Review: The Witching Pen by Dianna Hardy

The Witching Pen (The Witching Pen Novellas, #1)

(Book One of The Witching Pen Novellas)

It's hard being the most powerful witch on the planet. It's even harder when you're a twenty-five year old virgin who'll lose all of that power the moment you sleep with someone ... that's why Elena's never slept with her best friend and flatmate, Karl, despite the true feelings they harbour for each other.

Elena's about to discover that there are even more difficult things in life to deal with. One of them comes in the form of a pen she discovers one day, a pen that allows anything she writes to come to pass...

Suddenly, it's not just her powers or her heart that's at stake, but her very soul, as a dream demon with a seductive pull uses the pen to try and turn her away from her reality, and from Karl.

But the pen is just the beginning. Everything Elena has believed in is a lie, and her world is about to fall apart...

Includes the bonus short story, Wilted (A Witching Pen Novellas Prequel)

I finally got around to reading The Witching Pen, and do you know when you have one of those moments that you're really cross with yourself, when you could smack yourself? Well after reading The Witching Pen, that's exactly how I felt. Why, oh why did I leave it so long! It's friggin' awesome. I mean seriously superb. It's so fresh, and had such fantastic twists that really blew me away.

The Witching Pen is a novella, but it really didn't feel like it as it had the substance of a novel. It was highly descriptive, entertaining and superbly written. The story flows effortlessly, with no fragments in narrative or character holes. It really is that awesome and beautifully crafted.

Yes, I know I'm gushing, but I enjoyed it that much. In many ways, I'm so pleased that it's a novella. It took me approx 4 hours to read, which was so lovely has I felt fulfilled when I reached the end. What's also fantastic, is that Dianna Hardy leaves her story open perfectly for her next installment.(The sands of Time)

I'm not going to discuss the storyline or leave any spoilers, all you need to do is read the synopsis for an overview. All I will say, is that I love the main characters. Elena is a superb protagonist of substance, and Karl is just wonderfully dreamy. *sigh*

Thank you Dianna Hardy for being such an amazing author.
