As a child, books were my constant companion. I've always loved to read, but I didn't start writing until I was twelve. I've had two books published with Harlequin under the name Kasi Blake, but YA books are my favorites. I never outgrew them.
I teach kindergarten thru 2nd grade at a private school, and I reside in Missouri with my two cats, Blanca and Gracie Bear.

This is the second book in the Witch-Game series. The story offers up some interesting characters and an even more interesting game. It wasn’t until the end that a connection to the first book was made. I liked reading this book because you didn’t have to read the first one to enjoy it.
So, I’ve been thinking for a few days about this book and why I liked it. First of all, the game itself was an interesting concept. It was kind of a cat and mouse kind of game but in this instance it was “Fox” and “Hound”. It was a different game than the one in Crushed. It was a little more detailed and if you weren’t paying attention to the rules you might miss something. There were twists, turns, and a little bit of mystery in the plot. I really liked it because one of the characters had a touch of Nancy Drew flair to her. Starr was a nosy, pushy, get the story at all costs kind of girl. She didn’t care if there was danger involved. She just wanted the facts that led to the story. The characters were well written. They were exactly what the story needed in order for the plot to unfurl the way it did. There was a bit of a romance but it didn’t over power the story. I rather liked that the mystery and intrigue was driving this story.
I read Crushed which made me decide to give this book a read. I do like the writing style of KC Blake. She tells a good story and knows how to keep a captive audience. She gives just enough detail to hold the interest of the reader but doesn’t give it all the way so that the reader wants to keep reading. I also like that in this series we are not following up on characters but the story focuses on a new game with new characters for the reader to know. So even though this is a series it is also stand alone. Brilliant!!
What it comes down to is if I would recommend this book. My answer is yes. It has great characters, a little bit of romance, some mystery, and an interesting game. It’s a total package. So add it to the summer reading list and go on a Witch Hunt.
