Summary A Pinch of Magic A Pinch of Magic #1 108 TeWill they be enough to break the curseOr will they lead the sisters even deeper into danger Th. A Pinch of Magic is a story of sisters a curse and maybe a pinch of magic Widdershin sisters Fliss Betty and Charlie are the latest in a long line of Widdershin women to be cursed to never leave their home island or else they ll be dead by sundown But Betty longs for adventure and a way to escape her boring life by breaking the curse So when the girls are gifted with some family heirlooms in the shape of a mysterious travelling bag a set of wooden dolls and an old mirror Betty decides to take matters into her own hands and seek out the knowledge of a prisoner who seems to know the answer to breaking the curseI loved the sister s familial bond in this Although all three have strong personalities they bounce off each other well showing genuine affection and warmth for each other Charlie the youngest sister was a personal favourite with her love of animals and food As was the formidable Granny Widdershin who could knock a fully grown man out with her travelling bag before setting up camp back behind the bar of the Poachers Pocket Inn Blunt and direct she can put anyone in their place with one sharp word but she loves her granddaughters than anything and would stop at nothing to protect them Colton is another great addition to the cast as he s uieter and thoughtful than the girls with a harsh and unfair backstory that warms his character to the reader You get a good feel for the reasons behind his desperate actions and just how brave he really is I also really liked the world building Set primarily on large island surrounded by three smaller ones named Lament Torment and Repent it feels atmospheric and full of tension that lends itself well to the high stakes story The world building is good with plenty of descriptions to give colour to the island and help set the scene of a stormy and hostile environment I also particularly liked the chapters dedicated to Sorcha s story and the clever way it was interwoven into the current storyline that made it feel like a magical fairytaleThat said this wasn t perfect for me The story overall feels rather predictable and the ending itself is also a little too neat for me I understand I m not the target audience and I m sure younger readers would be totally satisfied by the conclusion but I just found myself feeling like this lacked a little extra spark of something differentNonetheless this is a lovely story about sisters love and adventure set in a well developed world
