The Last Witch Synopsis
For generations the Incenaga Witches have been forced to use their power to fulfill the wishes of others until they are drained of their magic and left to die. Desperate to protect his infant daughter - the last surviving witch - Emmeline’s father escapes with her to the forests where he vows to keep her hidden from the world and from the truth.
Sixteen years later, Emmeline is discovered and finds herself in the grip of a traitor who will stop at nothing to get what he wants, even if it means abusing her power until she dies. She is taken to a distant country and told she must marry the Crown Prince or her own country will be overtaken, its people slaughtered. But what sort of prince would marry a witch? And why would she be the difference between war and peace?
As she fights to regain her freedom, she is faced with a choice between a prince who offers a lifetime of security and a common gamekeeper who has no idea of her power, but offers his heart.
But who do you trust when your power can be used against you?

Debbie Dee captured my attention within the first few pages and held my attention until the very end. It's rare for a book to keep me enthralled as The Last Witch did. I credit the innocent, loving characters of Emmeline and Erick and the intriguing plot for keeping me immersed in the story. Emmeline is such a sweet character. Like most young adults, she struggles to understand her heritage and place in the world. She recently learned she was the last incenga witch. However, she doesn't understand the true significance of her power. Erick is an honorable, young man. He envisions a prosperous kingdom by creating trade agreements with other lands unlike others who believe the kingdom will only prosper through war. However, the King's right hand man, Mahlon, has different plans. He wants all the power and the control. Mahlon will stop at nothing to achieve his goal of war. Unfortunately, I don't like to give any spoilers in my reviews. So, everyone will have to read The Last Witch to see which prevails: innocence and good or power and greed.
I highly recommend this book. It was a pleasantly surprising read. I loved it! I hope to see more of Emmeline and Erick in the future.
I rated The Last Witch 5 STARS!!
