La visione di Mary Newbury sola nella neve distrutta dal freddo. La visione di una ragazza che visse nel 1600, di una ragazza la cui vita è stata segnata dal rifiuto delle convenzioni e delle norme, e che ha deciso di amare, essere indipendente, vivere in maniera autonoma in un'epoca in cui farlo equivaleva a essere considerata una strega. Più di quattrocento anni separano le esistenze di Mary e di Agnes, ma esse sono legate in maniera inscindibile da qualcosa di più forte del sangue: come Mary, Agnes ha un potere speciale ed è su questo potere che Mary si basa per raccontare la propria storia.

Sorceress didn't live up to Witch Child for me. It picks up where Witch Child leaves off except the book starts with a modern day girl who has visions from Mary (Witch Child diarist). I didn't think it was very effective because I didn't care about the modern story and the modern characters were now Leggi tutto
My Mary and Jaybird : ) .... "Sorceress" is the sequel to "Witch Child" and the continuation of Mary Newbury's story. In "Sorceress" we follow Mary, who's recently been forced to flee from the Puritan settlement Beulah, and who's saved from certain death by Jaybird, a young Native American man, who w Leggi tutto
I wasn't thrilled with the first 100 pages, but what a turn right on Page 101. It's like reading two different books. From Page 100 onward, I was immersed in a great adventure, and while the book as a whole wasn't as strong from beginning to end as With Child (prequel), the adventure that takes plac Leggi tutto
I really loved Witch Child, but the climax of that story was supposed to be wrapped up here, in its sequel. It wasn't. At least not in the normal way of a sequel. First, it took nearly 100 pages to even get back to Mary's story, which was an incredibly frustrating wait. The story of the historian wh Leggi tutto
A great follow up to Witch Child, I was happy to continue reading Mary's story and in a fun way! The ending was slightly lack luster though, causing me to remove one star from the rating.
Wow. This was amazing. I was so happy that there was a sequel to "Witch Child", and it didn't disappoint. It was a bit sad a some points; I admit I cried when Mary's daughter died, and then when Jaybird died, but I admired how Mary was able to go on. The only reason I didn't rate the book five stars Leggi tutto
This is the continuation of "Whitch Child" as seen though one of Mary's descendants. I didn't find this book as gripping as the first, but I'm not sure why. It's quite a different story, as she makes her home with a Native American clan. It shows the huge diffence between how the Natives treated her Leggi tutto
In sorceress readers follow the story of Mary Newbury now she has left her people behind and been taken in by Native Americans. She carves a life for herself, finds love, peace and a sense of belonging but these are times of war and when danger looms she is forced to leave with her new people. Cleverl Leggi tutto
One of my favorite YAs I have read in a long time :)
Didn't enjoy this as much as Witch Child. It was good but got rather fanciful at times.
