review 1: This is an unusual book about witches, in that the main character is a male witch - something you don't usually see in "paranormal" books. And when there is a male witch character he's often cast as a bad guy.In this case the protagonist, Proctor Brown is a decidely GOOD witch, although he doesn't really know much about his talents, or how to use them, because his Mother, from whom his talents come doesn't want him to use them so won't teach him anything.To complicate matters further, Proctor is a colonist in the brand new America, who's militia is fighting the Redcoats for their autonomy from the King.This book is a great combination of paranormal, historical fiction, and history. It has well-written, likeable good characters, and nasty bad characters that you can boo wit... moreh abandon. The story is very exciting and moves along a a great pace, carrying you along ruthlessly to the end to find out what happens.I like the character of Proctor very much, and intend to pick up the next two books in this series - A Spell for the Revolution, and The Demon Recoat - for sure.I highly recommend this book. It's a great read!
review 2: Fairly entertaining first of 3 novels detailing the exploits and adventures of a male witch during the American Revolution. Some parts seem a little rushed or anti-climatic but there are others where you can see some pretty decent writing. Some scenes are pretty graphic, but the build up to the violence seems uninteresting - it's hard to explain what I mean exactly but scenes where something intense and story changing occurs just seem to happen without a whole lot of 'uummph'. Fun and quick to read however, I'll probably read the other two. less

I liked this book A LOT more than I expected to. It is a fun read if a bit grusome at points.
Read from 5/24 to 5/29.
