Magick by Trish Milburn
The covens are coming for her.
But is she a White Witch or a Dark Witch? In a war for control of the witch world, the answer will save-or doom-everyone she loves.
In White Witch, Jax gained friends she'd die for and a staggering power that threatens them all.
In Bane, Jax did the unthinkable and killed a supernatural hunter to protect her friends. She found herself lost in darkness and prisoner to the Bane, a secret society of witches sworn to prevent the use of the dark magic.
Now, in Magick, the powers of Jax and her friend Egan have been magically bound by the Bane. She must convince the Bane she can learn to control her power and become a White Witch in truth. She's their only hope now that the dark covens have called a Conclave with one purpose-to kill this generation's White Witch and anyone who has ever stood with her. If Jax can't amass an army of her own, rebuild the trust of her friends and boyfriend, and find the White Witch's elusive weapon against the dark, it may be too late.
I have a love/hate relationship with Magick. I loved it because it was a great book. I hated it because it meant one of my favorite series was coming to an end. However, if a series has to end, it couldn’t have ended a better way than Magick. The plot had me absolutely captivated and astounded. Most of the plot twists I didn’t see coming at all. When Jax was working on suppressing her dark magic and bringing forth her white witch powers, I was on the edge of my seat. It was very suspenseful. I was excited to learn more about Sarah. I really liked her in Bane, the second novel in the series. Also, it was interesting to learn more about the Bane and Coven history. I love the world that Trish Milburn created. It’s so detailed and wonderfully written. It makes me wish that I lived there. The book has all of the characters that we know and love with a few extras. My favorite new character is Sean. At first, he was an evil villain. However, he ended up redeeming himself and becoming a great character. I wish that the author went into more detail about the new characters. I’m hoping that she writes a spin-off series about the gang’s time in high school. Either that, or about hunting witches around the world.
I give Magick: 5/5.
