Publisher's Summary

Some prey bites back.
Welcome to Halfway, where the waffles are golden, the moon is silver, and magic is just around every corner. A century-old curse is broken, releasing Exit Wainwright, an innocent man trapped alone in time. Lost and in danger, he enlists Carlie, Gran, and their magic to find the warlock who sentenced him to a hundred years of darkness. The hunter becomes the hunted when Carlie's spells awaken a cold-blooded killer intent on adding another pelt to their gruesome collection: hers. But the killer has never been to Halfway before, where there are three unbreakable rules.
1. Don't complain about the diner's waffles.
2. Don't break the laws of magic.
3. Never threaten a witch on her home turf.

Can Carlie solve an ancient crime, defeat a ruthless killer, and save the love of her life from a vampire's curse without burning the waffles? Come hunt with Carlie, and answer the call of the wild.

What the Critics Say

“The sarcasm, waffles, magic, and Halfway, NY would not quite be the same without her inflections, timing, cadence, and inflections of warmth, humor, wit, and of course her own flare of magic.” -The Book Junkie
“The author has managed to keep the natural feel of the characters, even if we are in the world of vampires, witches and many other unworldly beings. I finished the entire series in four days.” -Lilly’s Book World
“Each book pulls me in more and more, but it’s really like picking up the phone and calling your best friend happens to be a pretty rad witch and lives an adorable town.” -The Desert Bibliophile

Best one yet.

After the ending of book 2, I dived into this one as soon as I could! I needed to see what happened to Wulfric!!! Well, what a read! I don't want to spoil something so this part of the synopsis sums it up pretty good... "Can Carlie solve an ancient crime, defeat a ruthless killer and save the love of her life from a vampire's curse without burning the waffles?" That's basically what this book is about, but also so much more!! There's Exit, a man stuck in time, a quest to find the warlock and Carlie must try to save Wulfric, all the while trying to stay true to being a white witch!

Once again, the author has created an action packed and addicting read! I loved the addition of Exit in this one. He has been asleep for a centuary do to a spell cast upon him. Now awake, he is eager to find answers and who better to help him than Carlie!! His biggest question is what happened to his wife, Reina!

Poor Carlie. I felt for her in this one. She wants to save everyone, but at what cost? Is love worth turning from the light? Plus she has to deal with questions and secrets coming at her all the time!! Despite this, she is still her sassy and fun self though.

The plot was once again, a doozy!! So much happening and so many twists! It's a book that will grip you from the start and not let go. This book, and indeed, the whole series is a fun, emotional, adventurous read. Halfway is a place where everyone should visit!! Come for the waffles. Stay for the magic.

Again, Erin Spencer did an amazing job with the narration. She has such a pleasant and easy to listen to voice, that the story was effortless to listen to. I love how she portrays Carlie!!

Best book from this series

I liked this book more than the previous two. To be honest, I finished the entire series in 4 days. I’ve read book number one and books number two and three were in audio format. I can say that this last one was the best, mostly because the action did not feel as dragged as in the previous two and also the maturity of the characters is quite visible.

To get a little bit more into the details, the action happens in the same town of Halfway, having Carlie in the center of attention but this time trying to help Exit Wainwright who appears to be a time traveler. This time the action is far more complex and threats raised against her and her loved ones.

Also presented from Carly’s point of view, the plot evolves nicely, in a steady pace, with an increasing amount of suspense. The writing is very natural, the dialogue as well. The author has managed to keep the natural feel of the characters, even if we are in the world of vampires, witches and many other unworldly beings. The atmosphere at the diner is welcoming, all the descriptions and mentioning of it makes it a sanctuary to all the people in Halfway, locals or visitors. I loved how the warmth of this place manages to capture the reader or listener.

The characters have matured enough to show strength and Carly takes some decisions of her own. She can tap into some great magic. She will be faced with many difficult situations in this last book. The complexity of it all will make her a great character.

As for the narrator, I did enjoy her voice; I enjoyed the easy way in which she made everything feel natural. She could really connect with the main character but what I would have wanted is maybe a better way of changing her voice when interpreting some of the other characters.

So without adding too many unnecessary words, I’ll give my 4 stars to book number 3 in the "Halfway Witchy" series. It is the best of the three in my opinion. I’ll be posting my review for the other two books these days so stay around!
