Review of ‘The Witch’s Kiss’

Posted on Updated on

The genie of Alghabra is owned by the ugly witch, Ezemelda. When the witch is called to the castle of King Nruk to celebrate the coming of age of his daughter, Ezemelda makes a deal with the king to reverse a curse upon his daughter. But, the cost of her magic is visited not just on the king, but upon the genie as well.

The Witch’s Kiss by Antara Man is an entertaining and intriguing short book that demonstrates that appearances are not always what they seem, and illustrates the danger of making a deal that seems too good to be true.

Man does a masterful job in a few words of creating memorable characters and a charming tale that you will want to read again and again for the wisdom that unfolds, and it will leave you wondering what dangers lie in store for the transformed Ezemelda (I won’t spoil the story by telling you how she transforms) and the genie who ends up freed from his lamp for the first time in centuries.

I give The Witch’s Kiss four stars.
