Deep in the forests of Central Oregon is a town called Dark Root, a town with a history of magic, mystery, and witchcraft.
But for twenty-year-old Maggie Maddock, Dark Root is also a prison, a place where she is forced to work in her mother's Magick Shoppe while the rest of the world moves forward without her. When a mysterious stranger arrives in town and offers to take Maggie away from it all, she jumps at the chance.
Seven years have passed and Maggie is called back to Dark Root by her beloved older sister. Once home she is confronted with a mysteriously ill mother, a renewed sibling rivalry, and a town that's lost it's literal magic. Now Maggie must decide if she will use her newfound powers to aid those she loves, or run from her responsibilities once again. Part Practical Magic, part Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, The Witches of Dark Root is a story about family, forgiveness, and the healing power of love that will leave readers believing in magic long after the story ends
Review by Stormi
I found this book on Facebook. I kept seeing it advertised and finally checked it out. I realized it was on Kindle Unlimited and so I grabbed it. I'm so glad I did too!
I really loved this book. I have always loved reading books about witches and this one did not let me down. It wasn't your typical witch book either. There is a back story to all the witches that you don't usually see in books similar to this. The characters seem so real. Many witch books are so crazy its hard to believe in them or the story, but this one was more real. It has the ability to make you feel, to believe in the unknown. At least that's what it did for me. This story was a story of family, of finding yourself, of hope, and of fear. It had a little bit of everything that makes a book great. And the ending was just WOW!
The writing was good and the story was great. I gave this book 5 stars, but if I could I would give it 10. Yes! It's that good! I,m glad I found this book and am now a big fan of this author. I'm definitely looking forward to reading book 2 in The Daughters of Dark Root series.
