Witch Watch by Sibéal Pounder


Goodreads: Witch Watch
Series: Witch Wars #3
Source: Library
Published: 2016


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.

    These witches sound like dementors from HP. Both suck out colors (metaphorically)from life, it seems. The cover is super cute though.

      The weird thing is, the color is not explained much. Apparently witches used to be colorless in the human world. Some bunch of wicked witches too the color so they could live with humans and blend in. Makes no sense, but that is the point, I think.

      Also unexplained is how a world of only witches procreates. There are no wizards!

    Kudos of a quality mid-series review, Krysta! I always struggle to write reviews for mid-series books which feel meaningful. It’s hard not to give too much away while still making thoughtful points on the text.

    I’ve never heard of this series before (though I’m sure there are reviews of the earlier books in this series elsewhere on your site…). How do you typically find new MG books to pick up? I always struggle…


    • Krysta says:

      Yeah, middle books can be difficult because they might be sort of like the other books in regards to what I want to write. And I think fewer people are invested in the reviews if they aren’t reading the series, too.

      I think I found this series because Briana recommended it to me. But usually I just go to the library and pick up stuff that looks quirky and fun!
