Rehab Is For Witches by Cynthia Valero

Rehab Is For WitchesRehab Is For Witches by Cynthia Valero
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A digital copy of this book was provided to me in exchange for an honest review.

This is a collection of tales all set in "Little Raven", a rehab centre for witches who have strayed away from the allowed track. Things take a turn when a few of such witches sense that the rehab centre has sinister and strange happenings going on. Do they manage to figure out who is causing these and do they manage to save themselves, and the rehab centre, is what the different tales take us through. Starting with "A Diary Full of Names" that has Die who has been caught selling bad spells, and ending with "A Photo Full of Justice", where all the witches are brought back together and they need to stop an evil force from causing damage, the stories are all beautifully narrated.

The tales have a splattering of characters - a witch who has been abandoned into the hands of a bad witch, a witch who is obsessed with dark magic too much for her own good, that she ends permanently destroying her eyes and hands, a witch who has been caught misusing potions in self-loathing moments, a witch who is in rehab because she found it hard to come to terms with the fact that the love of her life had died, a witch who is in rehab owing to the voices in her head make her set things afire. The narration for all tales has been handled brilliantly - spotlighting the characters and their inner conflicts. The pace in each story is set just right and that makes the reading even more interesting.

I would definitely recommend this book to lovers of fantasy thriller genres.
