This book is the last in the Witches on Parole trilogy. If you haven't read the previous books - do. If this is your first foray into Debora Geary territory then give yourself the gift of tracking down the first book in the Modern Witch series and start there and work your way back to this book. You won't regret it.

This book wraps our journey with Elsie and Lizard and what a fantastic journey it's been. I've greatly enjoyed the transformation of two strong women from uptight, over-organised, tim
These stories are as addictive as Nutella cookies! I had to find out what happened in the end to Lizard and Elsie, and stayed up way too long finding out.

Ah, my favorite guilty pleasure of 2012: Debora Geary's witches... and their problematic approach to happiness. This, the final book in the Witchlight trilogy, brings Elsie and Lizard's story to a satisfying conclusion*. It's full of good advice, crises averted, delicious food, gorgeous yarn and wonderfully developed, sympathetic — but by no means simple or easy — characters. Our heroines have learned a lot over the course of these three books, and are even beginning to recognize what Vero and M ...more

The last book in the trilogy. While I liked the second one the best (oddly enough... usually that's the weakest in a trilogy), this one made for an utterly adorable read as well. I loved Josh, I loved his great-uncle, I loved all the members of Witch Central - witches and non-witches alike. I would have liked to see at least one non-witch be absolutely bowled over by the fact that witches exist though... they all seemed to take it pretty much in stride.

There's no real plot in this book, but the

A great book of new beginnings and endings, and changing of the guard. And everyone is satisfied ^^. If you can't stand a multiple HEA book (with only one real new romance, though), don't read this series.

And Elsie really has it the toughest, I feel, finally spreading her wings and flying right into the sun.

Oh and I REALLY appreciated an important coloured character in a Witch Central series. There aren't many. Govin... and who else? The prospective lover of Nathan from Costa Rica? Hmmm.

great ending to the 3 set of books about witches in trouble(rut) and need help. I just love the way author created the world where everybody is loving, supporting and tough. All the women and some men in these books are so attracive as a person. You really want to get to know them and join the Witch Central.

Now that I gobbled up all there is from Geary sensei.... Next please?

I picked up "A Modern Witch" out of curiosity. Six days later, and ten novels of pure spell-binding obsession, I find I have a distinct difficulty forming the words for this review---from an author with even more and longer novels under his belt that is a little embarrassing.

It's like this: You walk the same steps to your job everyday, knowing that there aren't but a handful of people who will ever really know what you do and how you do it. Then the toe of your shoe catches something in the

This is the third and final book in the WitchLight trilogy by Debora Geary and another great book about the Witch Central community. This third book about Lizard and Elsie brings their story to an end and tells how they learn to leave their old selves behind and find a new way forward with the women they've learned they are, can be and could be.

The women are very different yet become best friends. They have very different hurdles to overcome and aspects of themselves to work on changing yet bre

This is my last review of "witch books" for awhile. I feel as though I have exhausted myself, but when I get into something, I tend to get into it in a big way. In the final book of the Witchlight Trilogy, Elsie and Lizard face their dares and become the women they are supposed to be.

Nat, Lauren and Jennie all evolve into amazing women due to these remarkable two witches. It feels like they all have come full circle as this series comes to an end.

This was another delight from Deborah Geary. It is the final book of the Witchlight series and we get to see the further development and happiness of Lizard and Elsie. Of course, our old friends, superboy Aervin, realtor and mind witch Lauren, the renown photographer and mind witch Jennie, and many others. I thought that Geary might have had a scene between Elsie and Lizard in which she lets out some of the details of when Grammey died, whatever became of Lizard's parents, and more about what ha ...more
Lizard and Elsie, set free from their chains of self-hatred and uncertainty, are finally ready to fly...and to learn the hard lessons that come with the first few failed attempts to leave their cages behind. With the support of their new Witch Central family, however, the girls are able to learn from their mistakes and to find the courage and daring to make their wildest dreams come true.

An oasis. That's the perfect word for a Debora Geary book. Geary's touching plots, endearing characters and
This is the third book in a trilogy by Debora Geary. It follows the last month or so of Lizard's and Elsie's involvement in the Witchlight program, a mentoring program for witches. In this last book, we see Lizard grow more confident and aware of herself as a worthwhile person. She learns to trust in her own worth and accept her accolades for what they are--something to be proud of. Elsie on the other hand, learns to relax her boundaries even further and explore the side of her she has never exc ...more

ms. Debora Geary does it again! I feel so wonderfully lucky to have found her as an author so I could enjoy these series' and have a read that is not gooey mush, extreme violence or outrageous x-rated love scenes.

This book concludes the journey of Lizard and Elsie through their Witchlight programs. little do they know that they have been guiding themselves through what will probably be hardest parts of their journeys.

Can Elsie let herself go to be the free spirit that she longs to be without ha

Love watching Elsie grow now & lots of great stuff that could also be used as a reader to help improve your own life. Lizard - can't help but love her (as it's obvious the author did)! Just loving watching both of them grow up and become their own person. Love the relationship growing between Josh and Lizard. And some excitement happens with Elsie, too.

You'll see Lizard again (a little here and there), but would love to see more of her and Elsie in the future!

I loved the first book - and didn't expect the second on of this trilogy to be as good, and yet it was. Now the third installment in the journey of Lizard and Elsie is available, and while I definitely wanted to read it, I couldn't imagine it could be better than the first two. And yet, it was. It was better than the first two put together!

This was an excellent end to the trilogy. The characters continue to be enjoyable, and I think Lizard's fear of her own greatness and success is something I may have to deal with at some point in the near future. Every character who gets a point of view section is well written, and though it's always in the third person, each time the viewpoint shifts, there's a lot done to make the different characters feel like they have different voices. Both women's journeys come to natural albeit occasional ...more

The warmth, the love, the humor, the caring, the Witch Central surrounds you and stays with you long after you finish a book. In my case, they will stay with me forever.

I have absolutely loved all the Witch books from Debora Geary. Witches in Flight is the final in a spin off trilogy featuring all the same characters at closer look. This final book brings the close to Lizard and Elsie's journey of self discovery. Very satisfying!
