Goodreads Book Description:
Can true love's kiss break your heart...? The spellbinding sequel to The Witch’s Kiss by authors and sisters, Katharine and Elizabeth Corr. It's not easy being a teenage witch. Just ask Merry. She's drowning in textbooks and rules set by the coven; drowning in heartbreak after the loss of Jack. But Merry's not the only one whose fairy tale is over. Big brother Leo is falling apart and everything Merry does seems to push him further to the brink. And everything that happens to Leo makes her ache for revenge. So when strangers offering friendship show them a different path they'd be mad not to take it...Some rules were made to be broken, right?

My Review:
The darkly magical sequel to The Witch’s Kiss burns wickedly bright.

Thank you to the ever-lovely Katharine and Elizabeth Corr for sending me an ARC of The Witch’s Tears to read and review! I am so honoured to have been on this journey with you both and support you in your future writing endeavours.


So I read the first book in this series and was left in a completely heartbroken, emotional coma. I was in complete and utter denial after Jack and Merry’s sacrifice, I didn’t want to believe that it had ended.

The Witch’s Tears picks up three months later, Merry and Leo’s grandmother is kidnapped – the investigation of this mysterious disappearance is the main focus of the book. The coven won’t allow Merry to help her find Gran so she decides to do some investigative work of her own.

In the midst of the madness, we are introduced to two new characters, Finn who is a wizard and wants to help Merry find her Gran in order to help his brother who is under a spell of sorts. Ronan is quite unknown in the beginning, a complete stranger who saves Merry from being attacked by some mystical creature.

There’s more involvement of Leo, Merry’s brother, he’s grieving and trying to come to terms with the past events. We see his interactions with Ronan, how he falls for this mysterious man and how Ronan understands what it’s like to be the only human surrounded by those who wield magic.
It was wonderful to see more of Leo, his sibling relationship with Merry and how frustrating it can be for him to not be able to help in those situations that require magic.

The character development of Leo and Merry, in particular their relationship was beautiful and heart wrenching. All I wanted to do was hug them, help them through their grief and bring them together again as a happy family.
The ending absolutely killed me (again) like WHYYYY NOT ANOTHER CLIFFHANGER UGH YOU CAN’T DO THIS TO ME AGAIN

If you haven’t read the first book, The Witch’s Kiss, I highly recommend picking it up and following the story of Merry as she struggles to contain her powers.
