REVIEW ~ Always A Witch

Always a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough

Rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source: Netgalley
Genre: YA Fantasy

Description from Goodreads:  The adventures of Tam and Gabriel continue with more time travel, Talents, spy work, and of course, the evil Knights. 

Since the gripping conclusion of Once A Witch, Tamsin Greene has been haunted by her grandmother's prophecy that she will soon be forced to make a crucial decision—one so terrible that it could harm her family forever. When she discovers that her enemy, Alistair Knight, went back in time to Victorian-era New York in order to destroy her family, Tamsin is forced to follow him into the past. Stranded all alone in the nineteenth century, Tamsin soon finds herself disguised as a lady's maid in the terrifying mansion of the evil Knight family, avoiding the watchful eye of the vicious matron, La Spider, and fending off the advances of Liam Knight. As time runs out, both families square off in a thrilling display of magic. And to her horror, Tamsin finally understands the nature of her fateful choice.

Beka's Thoughts:   Always a witch is the sequel to Once a Witch.  In this book, the main character Tasmin Greene travels back into time to save her own family of witches from a even more dangerous family called the Knights. In the end, Tasmin has to make a devastating choice that will determine the course of the future.

Always a Witch is very well written and there is obvious character developed between the first book and the second.  Contains mild profanity and some violent scenes.  Recommended for seventh grade and up.
