I loved the first two books in this series and was waiting, (not very patiently) for this final instalment. It didn’t disappoint and I loved the ending which brought me everything I was hoping for. The characters are wonderfully intense, lovable people who had me rooting for them every step of the way.

In the previous book Meg was exiled from Elizabeth’s company in Hatfield house, now she lives with her family under the protective gaze of her intense betrothed, Alejandro. Working with Richard,

SPOILER ALERT!!!




I really enjoyed Witchwise, and seeing Meg gain confidence in herself and powers. I was however left feeling rather disappointed that there wasn't an epic final battle between Meg and Dent. Is there a possible fourth book to remedy this?

While Witchrise is a captivating and satisfying conclusion to the Tudor Witch Trilogy, it didn't quite live up to the previous two books, in my opinion. I did enjoy this novel immensely, and I feel that each character got an ending that suited them, but some bits at the end just fell into place too easily. Also, I don't feel that any of the characters grew quite enough, though I am happy that there were no personality changes to make the plot work or anything of that nature. Lamb's writing was ...more

What it's all about...

This book is all about witches in the year 1555.

Why I wanted to read it...

I loved the cover of this book and it sounded really fascinating. The problem for me was I had no clue that this was the last book in this trilogy. I hate when that happens but I was able to enjoy it as a stand alone and I am not really sure why. I would not recommend it, though.

In this third book Meg Lytton is still a witch in love with a priest...Alejandro. Marcus

I enjoyed this historical, yet paranormal, trilogy. However, this last book didn't completely satisfy me. The ending seemed incomplete, as if Meg still had more story to tell. Also, the entire book felt rushed and the action scenes never lasted long enough to build up necessary suspense. Overall 3/5 stars; I am a fan, as always, of Lamb's characters and settings, but the story's structure lacked in this novel.

I won this paperback in a Goodreads giveaway.

I had yet to read the first two in the series, so when this arrived in the mail, I read those first.

I really enjoyed the series, but this third book was definitely more exciting.
I liked that it focused much more on the magicks and intrigue than romance, keeping the romance sweet.
After all, it's about a young witch during the time of the Spanish Inquisition in England, not a smut fest set in historic times.

I'm glad I finished the trilogy, because I might have wondered for a while how it ended. I wouldn't read it again though. I might recommend it, because it was interesting and fun, but I would forewarn that the reader might get annoyed at lots of characters :P

Romantic and thrilling, Witchrise was a good conclusion to the Tudor Witch trilogy. I wasn't as good as I was hoping it would be, but it did a nice job of wrapping everything up. So, while I was a little disappointed, I did like it overall.

All the characters were still great in this book.
Meg was still just as strong, willful, and independent as ever. She was determined to take don Marcus Dent and do what was best for herself. When she realized the full extent of her powers, she was definitely a

Review: I was so excited for the conclusion in this trilogy and I have to admit that I was a little bit disappointed! I felt a little bit like, in terms of storyline and action, all the good bits had been used up in the first 2 books and so this one suffered accordingly. I was really pleased to hear the ending to Meg's tale and I was really pleased with the way that this author concluded Meg's story but overall I wasn't overwhelmed by the storyline.

I really like the character of Meg. She is

I really loved the first two books in this series and I was almost completely sure that I would enjoy Witchrise as much as Witchstuck and Witchfall, and Victoria didnt let me down, I loved the book!

I was really eager to start reading it because Witchfall ended in a point where I really needed to know what was about to happen. The only thing that was a little bit weaker was the first part of the book because the narrative was kind of slow and wasnt happening any memorable thing though a big

"I fell in love with you because you are a witch. It is who you are, not merely a dangerous game you like to play, as I once supposed. Why would I wish you to relinquish who you are at heart? I was a fool to ask it of you."

Witchrise was well written and enjoyable to read. I haven't yet read the first two in the series, so I need to catch up to really enjoy it, but I really did. It is set up for a next book so more fun to come!

I did win this novel form Goodread, thank you, and also Victoria Lamb.

It was alright. It was quite boring most of the book and honestly a bit predictable. Didn't really think it was a good ending for the trilogy.

Oh, this was a really great sequel! But it doesn't feel like it's done, Marcus Dent is still out there, even if Meg banished him. I would really love a 4th book!

This final book was disappointing and a serious head scratcher. I wish I had stopped after the second book. The book ends with so many loose end and the main plot and conflict unsolved. But at least we know what happened with Alejandro and Met right?! Sure but the ending was so unsatisfying that I cannot help wincing when I think about it.

Good book, flows nicely. think the ending was a little rushed though, and there were definitely questions left unanswered. I think the ending should have been another chapter or two.

It was a fast read, I feel like there is room for additional story. I don’t feel like all the loose ends were tied up. But, all in all, it was an ok book and an ok trilogy.

Witchrise by Victoria Lamb is the final book in the Tudor Witch trilogy and I thought Lamb wrapped this one up well.

The book opens with Meg living at her father’s house with Alejandro and Richard. She is also working with Richard to reach Meg’s mother in the afterlife as they are hoping to get some answers from her directly. As they come face to face with Catherine, she shows them (kind of) where she hid her spell book, athame, and some other magical items. Once Meg finds them, she

[First of all, I have to admit that this was my own fault when I put in to win the book off of Goodreads. I did not realize that this book was part of a trilogy – and in fact, the last book. I have not read the first two books. Therefore, this review is based solely on me reading the last book as a standalone – which can be done. The only downside – besides missing what

Despite thoroughly enjoying this book and series (I would recommend it), I found a lot of the characters and plotline very 2D and undeveloped. Even at the end I found myself crying out "this is ridiculous". There were also a lot of historical inaccuracies. Not just how the characters behaved - I could excuse that for a relaxing read - however simple things such as DR JOHN DEE WENT TO CAMBRIDGE NOT OXFORD. He was offered a readership in mathematics there but declined it and that's about as close ...more

I have read and reviewed this series from the beginning (Witchstruck and Witchfall being books 1 and 2). I have to say that this may have been my favorite book in the series. For one, our lead character is finally gaining some confidence in herself, which is great to see as in the other two books I always felt this was a bit of a problem area in the book.

All of our favorite characters are back and some of our dreaded villains. This final book in the series does a fabulous job of wrapping

Ok so here in this las installment of the Tudor trilogy I find the author committing to one of my greatest pet peeves in writing. So I find myself constantly rereading the same content in order to lengthen the last book. It is a great ending but they knew where they wanted to end it and rather than adding more story in the middle or at the end the add repeating statements in multiple chapters. Grrrrr annoying am I the only one that notices this like it is ok to repeat key points here or there to ...more

Was a bit slow at the start but I really enjoyed this last book in the trilogy. The suspense and plot twists were pretty good and the number of characters who got on my nerves throughout the whole thing was a new record. I loved the ending, didn't think it was too predictable but I did ****SPOILER**** feel sorry for Richard at the end. Loved how Marcus was dealt with but I'm sorry I feel like no one fully appreciated what Meg did & she should have been upgraded from Elizabeth's maid in my ...more

This was a teenage romance which I didn't know until I got it, and I thought it was quite good for what it was. I'm not a teenager and I don't prefer romance but it was still an entertaining read and I think it will be enjoyed by the teenagers in my life. I did receive this book for free from goodreads first reads.
