Publisher's Summary

With great power comes great responsibility. So says the tradition of witching. One teenage witch missed that lesson....
As a child, Sierra Brighton traveled the world. She swam with the baby whales, danced in storm funnels, and lived in complete magical freedom. And then Momma died and Sierra ended up in foster care, an unhappy and very secret witch.
Fetched by Nell's spell, she'll no longer need to do magic on lonely beaches - but can Sierra learn to use her power safely? Or will her reckless blood put Witch Central at risk?
A Reckless Witch is book three in the top-rated A Modern Witch series. While each book tells a complete story, you'll enjoy the characters far more if you start at the beginning of the series.

Orphaned Witch Needs a New Home

If you could sum up A Reckless Witch in three words, what would they be?

Heartbreaking - Hopeful - Loving

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Reckless Witch?

We are back in America and meet Sierra Brighton, an orphaned teenager who uses her magical powers to dance with the ocean - yes, the water itself. Ms. Geary pulled me into the scene (and the book) with her wonderful writing. I felt like I was there with Sierra enjoying the freedom and happiness of this magical dance. This is especially noteworthy since I cannot swim - what a wonderful "experience" for me! Thanks also to Ms. Pardee for another outstanding narration!

Which character – as performed by Martha Harmon Pardee – was your favorite?

Sierra is a very sympathetic orphan who is the perfect mix of tough-as-nails versus broken little girl character. Ms. Geary did a fabulous job developing her for this story. The three twin girls work lovingly with Sierra and I enjoyed these scenes very much. Aervyn still owns my heart. When he grows up, I want to marry him.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, in fact I did listen to this book until its completion at 1 am in the morning - on a work night.

Any additional comments?

The book is about a young girl who loses her mother and has to hide her witchy talents while being placed in various foster care homes for six years. It is a lonely existence, but she seems to fair better than most in this system. However, she is about to turn 18 and will be kicked out of foster care at that time. Nell's wonderful witch-finder spell finds Sierra in the nick of time and that is where the magic truly begins. While there is much laughter and happiness in this story, it also had some heart-rending moments to it. (Not bad enough to make me cry though.) The story also has some world-wide implications which were a pleasant, yet well thought-out surprise. Well done, Ms. Geary! There is a bonus feature to this book - A Witch Central Wedding was added to the end in it's entirety. It is an item that you pay for separately on Amazon, so I was thrilled to get this little bonus here. Thank you very much for that little present.Lastly, when I looked on Amazon to get Sierra's last name (Brighton), I was pleasantly surprised to see that there are more books in this series that are not available on Audible. So if you enjoy this series as much as I do, please look for the rest of the series there. Audible, PLEASE bring the rest of the audio books in this series to your offerings. I'd really enjoy being able to hear them narrated as well as reading them on my Kindle. Thank you!

Just Can't Get Enough of these Wonderful People!!!

If you could sum up A Reckless Witch in three words, what would they be?

Joyful, Sad, Healing... These stories don't just tell of the joys and struggles of being a witch, but of everyday experiences felt by all of people-kind. I simply love the community and caring that is expressed in these stories.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Reckless Witch?

When Sierra recognizes that she is no longer alone. Without ruining the story for a new reader, the love and caring and inclusiveness that the folks at Witch Central give to Sierra is wonderful. All of these stories pull at the heart-strings...

Have you listened to any of Martha Harmon Pardee’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes I have and I absolutely Love Martha Harmon Pardee! I'm hoping Audible continues to bring Debora Geary's books to audible life, and sincerely hope Martha will be the performer. I so enjoy the personality her voice changes brings to the different characters.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There are a number of them... There are moments of happiness and fun. Moments of sorrow and deep sadness. Healing... and Joy... I don't want to ruin the surprise for anyone. Just know that you will be moved...

Any additional comments?

I really, really do hope Audible makes the rest of Debora's books available, again with Martha as the performer. I'd order all of them in a split second. I really don't want these stories to end.
