Heart of a Witch (Embracing Darkness Collection, Book 2)

About the Book:

Hidden in a kingdom that hates witches, I’m forced to hide what I am. With my sister working in a secret dark magic club, and our family’s shop gaining unwanted attention, things couldn’t be worse when the notorious witch hunter, Damian Shaw, comes to town.

When my sister shows up dead, and my family’s name is called into question, we’re forced to adopt new aliases and leave the home we cherished. As I watch my life fall apart, I vow to destroy the hunter responsible, but his punishment would not be swift. Death was too easy.

Redforest is a quaint town, with a church, pretty shops, and people who despise witches. When my family and I move in, I set my sights on the Shaw family, quickly learning everything I can about them. Damian’s son, Elijah, is the hunter’s greatest pride. His heir. His confidante. The only family he trusts.

I come up with a plan. I am going to shatter every good thing in Damian’s life, starting with his son. My goal: make Elijah Shaw fall in love with me, turn him against his father, and ruin everything in his life from the inside out.

With my family and heart on the line I must be careful, or I may end up becoming the same monster I am trying to kill.

Embraced by Darkness is a collection of standalone books set in the same world without an overarching plot, which means you can start with any books in the series and pick and choose which ones you want to read. This collection of novels follows different couples as they go from enemies to friends to lovers, while facing dangerous obstacles in a world split between humans, shifters, witches and gods, set in two kingdoms that separate them.



This book was so interesting. I don’t read many witchy books, but I would totally recommend this one to people looking to explore it.

This plot was so good. I loved the way it kept twisting and making you want more. I landed up reading this book in one sitting, it was good. I loved the world-building and how you never felt it was overtaking the story.

The characters were well written. They were complex and so different from normal characters. I loved how Garcia developed her characters in this, especially Victoria’s character. Villains can be hard to write well, especially when they the MC, but Victoria was so brilliant.

Overall, I loved this book. This story was original and exciting. Victoria was an amazing MC and it was hard not to love her. I would highly recommend.
