35145741Ethan Sutcliff seems like a normal seventeen-year-old—at least that’s what he’s trying to portray. In a secret society run by the Supernaturals, Ethan is what witches call a Bender. Benders are Witches’ Guardians, who are able to control a witches’ ability, bend it, or move it away from harming humans. In Ethan’s case, he is able to bend the Earth element. But at the age of fifteen, he lost all connection to it, and the reasons behind it could only mean one of two things: His Wielder is either dead, or hiding out somewhere.

Alex Burgendorf has been living in her aunt’s locket for the past sixteen years with her mother—a Fire Wielder, and her father—a Water Wielder. For sixteen years, her parents vowed to protect her, and they have, as she is the last Earth wielding witch. However, time is running out. Alex must find her Bender, or the fate of the Supernaturals might be at stake.

The Corner Store Witch, H. D. Lynn – Book Review

1459165497497

31550666The Chronicles of Narnia but with more swearing, more katanas, and less allegory. It’s nerdy, anime inspired fun for the whole family.

Leone owns Pulp Magic (Comics, Books, Games, & More). Angry customers are her biggest concern-until a man from another world literally drops into her shop. And oni have followed him. Leone defends herself with a magical staff, which marks her with powerful runes. Her supernatural tattoo sleeves make her desperately thirsty, yet practically allergic to water-and oh, they foretell the fate of the realms of demons, gods, and men.

With her four friends and inter-dimensional guide, Leone travels to the realm of the gods, searching for magical cosmetic surgery. She doesn’t want to carry the fate of the world literally on her arms. But the truth she finds-of a war raging between worlds-changes her, challenges her.

What’s a nerd to do with the fate of all worlds at stake? Ah yes, kick some demon ass.

*Review copy provided via Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. The views are entirely my own and in no way biased.*

The Corner Store Witch is a must read if you’re into fantasy. This book has a huge element of Dungeons & Dragons and cosplaying and nerdcons and the like, so you should also pick it up if you’re into that sort of thing.

I like that the book is so diverse. There are all these different kinds of characters. Black, disabled. They’re there. It’s something that I hugely appreciate. It’s not always we get to read about all these characters together in one novel. It’s a little different and that makes it so much better.

The story is fascinating and fast paced. It also pretty action packed. So, there’s twists and turns and anticipation of what is going to happen next throughout the entire story. There is no point in the story where you’ll get bored because the other shoe is always waiting to drop, so to say. Which is nice.

I don’t know if this is a good thing or bad thing, but the romance in this story is absolutely zero. Going into a book where the main characters are around 23 – 25 years of age, one would expect a romantic angle, even if it doesn’t form the main crux of the story. But, here, Leone and Abinar only shared an easy friendship and nothing more. Maybe that’ll change in the coming books, but it hasn’t happened yet, so I don’t know. I mean, I was definitely expecting some sort of romance, but was surprised that there wasn’t any. Still haven’t decided whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing.

The characters are great. Though, I think that there’s room for development because there’s glimpses of these characters which tells that they have so much more to say than what has been conveyed till now, but we have more books coming, so I’m not that worried about it. The wroldbuilding is also great!

So, all in all, this story is definitely worth your time. If you like fantasy with lots of plot and action, and little romance, please go read this!
