"Bewitching" continues the story of the witch Kendra and retells multiple fairytales. The book begins with her origin story, losing her family to the plague and discovering her magic in her desperation to save her brother. In fear of persecution, they flee and there is a retelling of Hansel and Gretel, which adds a scary veneer. Then it goes to the main story of Emma and Lisette, a retelling of Cinderella. In between their story, Kendra tells of some of her past failures, such as the little mermaid (with the Titanic). All stories are well written and captivating, but it reads more as a series of short stories than one book. I would have preferred to stick with only the story of Emma, which was the most interesting and main story. Regardless, I really loved it and enjoyed the writing style. This could easily be a stand alone. It's a fantastic set of stories and I'm looking forward to the next!
