When it comes to deftly mingling different fiction genres, Paula Brackston is something of a magician herself. The Return of the Witch, the author's sequel to her first book, is a spellbinding story comprised of equal measures of fantasy, time-travel, and history spiced up with a generous dash of danger and suspense. --ReadertoReader.com
