I DNF this book around 53% as it was awful WellThis book sucked It sucked so much that I did something that I have only ever done once with a bookI DNF’d I couldn’t do it I managed about 53% before I had to throw the towel in and accept that this book was not going to get any betterSo let me dive into some of the reasons why I had to put this book down The writing was childish making unbearable to read The main character whose name I have forgotten as she wasn’t memorable was the worst Dull boring pretty much a piece of wood THE WORLDBUILDING SUCKED There was no development You are thrust into it from the moment you start reading HATE THIS SO MUCH Main character pretty much finds out from the very beginning she’s a witch and she’s just like “Ah no okay cool I’ll deal with it” WHAT A 17 year old boy is coming onto her and I swear she’s only 13 Sorry no thanks The plot felt rushed and all over the place I probably could think of tons but I think you get the picture The book felt rushed and the thought process behind it felt as if it lacked any real planningI NEVER WANT TO SEE THIS BOOK AGAIN Unfortunately I had to give this book a 15 on Goodreads but in my opinion it’s a 10000000000

Anger and she must break free The uestion is – who can she trustCarnegie Medal winner Melvin Burgess returns with a powerful thrilling fantasy for young adults about magic myth and following your instinct. What a let down This book is all over the place character and plot wise but also it is HUGELY problematic It should definitely hunt as to the contents in the blurb and probably include trigger warnings though I don’t know too many books that do I am not marking this review for spoilers even though some of it is because I don’t want that to put people off from reading about why it’s problematic Bea is 13 when it starts and it’s a bit middle grade than I was expecting at this point especially given the cover shows a grown woman I actually liked the beginning it’s the only bit I did She begins to realise things aren’t what they seem and also learns to skateboard All good She then meets other witches who straight away tell her at 13 to run away and leave her family and are shocked when she doesn’t want to Wtf It only goes downhill from there She is kidnapped abused and basically develops Stockholm syndrome They have sex which is both rape even if it is consensual it is done after months of abuse and conditioning and paedophilia When she gets away she is treated like it’s all her fault and abused by her mums spirit and put on trial Victim blaming all the way Even though she’s back with the “good guys” at this point it’s basically still conditioning by a different manner They even say she should have known witches “don’t do that” How In the five seconds she had to learn about witches before being taken What the actual And then it ends pretty suddenly With a relatively big reveal about the only character I actually liked and that’s literally it What happened next Where’s everyone realising that Bea was 13 15 through all of this and is trying her best Where’s the authors note suggesting if this was upsetting or sounds familiar maybe talk to people I just can’t get over the problematic nature of basically everything in the book I’ve seen reviews saying Bea isn’t a great character And she’s not in many ways but she is THIRTEEN when kidnapped and everything she knows is basically not true What else should she have done I think she does the best she can with the info she has and the circumstances she’s in TL;DR do NOT read this book

The Lost WitchBea has started to hear and see things that no one else can – creatures voices visions Then strangers visit Bea and tell her she is different she has the rare powers of a witch They warn her she is being. 'The Lost Witch' by Melvin Burgess was a let downSynopsis After an eventful night on the moors with her family Bea is able to see and hear things that no one else can Soon a girl starts talking to her telling her she is special; Bea is a witch Not only that she's in grave danger from The Hunt a group who seek to eradicate all witches The girl tells her to leave her family for their safety and hers but can Bea really leave the only life she's ever known behindThis review is going to be harsh It's my first Burgess novel and it is also the last I found this book very difficult to get into and I blame the scattiness of the prose There were so many unnecessary sentences and exclamation marks that I was half confused the entire length of the story Some parts where explained in length and others probably important parts where glossed over with only a sentence or two How am I supposed to connect with the story if I physically struggle to even readunderstand itI didn't like any of the characters in this book I found Bea so naive and just stupid that I wanted to smack her Her personality and strength of mind doesn't change at all She may as well have been a talking plank of wood None of the other characters are even worth mentioning Also was Burgess high when he wrote this There were so many scenes that where kinda fcked up and just downright bloody weird The man with two faces for instance His face can travel along his whole body WTFThis was 100% a cover buy and it's gone terribly wrong It wasn't at all what I was expecting and I'm actually upset about it I wanted mystery and spells I wanted things to be developed I wanted a MC who had a brain and functioning heart The one thing I can say is that there is a lot of creative imagery in this but I feel like I should commend whatever narcotics Burgess was using instead of the author himself I know this is a brutal review but I really didn't like itIf you want to be yourself you must join us You must put away everything you know everyone you love and you must follow us
