The following is an honest review of The Nature of Witches and my suggested age rating.
Unlike other witches, Clara is an Everwitch whose magic is tied to every season. The other witches have a specific season tied to them depending on when they were born. For centuries these witches have been able to control the climate to prevent disaster. Due to changes in the atmosphere, they need Clara to help take control again before the world erupts into chaos. Throughout the seasons Clara’s relationship with magic changes. In Autumn she longes to be powerless. In Winter Clara has no other choice but to accept the fact that she is the only one that can save them. In Spring she falls for Sang a Spring, the witch that is training her. Faced with worries about losing Sang, Clara knows she must pull away from him. In Summer Clara faces with the decision she’s been dreading, she must choose between her magic or her happiness.
Review of The Nature of Witches
This is a beautiful moody read perfect for anytime of the year. I love love loved the writing in this book. If you follow us on instagram you would know that I am now Rachel Griffin’s biggest fan haha. She is so talented and writes these lyrical descriptions of everything without it seeming overwhelming. If I’m being honest with you, the fact that THE Adrienne Young liked this book definitely influenced my decision a bit on reading this.
I could talk about Clara and Sang for HOURS. They were so adorable. I can’t even. In my personal opinion I really enjoyed the slow burn of it because that made it seem more realistic to me. Clara had to put herself first and get through her struggles before she even thought about her feelings for Sang. I don’t know if you could classify this as friends to lovers since there was chemistry from the start but I’d still say its friends to lovers. Ah, they were just so perfect! Sang with his botany and drawings was so cute.
I loved the development of Clara and her character. From the synopsis you can tell she will eventually grow comfortably with her powers, however, reading it and seeing her fight her struggles was amazing. She is a beautifully complex character and was written so well.
I gave The Nature of Witches 5/5 stars on Goodreads.
Sidebar this is a contemporary fantasy which I don’t think I’ve ever read before and it was so cool. Normally books about witches are historical so I really love how this set itself apart.
Age Rating of The Nature of Witches
I would give The Nature of Witches an Age Rating of 13-14 and up. There is some language, romance, and heavy themes such as struggling with grief, and death.
