My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The Warlock's Daughter by Jennifer Blake is a Steel Magnolia Press publication. This short story/novella was originally published in 2011. This book is also a part of the "Forbidden Lovers" bundle/box set available in the kindle store. Carita is half human and half witch. Her mother died in childbirth and her father, the warlock has left her in the care of an aunt in New Orleans. on a stroll on Halloween night, Carita meets a man that strikes up a conversation with her. Renfrey is like an old fashioned gentleman, but he asked Carita some rather probing questions. It was almost as if he knew her or of her and was not out on this night by accident. Carita is stunned to learn of Renfrey's identity and the connections he has to her life. But, the attraction they have for one another could be dangerous, even fatal. The underlying message here is that life is a risk. You must decide if the risk is worth taking. While, very short, the story was still interesting. There wasn't enough time to really develop the characters and some thing left me wondering. But, it wasn't too hard to pick up on the theme of the book and Carita learns to step out of her shell and live life. This promises to be a great choice for her and for Renfrey. I don't think those two his have a boring moment between them. Overall this a C+
