"Witch Hunt" by Kristen S. Walker is the second volume in the series. Immediately after reading the first book, "Small Town Witch", I didn't waste a minute before diving into the second book.

The second book starts right where the first one left off, but this time around, Rosa's world is turned even more upside down. Her mom is on the lamb along with her sister, Akasha and no one seems to know where to find them. Against her better judgment, Rosa contacts the Unseelie who helped her mom go into h

I read 2 of the 3 books in the series and found them to be a decent read in the YA genre with a whole lot of fantasy thrown in. Writing about and handling teenagers is rather difficult, but the author manages to bring out their characteristics with perfection.

The writing is simple and the story line is interesting with a setting in a small town where both magic folk and humans co-exist. The humans know about the vampires, sorcerers and others and even go to school with them. There is a lot of f

Witch hunt was a great addition to this series. In Witch Hunt, Rosa has to face a lot more challenges than she did in the first book. She not only has troubles with her mom, but now she's having troubles with the fae court, her friends and her boyfriend. Not everything is so rosy anymore, there's a bigger dose of reality injected in this book. There was a lot of focus on the building and deteriorating of relationships, whether it's between Rosa and her family or Rosa an her friends. There was al ...more

Did I enjoy this book: I think Ms. Walker fell into one of the classic second-book-in-a-series blunders — she sacrificed a few rounds of editing to get things published more quickly. Her story was just as fun as the first (though this one tends to dwell more on teen relationship angst instead of cool magic stuff), but the grammatical errors and/or editing misses were significantly more common in book two. Witch Hunt is a great second installment, but Ms. Walker’s editing misstep cost her a star. ...more

This book is about a girl who at 17 gets her world turned upside down and the main culprit is her mom. Though it may seem to have a lot of witches, fae, vampires and the rest, it is actually a more of a mystery novel to me. The amin character is hunting for answers, hunting for her mom and trying to be a good witch all in one but when push comes to shove what will she do to save her little sister. with the help from her friends, she does everything inher power and theirs to do what needs to be d ...more

Witch Hunt is the second story in the Fae of Calaveras County series. It continues the story of Rosa and her family with Rosa trying to locate her younger sister, Akasha. Akasha has been taken by Rosa’s mother, Rosmertz. Rosa has a new boyfriend in this book and is dealing with the loss of her sister and mother while also being torn between her mother’s plotting with the Unseelie and her own ties to the Seelie court. There is some romance, some magic and there are a lot of decisions that Rosa ha ...more

I was enthralled with book one and started Witch Hunt (book 2) right away. Again, this author has a gift for writing. She is subtle with her plot line and creates a world that the reader can escape within. My only criticism is the ending. I feel she leaves too much unresolved. I don't want to ruin it for anyone, so I'll say that I still feel like I get manipulated into a story line that is dragged out like a soap opera at times. There is an inconsistency with how important the mother is to the c ...more

A story about teenagers struggling with their parents, friendship, love and different views of the way their community is constructed, complicated by magic in different forms and shapes. Nice touch: some of the chapters are told by the 'evil' mother. I'm looking forward to reading part 3!
Thank you, Kristen, for sharing this story!
