The Witch's Daughter | Paula Brackston
post image

This is a ⭐️⭐️⭐️ with some caveats. I enjoyed the story, but have to highlight some problematic content.

The author identifies the main character as Wiccan, a real religion, in the modern day chapters, but then throws every witch cliche and stereotype at the reader. The tone and blending of fantasy under the name of Wiccan (and weird Satanic elements) highlighted how little the author researched Wicca.

rsteve388 Grrr as a pagan this is very frustrating. Damn do your research like hiw hard is it?! Wicca is a real faith and deserves the same respect you give to Christianity. 2mo

julesG Oh no, another book with too little research by Brackston?! 2mo
4thhouseontheleft @rsteve388 it‘s a weird set up, she should have left Wicca out of it completely and just kept it a fantasy witch story. While she did incorporate some hedge witchcraft into the story nicely, there were other aspects really stereotyped. I‘m agnostic, but our home blends Judaism (hubby‘s religion) and pagan beliefs into our own unique version of spirituality. 2mo
4thhouseontheleft @julesG So, this is a common theme with her books? 😕 2mo
julesG I read the new time travel series book 1 and part of book 2. Was annoyed at the historical inaccuracies and blatant mistakes a time traveller to a defined point in time would not make. 2mo
4thhouseontheleft @sprainedbrain It is! And I just realized I hit the wrong button last night, this is a so-so, not a pick. Oops! 2mo
4thhouseontheleft @julesG I'll probably read the sequel to this one during #screamathon since it does get better reviews, but I'm not jumping to pick up any of her other books at the moment. 2mo
Caroline2 Oh no how disappointing! Hmm, I may bail on this one...she‘s got one more chance with me tonight...! 🤨 2mo
4thhouseontheleft @Caroline2 The sequel gets better reviews, so I‘m willing to give it a try. 2mo
