I have read a lot of controversy around this book... after reading it I find that it's nothing like the people were ranting about. The main character was a sheltered girl who lives in a world of racism and makes friends and breaks down boundaries slowly. The book itself is fast paced and I highly doubt you will find a slow moment in the book.
Only complaint is that she is sometimes very sheltered.

What made the experience of listening to The Black Witch the most enjoyable?
Julia Whelan. She was 50% of the reason I chose to buy this book. Every one of her narrations are fantastic
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Black Witch?
Elloren's awakening. Finding out that your people aren't the great saviors of the world and that everyone in the world doesn't want to be like you. In fact, your people have been murderous monsters and most of the world loathes you.
Which character – as performed by Julia Whelan – was your favorite?
Aerial. She got the crazy down perfectly.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I was holding my breath a few times, scared for them and cheering for them at the same time.
Any additional comments?
People that are freaking out about racism, homophobia and misogyny in this book are totally missing the point.
How could you show the redemption of these characters without first showing the way they were raised and the prejudices they were steeped in. Are bigotry, racism, homophobia and misogyny disgusting? Yes, of course they are, and they were entirely necessary for the story to work.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I wouldn't because of the narration.
Would you be willing to try another book from Laurie Forest? Why or why not?
Yes I am looking forward to wandfasted coming out.
How could the performance have been better?
The narrative was not the best. The accents by the narrator was terrible.I really hate it when fantasy novels are read with American style words like (h)ERBs. It sounds stupid. The American accent just made the main character sound very mean girly/whining that at some points I found very hard to listen too.
Could you see The Black Witch being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?
If it was it would be better played by English actors.
