It's been almost a year, but Jane still hasn't mastered this whole "witchcraft" thing. True, she managed to turn the Potomac River into ice, and can make small whirlpools in the sink...but those things aren't really helpful in real life...right?
Things are looking up for Jane's love life however, when a handsome Brit randomly walks into Melissa's bakery asking for a plateful of Lust. Floating on her prospects of a new beau, Jane's euphoria is short lived when David, her warder, tells her that the Coven wants to meet her.
The Washington Coven, or sisterhood of witches in the local area is run by the formidable Teresa Alison Sydney, a powerful witch who grants access to the Coven only to those who the sisterhood deems worthy. On her first meeting, Jane is set a task to be completed by Halloween night. If she fails, everything she has in her possession, her spell books, crystals, runes, even her now good friend Neko, will belong to the Coven.
So, on top of an increasingly busy job, a new boyfriend, and fight with her best friend, Jane must find time to study for her upcoming test to join the Coven. But right in the middle of all this activity, Jane starts receiving threats. Magic - associated threats that are warning her away from the Coven. What's a girl to do?
I usually bash sequels. They're never as good as the original. Did I say that? "Sorcery and the Single Girl" is the total exception to that rule/statement! If anything "Sorcery and the Single Girl" is even better than its predecessor "Girl's Guide to Witchcraft." Jane Madison is like an old friend to me now, and I cannot wait for the next installment of her stories and adventures to hit the shelves this October!
Klasky has an innate sense of capturing Jane's feelings and emotions and transmitting them to her readers. I found myself through the entire book thinking: "yeah, I've felt that way." "Tell me about it!" and spontaneous outbursts of "you go girl!" were not uncommon either.
Full of romance, excitement, and a lot of humor "Sorcery and the Single Girl" is just as appetizing as the original "Girl's Guide to Witchcraft" if not more so!
Five Stars! '
