Goodreads: Witch Watch
Series: Witch Wars #3
Tiga Whicabim has been enjoying life in Sinkville’s Ritzy City, but now color is creeping back and it can only mean one thing. The evil witches who once removed themselves to the human world are back! Can Tiga and her friends locate the evil witches in time? Can they save Sinkville? And what does a slug with a beehive hairdo have to do with all of this?
“Mavis had recently expanded her jam stall to include jam and cats. A fact Nottie, the only other jam and cats stall owner was, frankly, livid about.”
Sibéal Pounder brings her signature absurd humor to the third installment of the Witch Wars series. Tiga is now living in the glamorous Ritzy City, located in Sinkville, a world beyond the pipes where witches reside. Sinkville has lacked color ever since a number of evil witches took it with them to the world above. But now color is returning and Tiga’s search for her mother is put on hold as she tries to determine why. Wacky adventure ensues as Tiga and her friends take on the most evil witches yet!
I have to admit, however, that, even though Sinkville’s most notorious witch has returned, Tiga and her friends have possibly the easiest time ever defeating her. The plot moves too quickly for much to happen and the villain is overcome in mere pages. Readers hoping for drama will be disappointed. The book’s strongest parts contain Pounder’s humor, including the magazine excerpts from an organization of panicked witches.
Fans of the Witch War series will undoubtedly like this book–after all, they’ve already made it through two others! However, it is not the strongest book in the series. The first one is. And it’s always disappointing when a sequel does not live up to its predecessor.
