What I Thought
You know when a book has Gods, witches, dwarves and all sorts of magical and mythical creatures in it, I’m going to be on the sidelines cheering it on.
The 13th Witch is the first book in the Conrad Clarke series and after reading it I am looking forward to the next book. It’s not a long book but it’s still loaded without being overwhelming. Conrad an ex-RAF guy gets himself involved with Odin or the Allfather as he calls himself. Conrad isn’t entirely sure what he is getting himself into and I kinda love how laid back he is about it all. I think part of it is he believes he might have a brain injury from a previous trauma so doesn’t for sure know if he’s just having delusions, but he soon discovers that his brain is fine and its all very real.
I like Conrad he takes no shit and doesn’t let anyone get him down (even though they all give it a fair go) he just gets on with it. He’s been given a task and he’ll see it through to the end no matter the cost. A young witch’s life is on the line and to him, witch or not, saving her is all that matters. I like how he teamed up with Vicky and I look forward to seeing what adventures they get up to next, and with references to Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, whats not to love?
Again many thanks to Anne and PawPress for having me on the tour, all opinions are my own and I am not paid to give them.
