I feel the need to start this book review by saying that all of these books are wonderful, adventurous, yet charming and I would not be a good reviewer if I did not say consider going back and listen to the first 3 books in this series before this one. Extend the enjoyment.

This book has less focus on Michelle's police work but that doesn't mean that there is one iota less adventure. N.E. Conneely has packed this story with surprises

A Witch's Concern by N.E. Conneely is a refreshing and highly entertaining read, revolving around a young witch and her adventures.

I loved this book; the plot was unique, the characters and their conflicts felt real and the sub-plots were very interesting. I enjoyed listening to the story from start till the end, and even though this is the 4th book in A With's Path series, I didn't have any trouble getting into it. So this book can safely be read as a stand alone as well, but I am considering

I'm so conflicted and sorry about putting this to a 3 star versus a 4. I really enjoyed the clan issues, the war, and the overall story so far in the series, but it was just so rushed that it really undermined it all. The dialogue wasn't as poorly executed as the 3rd book but it was still a bit too awkward. I think because things were just being forced to hurry along.

You can definitely feel the excitement going on (both in the story and the author's enthusiasm), but there is a line to where such

The series keeps getting better!

Michelle and Elron go from trouble to trouble while building their relationship. There isn't too much romance but enough to keep this reader happy! The conflict this time was more of a family affair and it was quite a showdown! There was plenty of detail and tons of action to satisfy any one!

I like this series....but as always I have caught up with the author and must now wait for the next book. I think given the first 4 it will be worth the wait. Very entertaining.

Know any witches who would be willing to join the police force to keep back the evil and vile supernatural creatures from the light of day? What about any vampires, werewolves, unicorns, or trolls? This supernaturally charged fourth installment is highly entertaining, mysterious, and growing in paranormal suspense! Conneely has written a series, filled with humans and magical creatures who can both live simultaneously in the same place and still know who each other really is. That is very ...more

Note: This is Book 4 in the series and really works best if read as part of the series.

It was nice revisiting Michelles witchy detective world again. I was glad to see that Ty (her magical T-rex), her guardian lion statues, and the protective plants were all still part of the story, if only minorly. Elron, Michelles elvish boyfriend, is still in the picture. I was glad that he had a backseat for most of the story as I find his character rather boring in this series.

I loved the first set of audiobooks in this series and this one doesn't disappoint at all! This audiobook starts with a bang with Michelle's kidnapping and stays intense throughout the whole novel.

Michelle is an independent, strong witch who feels no alliance to any clan and wants to keep it that way. Her Grandmother feels differently. I love that we were able to learn quite a bit more about her family history and the line of strong female witches in her family. Her Grandmother does not want to

AUDIOBOOK REVIEW:

After listening to the first three books of the series, I was revved up to listen to this one.

I enjoy the multiple narrators and the ways they use their voices, even in so far as to create the feel of distance if dialog stretches from another room or longer distance.

Lots of talent went into telling Michelles story about an unclaimed witch, her special skill with ruins and spelling, her recent relationship with a elf who she jokes with as geriatric, being over 1500 years old.

The first three books in the series were quite a ride, and I'm happy to see this one stand on its own. It starts out with quite the predicament with Michelle's kidnapping and doesn't hold the punches with her crazy and dangerous life.

This book felt to be a little different in the story line. We follow Michelle and the troubles that find her, bringing her to make some tough choices. We don't get a case she's working on, though there are small items that come up she tends to. This is mostly Michelle learning about herself and growing. The story still has the same action and full of spell being thrown around, but it's about Michelle this time and not just helping others.

There are more books in the series with Michelle. I'm

Audiobook Review

I have to say this installment is my favorite. First off, can poor Michelle just have a moment to breath and enjoy her new relationship with Elron? The answer is NO! A Witch's Concern is non stop action from page one. The drama. The Grandmother. The kidnapping. OH MY! I LOVED IT. The author has created quite a fun and intriguing series.

