A Lost Witch

A Lost Witch by Debora Geary

Hannah Kendrick has spent the last twelve years fighting for her sanity. And the doctor who has stood by her side has run out of options.

A small computer tracking spell will find Hannah—but can Witch Central save her?

It was nice to be back in Witch Central, familiar faces make me feel like I went home. This time the fetching spell caught someone else. Nell was turning it off when she found that it was pulling her in.  Finding out that the witch it was fetching was actually in a mental institution, and she could very well cause more problems for a certain boy witch genius.

Hannah didn't know what her attacks were but she knew that she didn't like them. She would see things, sometimes they would come true. Glimpses of the future, she thought. It scared her, she would see multiple things, death or births.  Having gone in to the institution at 15 she has grown up there, she weaves with her loom and she doesn't meet new people because they trigger her attacks.

One day though she is told that someone has come that could help her live again. Outside of the walls of the institution, and so she goes with Lauren and Tabitha back to Berkeley. They've figured out that if they can clamp off the area in her mind that causes her attacks (precog) then they can help her learn to use her powers.  Hannah has no problem learning shes a witch, I mean she's lived in a mental home for twelve years where she's thought she was crazy. Being a witch is a step up really!

Knowing that this was the last one of this particular series didn't make me want to read it slower and savor it. In fact I couldn't stop reading it. I loved Hannah, even though she thought she was weak she was brave and despite being scared a lot of the time she stood up and followed the directions of the people trying to help her.  The witches in Witch Central took to Hannah as well. She was welcomed by everyone except maybe Nell. I loved Nell in the first few books and then she just got judgy and mean to people not in her inner circle. I understand wanting to protect her family but she did it with the others that the spell fetched except for Lauren.  These books though, they make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.  Watching Hannah's journey and discovery of herself was awesome and I'm hoping you'll want to read it too. This book was a total five stars for me.

Check out all of A Modern Witch Series. You really won't be disappointed!
