Witch Hunt (The Fae of Calaveras County #2)

Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Did I enjoy this book: I think Ms. Walker fell into one of the classic second-book-in-a-series blunders — she sacrificed a few rounds of editing to get things published more quickly. Her story was just as fun as the first (though this one tends to dwell more on teen relationship angst instead of cool magic stuff), but the grammatical errors and/or editing misses were significantly more common in book two. Witch Hunt is a great second installment, but Ms. Walker’s editing misstep cost her a star.
Would I recommend it: Yep! If you liked the first one you’ll like this one, just be aware that it’s not as cleanly written.
About the book – from Goodreads: She wished her mom would disappear. Now her mom’s missing, and all she wants is to find her again.
Teen witch Rosamunde broke the spell her mother, Rosmerta, used to control her family and reported the illegal use of magic to the Faerie Court. So her mom became a fugitive from the law, taking Rosa’s younger sister Akasha with her. When none of the faeries can track down her mother, Rosa realizes that she’ll have to be the one to find her mom.
Rosa takes a dangerous risk: getting close to the mysterious exiled Unseelie who helped her mother go into hiding. To gain their trust, she’ll have to break the rules. Her faeriekin friends, Ashleigh and Glen, and kitsune boyfriend, Kai, worry that she’s getting in too deep. But for the chance to confront her mother and save her sister, Rosa will sacrifice anything . . . maybe even the things that she believes in the most.
