Book Review- Mark of the Witch by Maggie Shayne

Mark of the Witch (The Portal, #1)Mark of the Witch by Maggie Shayne

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

From the very first line of this book (and what a line it was!) I was hooked. I had to know what the dreams meant, then I wanted to see where it was all going. Then I wanted to see what what going on with the Priests… oy.

Compelling paranormal read. You’ll want to devour it in one sitting if possible. Underneath the story line, Mark of the Witch shed some light on the characters own internal struggles with beliefs and religion. It was nice to see alternative beliefs get their due as well. I liked the duality in this novel. Good versus evil, two sides to every story, priests working along side Wiccans.

Overall, Mark of the Witch is well written, flavored with great dialog and interesting characters, and is set up well to flow the story arc into a series.

**I received a copy of this novel via NetGalley for review purposes.***
