The Lavender Witch - review
Super easy to be pulled in by this story. The pace it's smooth, and also the writing. It's simply a smooth read, with a quickly evolving plot, that keeps you hooked from one chapter to another. Written in the first person, one gets quickly drawn into the internal and external conflicts of the main heroine. She has certainly her faults, does things, even though she's aware they are wrong, but that's the beauty of this character -- not perfect yet strong, witty, and sharp. In fact none of the characters is black or white - they all have good and bad traits, which makes them very interesting.The relationships in this story are complex, toxic, intense. At times one forgets we're talking about supernatural beings so human their problems seem.

What could be better: in some parts, especially when there are only two persons involved, dialogue tags could be removed, as it's already evident who is speaking. At times there's lengthy and repetitive background explanations, which could be revealed slower. Also some inner voice speculations and musings of the MC are sometimes too detailed and unnecessary.
In conclusion, once you start on this book it will be hard to stop and the characters won't leave you indifferent,, you'll like them, hate them, then like them again.
