Book Review: The Witch's Tears by Katharine and Elizabeth Corr

I couldn't resist rereading The Witch's Tears by Katharine and Elizabeth Corr straight after I finished The Witch's Kiss. It had been a long time since I read this story, and I think knowing how it all ends means I liked it even more. It's worth a read and definitely worth a reread, the story as a whole is excellent.

Can true love's kiss break your heart...? 

It's not easy being a teenage witch. Just ask Merry. She's drowning in textbooks and rules set by the coven; drowning in heartbreak after the loss of Jack.

But Merry's not the only one whose fairy tale is over.

Big brother Leo is falling apart and everything Merry does seems to push him further to the brink. And everything that happens to Leo makes her ache for revenge.

So when strangers offering friendship show them a different path they'd be mad not to take it...

Some rules were made to be broken, right?

5 Words: Family, magic, expectations, evil, love.

Is it a cop out using the same five words as I used for The Witch's Kiss? I'm going to go with no as The Witch's Tears explores a lot of the same themes but does it in a very different way.

I think if anything I love The Witch's Tears even more than the first book. The character development is amazing, and by the end they've changed so much it blows my mind.

I loved how a part of the story is Leo's coming out and acceptance and the exploration of first relationships and how teenage love can so quickly spiral and take over everything. I loved how this added an additional strain to Merry and Leo's relationship as siblings, there was something else to the jealousy and resentment - when your sibling starts a relationship you're kind of left behind and I loved how this was written so much.

In The Witch's Tears there is a lot more witchy drama and exploration of grief - because grief isn't just about death, it's also about the loss of relationships and what has been. I like how it delved deeper into this.

This book has An Ending. I loved how everything was building up to a shocking end, how even though I have read the whole story before I still forgot what happens and was taken by surprise and a left a bit shocked. I got so caught up in everything that happened.

Now on to The Witch’s Blood!
