The Last Windwitch by Jennifer Adam was an Advance Reader’s Copy from NetGalley. It is a Middle Grade fantasy novel. It releases in April, 2021.
This middle grade novel is bloody brilliant. There is no other truly accurate description for this reading experience. For younger readers and older readers alike, this novel is a joy to read.
The story is set in a world where magic exists on the fringes, tightly controlled and viewed with suspicion. Brida was the abandoned baby being raised by the local hedge witch and she is training to take up the mantle someday.
This is a brilliant middle grade read that will challenge the reader while providing an engaging and fun fantasy story. There is nothing the average parent will find objectionable in the story. There is character growth and world building that more than would allow for another book set in the same world if the author wanted.
Five stars out of five stars for an engaging read that even adults will lose themselves in with ease.
