{Synopsis} – The acclaimed graphic novel world of The Witch Boy and The Hidden Witch comes to a thrilling conclusion in this story of friendship, family, and finding your true power.
Magic has a dark side . . .

Aster always looks forward to the Midwinter Festival, a reunion of the entire Vanissen family that includes competitions in witchery and shapeshifting. This year, he’s especially excited to compete in the annual Jolrun tournament-as a witch. He’s determined to show everyone that he’s proud of who he is and what he’s learned, but he knows it won’t be easy to defy tradition.

Ariel has darker things on her mind than the Festival-like the mysterious witch who’s been visiting her dreams, claiming to know the truth about Ariel’s past. She appreciates everything the Vanissens have done for her. But Ariel still craves a place where she truly belongs.

The Festival is a whirlwind of excitement and activity, but for Aster and Ariel, nothing goes according to plan. When a powerful and sinister force invades the reunion, threatening to destroy everything the young witches have fought for, can they find the courage to fight it together? Or will dark magic tear them apart?

{My thoughts} – Aster is still struggling to find his place within his family. It has become widely well known that he is a witch boy and most individuals keep telling him how it isn’t normal. His own mother doesn’t seem to be very accepting of it either. His friends on the other hand and his sister all seem to have his back a bout it from the beginning.

This is a special time for Aster because it is time for the Midwinter Festival. He and his family attend and he wants to take part in the annual Jolrun tournament as a witch. His mother is against it and tells another witch Ariel that she should compete. She isn’t sure about it but she does consider it. Aster ends up getting his feelings hurt after the tournament and we learn some new and interesting information about Arial and where she comes from – in terms of her blood line.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It has wonderful illustrations that go nicely with the story. I look forward to reading the next book in this series when it is released. I do believe that this is by far one of my favorite graphic novel series! I highly recommend this book for anyone that enjoys reading graphic novels! It will not disappoint you!

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
