Summary

Ivy Wilde, the laziest witch in the West, is still entangled with the Hallowed Order of Magical Enlightenment. That's not a bad thing, however, because it gives her plenty of excuses to spend more time with sapphire-eyed Raphael Winter, her supposed nemesis. And when he comes knocking because he needs her to spy on the latest series of Enchantment, she jumps at the chance.
Hanging around a film set can't be hard - or dangerous - right?

Let down by choice of narrator

What did you like best about Star Witch? What did you like least?

A vast improvement over the first book in the series - the awful Winter turns out to be not as bad as he seemed and finally Does The Right Thing with regard to his misplaced loyalty to H.O.M.E.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Star Witch?

The obstacle course was was a fun scene

Would you be willing to try another one of Tanya Eby’s performances?

Only if she isn't narrating and English character or a book set in the UK with lots of non-American characters.

Any additional comments?

Given how awful the first book was, I was very surprised by how good the story is in this one It is, however, a shame a non-English narrator was selected for this series, as the American accent speaking such English phrases and slang jarred all the way through. She can't do a decent English accent and can't pronounce things the English way either.

I'd advise reading the print version rather than listening to the Audiobook.

Great story, but...

I love this lady's writing. It's well-written, witty and the plots are great. What absolutely killed me with this book was an American reading a book that is set in Oxford. With the previous book I could live with it as she does speak very well. But this book is set in Scotland and for me this Scottish accent was so extremely painful to listen to that I almost gave up on the book. It totally and utterly ruined it. Either get someone to narrate who is from Scotland, or who can do a Scottish accent, but to have an American trying this made the bile rise in my throat. I'm sorry. She's a lovely lady with a great speaking voice and for the rest of the book and the previous one, I could get past the accent. But this was a killer. Please don't do it again.

wonderfully funny, quirky and satisfying

Ivy continues to delight the readers with her antics. Her aversion to anything “Order” related has soften. She goes to Scotland to investigate a suspicious death on the scene of Enchantment, her favorite show. She is star stuck to be in the orbit of her favorite Enchantment stars but pissed that she must work. Her working title is called a runner. After day one, running has given her blisters. Ivy and Winter are not working hand to hand as in book 1. They were released from the spell, which kept them bound.

A round of applause for Helen Harper unique handling of the romance between Ivy and Winter. If you follow my reviews, you know that I identify many of the romances as harlequin. Harlequin romances include the overly dramatic method in which men and women fall in love. There is the pattern of attraction, denial of attraction, passionate kisses, denial of attraction, a lifesaving incident, passionate kisses, and final a declaration of love concluding with the Neanderthal declaration of, my woman/my man.

The romance of Ivy and Winter was lightly referenced in book 1. Their physical attraction consummated with the walk of shame. Their discussion of their tryst was straight forward without the numerous misunderstanding usually featured in romance story lines. Thank the Lord! Harper’s romance for our characters does not supplant the plot. It is a quirky story line without the dramatics or saccharine found in harlequin romances. I enjoyed how our lovers acknowledged their feelings.

Despite the heroism Ivy showed for the “Order” in book 1 and her willingness to save their butts in book 2, the “Order” is still taking advantage of any non-order witches. Winter was not having none of that. Ivy identifies the threat as a zombie while Winter says it is an animated anomaly. If you encounter a dead body, which reentered the world from a grave and has a penchant for blood, is that a zombie?

P.S. Give Helen Harper her kudos for her description of Ivy as a curvy woman!

I LOVE this series!!!

I rarely write actual reviews, but I have to give a shout out to both writer and reader for this one. The plot is twisty enough to entertain without stressing me out. The main character is funny, kind, and above all, intelligent. None of those cringing "why do you suddenly think you don't need help saving the world when you couldn't find your own keys last chapter" moments. I'm looking forward to the third coming out on Audible!