There were two narrators; Jeff Hays and Laurie Catherine Winkel. Both did a phenomenal job bringing the story to life. The danger. The

A Witch's Concern (4)

Things are really hotting up now. May I say, you need to read the previous 3 books, in fact it's a continuing story, so in truth all six books I'd say. May I also add based on the first three, its worth buying. It isn't the lightweight with a bit of ooww and ahhh I was expecting. This is about full blown witch's and demons, some creatures out of mythology, but its a well written and compelling series. Even has a bit of romance thrown in, real romance that makes you go ahh,

I wanted to love these books, I really did. Michelle is intelligent, a powerful witch, and a good person...however, she is too easily manipulated by nearly everyone. She never steps up for herself. She always knuckles under and does what everyone else but HER wants her to do. She won't even go after Grama Hag, until AFTER said Hag does in fact do exactly what she said repeatedly she'd do, because she wasn't promptly dealt with in the first place. It's just too damn annoying to go on.

Things get simpler and a lot more complicated

I enjoyed bouncing from one near disaster to the next. A whole lot of witches battling. I do wish the MC's would get going on their slow moving romance. I'm fired up for the next book (and the audio books).

Good pacing, decent plot, interesting characters, and clean writing ( I only saw one error. ) I still hate Elron the elfs name, and I wish they would stop talking about how old he is. Recommended!

This book is mostly about clans and clans politics. Michelle's grandmother is finally tired of waiting for her, and is determined to get her one way or another, and at the end, Michelle ends up fighting not only her grandmother, but destiny. I didn't like how accepting of everything she is, after fighting against anyone telling her what to do. I really liked the way she stood up to everyone at the beginning, but then, I felt like she accepted the final plot twist way to easily, even if it was ...more

This is a stellar series!!!

I know I should just rate this one book, but it would be a disservice to anyone reading the review. From the first word of Witch For Hire until the last word of A Witch's Concern, I was captivated, charmed, entranced and bespelled. Like a well crafted spell, Ms. Conneely draws you in until you firmly believe in Michelle, Elron, Landa, Ty and worlds brought to life in her books. I won't spoil anyone's reading by giving the story or plots away because each reader should

CONS
Still too much doing in proportion to understanding-feeling-being on the main character's part. It doesn't seem that Michelle has grown particularly in the last 4 books. She still hides her head in the sand when there's something she doesn't want to deal with (like the existence of other demons, which she was told about last book, but is busy trying to ignore), at the same time as she has a kneejerk white knight complex and thinks she's the only one powerful enough to save everyone

It is no secret that I absolutely adore this series. If you have read any of my reviews, you will know that. Even though, this book really managed to be even better than the previous three.

This time we are dealing with the clan business and let me tell you, it gets dangerous!

Michelle and Elron really have to give it all they have to survive this book and nothing will be the same at the end of the story. I can't wait to see what will happen in the next book! This has me so excited, honestly, I

Great story

At first a thought this last tale was boring and predictable so I left it for awhile. Today I came back to it to finish because I try not to let one go unfinished. Maybe it was because my prediction of the outcome was correct in it's finality. It was heading into her being both and taken charge of everything in the future, attitude, abilities, being compulsive yet not quite focused and still determined made it a foregone conclusion into the authors direction to this story.

Good story but lacking

Michelle has vanquished the demon, survived killing her boyfriend's wife, and survived a psychotic, power mad grandmother. The story is good except for the glaring under reactions. Her parents fear her grandmother, but do nothing when their daughter is hurt. Then her father makes plans for her without her knowledge, and Michelle is just like " okay." The landless witch suddenly doesn't get to choose, and Miss Independent is suddenly okay with everyone else planning her

A series well worth reading

I enjoyed the universe Conneely has created. The writing is well done and the characters are ones you want to spend more time with. Editing was also very good with few of the errors that can pull you out of a good story. The only negative for me were some contrived plot devices that did take me out of the story especially when the main character, normally very strong and smart, would be unbelievably dense about certain things.

New Future

Excellent book! Michelle and Elron are growing together. How far will their relationship go? What effect with the clans have on them now that Michelle belongs to two. Politics will play a big part in her future. What will the next book in the series bring? The only part of the book which was unnecessary was the whole greenhouse plant growing/ eating part. I felt the book was well written and kept me engrossed but the greenhouse was unnecessary.
