Summary: In this powerful, lovely sequel to GREEN ANGEL, Green must learn the stories of a number of “witches” and free her true soul mate from a prison as she grapples with life, love, and loss in a post-disaster world.

It still amazes me beyond belief how Alice Hoffman can craft such a perfect novel in little over a hundred pages. GREEN WITCH is haunting, beautiful, and enchanting. To be honest, I had my doubts when starting this book, similar to the doubts I had when I started to read GREEN ANGEL. I questioned the book’s ability to properly execute a plot and develop its characters. But after the first few pages, I was hooked and I knew that I was going to love it.

Hoffman’s writing is simply beautiful. Despite the ugly landscape that Green’s world has been transformed into, Hoffman is able to make it pretty through her use of vivid descriptions and imagery. The story was captivating and all the characters that Green meets along the way are interesting and full of life. The book gives you an appreciation for nature’s beauty and fills you up with hope and determination.

GREEN WITCH is a light and quick read. Fans of GREEN ANGEL will not be disappointed, and for those new to the series, I strongly recommend that you pick up the first book!

  1. I’ve never heard of this book, but it sounds very enchanting. I love books that incorporate a lot of detail, description, and imagery without it taking away from the plot or story. I kind of really want to pick this up now! :)

    Oh, and just a question – did you learn about this book since you intern at Scholastic (which I think is super cool!)?
