The Midnight Witch

Review
This is a great thrilling book for you lovers of paranormal adventures filled with witches and fully enveloped in exploration of the afterlife. If you had a simple drink that could bring people back to life, what would you do to get a hold of it. Would you want to use it on a loved one or an old pet? Possibly you would revive one of the great leaders of history like George Washington. If you were a good witch, you would guard this drink from people who would use it for evil purposes like taking over the world. Enter Lilith, the guardian of this elixir.

What is great about this book, is that you get all of the great elements of a well developed witch coven story, with a few new fresh twists to keep it new and exciting. Specifically the ideas of reanimation are what fascinated me the most in the story. I would not imagine being Lilith with the daunting task of guarding an elixir with so much power that so many people want. I would not want that responsibility, especially when leading a double life where you are sworn to secrecy. This book has everything that great literature needs. Awesome characters, an interesting plot line, and a great
intertwining of the real world and the supernatural.
