Recommends it for: fans of Practical Magic and True Blood
Typically, I don't read books out of sequence, but the premise for Halfway Drowned intrigued me. I've always been a fan of Viking myth/lore. Throw in some heavy paranormal elements and a formerly vampire Viking? Count me in.
I loved the relationships between the supernaturally special citizens of the town, in particular the main character and her witchy responsibility to protect them. A lifelong fan of magical realism and fantastical elements in a modern setting, I enjoyed how Maggert wove both

“The time for pure magic was past. It was time to bring out my b***hcraft.” Yep, this is Carlie! She is our resident witch of Halfway that has an incredible talent for waffles and has an amazing love for Vikings (hey Wulfric!).

If you have followed this series you know that Carlie is our resident witch of Halfway and she does not take kindly to “visitors” (the things that go bump in the night) wreaking havoc on her beloved town. Out of the blue a Viking ship surfaces in the lake and this brings a

*I received a free ARC of this novel. The decision to review and my opinions are my own.*

Kind of appropriate in the run-up to Halloween, Halfway Drowned is book 4 in a witchy paranormal urban fantasy series.

The book has a cosy mystery feel to it, despite being nominally fantasy, and featuring an eclectic mix of witches, vampires, Vikings, ghosts and more.

I confess to finding myself somewhat muddled by the plot in places, as it sometimes seemed that the characters were referring to information an

The fourth installment in the Halfway Witchy series doesn't disappoint - Carlie is as quirky as ever but this time she's travelling a darker path which switches the whole series up a gear. She has to deal with the consequences of her actions from the last book and there's no guarantee that she'll get out of it unscathed.

This book was a fun reintroduction to all of the characters from the previous books, as well as an introduction to a new one who will probably be cropping up again in the future.

This guy has become one of my one-click authors. This is the second series of his that I have read. I cannot get enough of this series. Like I would seriously love it if the author just quit everything else and wrote book after book just for me (I can dream can't I?)

In this installment of the Halfway Witchy series, Carlie has to face the repercussions from the choices she made in the last book. Even though this is a continuation of the series, I believe you could read this one without having re
Halfway Drowned is the fourth book in the Halfway Witchy series and for some reason I didn't like it quite as much as the second and third books, although it was still very entertaining. It actually made me laugh out loud several times and I felt was more emotionally invested in the characters than ever, but I guess I just didn't like the "paranormal conflict" in this one as much as I did the ones in previous books. In each book there are a few constants: Carlie and her gran make 1) a new friend ...more

And so starts my 2019 readfest. Loving this series. Carlie, a witch from a long line of white witches, and Wulfric, a viking turned vampire, are rustled out of their cozy love nest when the remnants of a viking longship washes ashore in Halfway. The tourists and science geeks are all over it, but something's wrong, dark, and it's lurking a little to close to Carlie's man for it to be safe.

Obs, book number four. This series is light, fun, and full of good old fashioned heart and a little bit of w

This book was really riveting. It had a lot of mystery shrouded around the raising of that Viking ship. As in each of the books Carlie and Gran make a new friend. This book was good but hard to keep focus without taking breaks because I didn’t like the way the story was heading. In the end; it more than made up for the storyline. Carlie had to face some really hard decisions and in the end she triumphed.

Halfway Drowned continues a fantastic series filled with witches and the town they’ve vowed to protect. Supernatural foes, tantalizing mysteries, intriguing characters, all come together in an epic tale of love, sacrifice, and another day in Halfway.

They keep getting better and better.

After reading the first three books in the series, I didn’t think it could get any better, but I was wrong. I love the story of Carlie and all of the other people in Halfway. Their stories are as interesting as they are captivating. I warmly recommend this series to fans of paranormal and fantasy.

I laughed out loud when I read the two things above, love the humor in these books.

Carlie is a shorty but she's a force to be reckon with. Wulferic is just delicious in so many ways, you just want your own personal Viking.

You really can't go wrong with reading this series. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll question yourself about everyday life, it gives you the feels of love, family and friends and just add some butt k

Readers of my blog and reviews know I’ve read the first three books of the Halfway Witchy series by Terry Maggert and enjoyed them immensely. When Mr. Maggert released the latest in the series, Halfway Drowned (Halfway Witchy Book 4), it went directly to my TBR list. Here is my review!

Synopsis (from the author): A magical storm. An ancient shipwreck. A hidden evil.
