Halfway Hunted – My Review!!
Halfway Hunted is the third book in Terry Maggert’s Halfway Witchy series. I read the first two books (and gave them both 5 star reviews), so I had to continue the series. I wasn’t disappointed!
Synopsis (from the author): Welcome to Halfway; where the waffles are golden, the moon is silver, and magic is just around every corner.
A century old curse is broken, releasing Exit Wainwright, an innocent man trapped alone in time.
Lost and in danger, he enlists Carlie, Gran, and their magic to find the warlock who sentenced him to a hundred years of darkness. The hunter becomes the hunted when Carlie’s spells awaken a cold-blooded killer intent on adding another pelt to their gruesome collection: hers.
But the killer has never been to Halfway before, where there are three unbreakable rules:
1. Don’t complain about the diner’s waffles.
2. Don’t break the laws of magic.
3. Never threaten a witch on her home turf.
Can Carlie solve an ancient crime, defeat a ruthless killer and save the love of her life from a vampire’s curse without burning the waffles?
Come hunt with Carlie, and answer the call of the wild.
What I liked: As with the first two books, Carlie, her Gran, and the other characters are familiar and compelling. I liked the new addition Exit Wainwright. He’s a man out of time (he was asleep for 100 years), yet he fits right in with the eccentricities of Halfway. Add to the mix a couple of bounty hunters on the trail of shapeshifters and Carlie’s longshot plan for getting her boyfriend back and you have all the elements for a great story.
What I didn’t like: The book had a disjointed feel to me. Despite everything fitting together, the story of Exit and his wife didn’t have the same feel as other Carlie missions.
Overall impression: In spite of the issue above, enjoyed Halfway Hunted and I hope Terry Maggert will continue the series. Well-written with a fun take on witchcraft, interesting and likeable characters, and a cool plot line, Halfway Hunted is a good addition to the Halfway Witchy series.
My rating: 4.5 Stars (round to 5)
