When eighteen-year-old witch Iris Gray accidentally enacts a curse that could have dire consequences, she must team up with a boy who hates witches to make sure her magic isn’t unleashed on the world.
Iris Gray knows witches aren’t welcome in most towns. When she was forced to leave her last home, she left behind a father who was no longer willing to start over. And while the Witches’ Council was lenient in their punishment, Iris knows they’re keeping tabs on her. Now settled in Washington, Iris never lets anyone see who she really is; instead, she vents her frustrations by writing curses she never intends to cast. Otherwise, she spends her days at the wildlife refuge which would be the perfect job if not for Pike Alder, the witch-hating aspiring ornithologist who interns with them.
Iris concocts the perfect curse for Pike: one that will turn him into a witch. But just as she’s about to dispel it, a bird swoops down and steals the curse before flying away. If the bird dies, the curse will be unleashed―and the bird is a powerful amplifier, and unleashing the curse would turn not just Pike, but everyone in the region, into a witch.
New witches have no idea how to control their magic and the consequences would be dire. And the Witches’ Council does not look kindly on multiple offenses; if they found out, Iris could be stripped of her magic for good. Iris begs Pike to help her track the bird, and they set out on a trek through the Pacific Northwest looking for a single bird that could destroy everything.
Something magical is happening.
Wild is the Witch was such a awesome read. My first time reading Rachel Griffin books. It won’t be the last time. I really loved the storyline and the characters so much. Another awesome cover that I like. It full of suspense and cute animals. This book recently hit the shelves. So check out your local bookstore.
Iris I liked in the book. She is a witch in hiding after something bad happen years ago. She loves helping wild animals and form a bond with a wolf. To deal with stress she writes out spells and don’t finish them.
Pike is so annoying in the beginning. He jokes about everything and hate witches. When he trash talk about Iris best friend, he better watch out. Out of anger Iris curse Pike, but an owl steals the curse away. Now they must work together to get it back, without Iris revealing her secrets.
This book was a fun enemies to lovers read. I love how much Pike and Iris interact with each other in the book. Just happy this is a stand alone book, don’t have to worry about cliffhangers. Ready to go owl hunting?
