I have been longing for a new world to get lost in and have finally found it! This was an excellent introduction to the world and series. It is technically a prequel but at 235 pages it's no tiny novella. The story grabbed me from the first sentence and held me through the very end. I cannot wait to read The Black Witch, but I am heartbroken that Vale and Tessla aren't the focus of the main books because I love them so much.

Again, Laurie Forest nails it with this prequel to “The Black Witch”. Written and best read after reading “The Black Witch”. It is the story of Elloren‘s grandmother and parents. It also includes Gareth‘s parents and a certain professor we know from the first book. This is the story of how the black witch conquered Kelt rule. When one countries despotism is quashed, another rises.

I went on a bit of a book hangover after finishing The Iron Flower. I couldn't bring myself to jump in to another world just yet. So back to Gardneria I go to read about what happened before The Black Witch.

Wandfasted is the prequel to The Black Witch - a book I couldn't put down. I've decided I'll read it and Light Mage just before I read Iron Flower, so that I'm immersed in that world again. I also thought I'd include my #wand according to Pottermore. #witchyreads

GondorGirl I loved this novella so much! 😍 1y
booksandsympathy @GondorGirl I'm so glad to hear that. I've heard nothing really about it. 1y
GondorGirl @booksandsympathy I thought it was a really great story, with a lot of insight into the world. I'm half way through the other novella right now and it's equally as good (though I'm pretty sure it's going to end horribly! ). 1y
booksandsympathy @GondorGirl Oh no! I hate that sinking feeling when reading a book. 1y
Linsy I need to read both! ♥️ 1y

Omg I am such a moron ROFL
I didn't connect this Gareth or Vivianne or Tesla's brother to them in The Black Witch the first time I read it! So many dots connected!

Intriguing. I‘m docking it half a star for typos/general editing and another half star for continuity, but then full marks must be given for a clever title, beautiful cover and a nice usage of names. Good storytelling, easy reading and a man who knows when to make a good cup of tea. I say Slainte to that! 4.5 🌟

This novella is a prequel to 'The Black Witch' and was an amazing addition to the series. It tells the story of how Ren's parents meet and become wandfasted. It's interesting to see a little more of how magic works and a bit more of the politics of the world. If you've read 'The Black Witch' you should definitely spend the 3$ to buy this ebook. It's worth it.

💜💙 The storytelling here is, once again, excellent! The characters are well developed (I adore Fain!) and the plot provides much appreciated context for the​ Black Witch while also being good enough to stand on it‘s own. With Laurie Forest‘s amazing writing talent it‘s only gonna get better from here and I am so excited to see where this series goes! Two super enthusiastic thumbs up!! 💙💜

398.2 Sounds good :) 3y

Holy crap! How is Forest a newbie author?!
This book starts out with a bang...like dragons fighting a witch trying to stop a genocide type bang!

While the characters and plots are not unique (there's some good fluff romance), Forest does an amazing job of showing how we tend to repeat history by using hate to guide our actions. They also bring up so many modern issues: homophobia, access to healthcare, sexism, gender roles and racism.

READ IT!

BellaJourney I definitely will! Thx for updating me on that, pretty exciting! @SassenachTheBookWizard 3y
Frenican Is this Ya or adult? 3y

SassenachTheBookWizard @Frenican it walks the line between Ya and New Adult but it's more YA 3y
rjsthumbelina Have you read the black witch, that it's a prequel to? It's on my shelf but I haven't gotten there yet. It sounds so good, though! 3y
SassenachTheBookWizard @rjsthumbelina I did and it's so amazing. There's so much BS controversy around it from ppl that didn't read it! It's got so many important issues wrapped into it. I'm gonna reread it soon 3y
decorating.reader Well I'm intrigued! This cover is gorgeous! 3y

Literally can't put into words how excited I am for this!! 😄😁 Black Witch is absolutely one of the best books I have ever read so I have been dying for Wandfasted! Not sure how I'll make it til book two is available lol. 💖💖💖

398.2 I just added The Black Witch to my stack because of your review. Sounds good. 😀 3y
Joelene Awesome! 😁 It's a very controversial book apparently. Don't let the Goodreads rating sway u, it's a result of one blogger's review and ppl who follow her rated the book based on her opinion without even reading it 3y
Joelene It's had an overwhelmingly positive response from the majority of those who have actually read it. It tackles some pretty difficult issues and there were parts that were hard for me to read (seriously, ALL the feels!) 3y
See All 6 Comments
Joelene But it has a very clear message that's both timely and relevant to our society today. The blogger in question missed that part entirely, in her apparent rush to be offended by anything and everything, in order to prove her "morality" to the world via social media. And her minions apparently felt the need to validate their own morality by rating a book they didn't read in an attempt to force a boycott of sorts. 3y
Joelene Lol as u can tell the whole situation irks me to no end (and I've accidentally hit the send button too early a few times lol). The hypocrisy of it all is so ironic, u will see how when u read it. Ok I'm off my soap box now lol I hope u enjoy it as much as I did! 😊😊😊 3y
Joelene Side note: Wandfasted is actually a full length prequel and only $2.99! How great is that?! 3y
