Actually 3.5 stars. Author has potential.

Buried Magic #1 - My first read by this author. I enjoy witches and the Cornwall area, and this story has both, plus the histories of several of the families trace back past the 1500s. Tie in a couple more magical, or not, families with suspicious agendas, and occult dimensional portals allowing demons passage to White Haven. There are many interesting storylines that do a good job of keeping the reader's interest, along with the premonitions, intrigue

I liked the approach toward the magic of modern-day witches.
It was a real treat to follow the adventures of that family to escape the evil plans of their adversary. There is a good plot with intrigue and suspense and an interesting detective.
it is very easy to get into the life of Avery and the other witches of White Haven. And it is really easy to just keep reading.

I love that the characters are very realistic in there feeling, emotions and beliefs. Avery, Alex, Elspeth, Gil, Gil's wayward brother Reuben and Briar are witches. Their ancestry goes back hundreds of years. Their history is steeped in mystery and secrets. When Avery and Alex have the same warning that darkness and danger is coming. They gather the rest of the witches for a meeting. They are not officially a coven but some of them want to organize one. When, Anne, an elderly historian of the ...more

Good Read

I found this book quite fun to read, and will be moving on to book 2. This book is 3.5 stars for me, but that option is not available to me.
On the upside, I found most of the characters quite interesting and nice. They balance each other out. I like the slow build of the mystery of the 5 grimoires. I was sad at the end of the book at the unexpected turn of events, but can understand it as it provides impetus for one of the characters to embrace the family history and discover what

I love books about magic and witches in particular, so this first book in the White Haven Witches went down like honey, and TJ Green is a great favourite author of mine. The story is situated in Cornwall, in White Haven to be precise and this little village has a history of magic and witchcraft and presently has 5 witches residing there. They all lead normal lives, working in their own particular shops were they sell wares which have been imbued with magic but the magic they wield is good magic, ...more

Magical story. I loved it.

Several magical families have lived in a small village on the coast of Cornwall for generations. Years ago, the families were persecuted for their power, but now the last descendants can practice their magic without being judged for it, and they have small businesses in which they use their power for the benefit of the people. Avery, the protagonist, has a bookstore.

One night, she has a premonition. Something bad is going to happen, and soon. She's

Buried Magic is the first in my new series, and I just loved writing it! I wanted to write something contemporary and still fantastical, so urban fantasy was the way to go. I love magic and witchcraft; it’s a fascinating topic for many reasons. Magic has been with us for thousands of years, and it will be for thousands more I’m sure, as will people’s fascination with witchcraft.

In the 16th and 17th century hundreds of people were persecuted in the belief they were witches, and this is where I

This story is about what happens when a bunch of modern-day witches who just want "to protect people, make them happy, tap into nature, live at one with [their] surroundings" are attacked by a demon out of medieval legend. The setting, a Cornish coastal town rich in folklore, is quite charming. The approach to magic is respectful and traditional, and the hereditary witches have some amazing abilities, especially when they start to get serious. The members of the group are mostly in their late ...more

FANTASTIC READ!!!
Oh my word. Talk about putting some distance between you and bad news. This is one exciting, action packed, fast paced, pulse racing, heart pounding, smooth flowing wonder that grabs our attention as Green brings this bad boy screaming to life and action. You get all the suspense, fear, deceit, betrayal, uncertainty and down right disgust. When push comes to shove don't count the little guy out. That's the only one you find your self trusting. All the twists and turns, ups and

4&1/2 Stars rounded up to 5.
Buried Magic was an engaging, exciting and action packed read. The story is centred on Avery, a white witch, and the small group of other witches in White Haven (an invented town in Cornwall) who slowly become both friends before teaming up to challenge a dark presence that threatens their quiet seaside town. As Avery finds herself falling for Alex, she also starts to uncover secrets of the group's ancestry and the old magic of their past.
A great mix of

This book hits all my spots, magic, living a normal life, researching your history/looking for something hidden and of course, action. The characters are well written and fleshed out, the story flows so well sleep was delayed in order to read the next chapter, and the next, and the next. The ending leaves us with questions that propels us to the next book. Fantasy and history mix to create a world hidden in everyday life.

I just loved this book. Once I started it I could not put it down. The core family witches of White Haven have secrets they don't even know about, and someone is coming for them so they better figure out when they are now!! I just love Avery, and watching her as she dances around Alex is great.You can just feel the tension in the pages of the book. Poor Briar though. I can see her future there though. The twists are all over, and the shocks really

The death of an old lady opens Pandora's box for Avery and her friends, 5 powerful witches who connect with 5 different elements.

A fast paced story full of intriguing twists n turns. I have seldom seen magic, mystery, relations, emotions all weaved so beautifully in a story.

A must read for those who enjoy paranormal fiction.

A fabulous start to a new series. Full of witches, magic, demons and a search for the witch families past. A local historian passes away and leaves Avery a letter and an old rune covered box. This is the start of the search, unfortunately it also brings them to the attention of people who believe they are owed something from the witches of the past. Can’t wait to read the next book. Highly recommend.

A bit frustrating

Nothing was really resolved in this book and it just kind of stopped. Also, a key character died and it was written about with so little feeling and I wondered if I should care because it felt like the author didnt. Maybe these things wil be resolved in the next book; I havent decided if I'm bothered enough to read it.

Great book with good characters and a nail-biting plot. This is a book that is quite hard to review without giving spoilers, but I do recommend reading it. A lot of action and good character building but I was left a bit disappointed by too many loose ends. I would like to read book 2 and I hope it has a more satisfactory conclusion. Knocked off a star for the cliffhanger.

I am not going to give a bunch of details about this book because you have to read it to understand how good it really is. If you like witches, magic, and mystery then get this book and plan on a long night. You will not want to put it down and will be ready for the next one.

Wonderful new series to explore. The White Haven Witches are good witches, that now have to fight demons. Hopefully by digging into their heritage they will find the power they need to defeat the demons. Looking forward to the rest of the series.

I write books about magic and mystery, and myths and legends, and they're action packed!

My YA series, Tom's Arthurian Legacy, is about a teen called Tom and his discovery that he is a descendant of King Arthur. It's a fun-filled clean read with a new twist on the Arthurian tales.

My new series is adult urban fantasy and is called White Haven Witches. It's packed with magic, action, and a little bit
