The Mist-Torn Witches - Barb Hendee *Genre* High Fantasy*Rating* 4.0*My Thoughts*The Mist-Torn Witches is set in the same world as Barb Hendee’s Noble Dead series which I have read and enjoyed tremendously. The story itself centers around sisters Céline and Amelie Fawe. Living in the western region of Droevinka, Celine runs an apothecary shop and is able to cast spells to stop bad dreams, or ease the pain of unrequited love. She is also a seer like her mother which surprises her since she has always faked her ability until seeing something that staggers her and forces her into taking action. Amelie wields a sword, is feisty, determined, spirited, and also has a unique ability. I’m a fan of high fantasy novels which was why I dived right into this book without any problems. I was able to enjoy Céline and Amelie Fawe’s adventure without wanting to run the other way screaming about uninteresting characters and their ability to get into difficult situations. I also appreciated the familial aspect of the story in that the sisters would do anything to protect the other.I also enjoyed the world building as well as the mystery and suspense that are brought about after Céline and Amelie are forced on the run after their house is burned down, and are chosen by Lieutenant Jaromir to help out at Prince Anton’s castle where things aren’t exactly as they seem. This is where things really pick up, including a few possible romantic interludes that find their way into the sister’s lives.I’m eagerly awaiting the sequel called Witches In Red (May 2014) and I’m thankful to the publisher (ROC) for sending me a copy of this book. I also apologize for my lack of writing a full length review until now. Thank you so much for your patience!*Recvd from Publisher* Published: May 7th 2013 by Roc
