Sophie has been living a ordinary life until her mother drives off a cliff, and they end up in the Faerylands. She finds that she is part faery and part witch. Potentially she is more powerful than either. She becomes a pawn in a power play by the wizard king Maddox. Having three boys via for her love complicates things further. She must decide to whom her heart belongs and learn how to use her powers to protect all she holds dear.
The Faewitch is M. J. Boshers’s first novel and not bad for a first attempt. The Faewitch is is a young adult novel that can also be classified as urban fantasy. The protagonist is Sophia, a young woman who has recently discovered that she isn’t a mortal but a part faery, part witch hybrid. The book is written in the first person. Sophia is a likable young woman, and the adventures are interesting. However, M. J. Boshers changes points of view occasionally through the story. I am not one to consider this a mortal sin in story telling. I have read books that do this that I have liked. However, the few times she does this do not seem to advance the story. The actions scenes were often hard to visualize—too often told rather than shown. One other problem the author faces is that it is hard to keep track of all the characters. While it needs some developing, the story telling does show promise, and I am curious to see how the series unfolds.
