Sweet and Bitter Magic Review

Sweet & Bitter Magic

Commentary

Tamsin is the most powerful witch of her generation but that doesn’t mean a thing as since she committed the worst magical sin, she’s exiled by the ruling Coven and cursed with the inability to love. Now she makes her way the only way she can she’s set herself up in a small town where she’s both a loner and an outsider. The villagers come for her for cures but they pay a steep price. The only way Tamsin can feel love again is to take it from others and that is the price for her work.

Tamsin’s problem is using too much magic then Wren a source—a rare kind of person who is made of magic, despite being unable to use it herself. Then Wren is giving up her magic entirely out of a sense of misplaced love. Sources are required to train with the Coven as soon as they discover their abilities, but Wren—the only caretaker to her ailing father—has spent her life hiding her secret.

When a magical plague ravages the queendom, Wren’s father falls victim. To save him, Wren proposes a bargain: if Tamsin will help her catch the dark witch responsible for creating the plague, then Wren will give Tamsin her love for her father.

Of course, love bargains are a tricky thing, and these two have a long, perilous journey ahead of them—that is, if they don’t kill each other first..

Back to the no spoilerly part I love Wren, she knows absolutely nothing about the outside world, and yet she’s not a shrinking violet she’s also Tamsin’s moral compass many times throughout the book. Some of my other favorite things in the book include the world of Within and how the magic system works. I also really love Vera. The villain in the book is even very interesting and not exactly a traditional villain at all. This is such a great read I’ll definitely read it again 5/5 stars.
