What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
A powerful witch. Four unlikely guardians. A curse that will create an unstoppable monster.
Enslaved for years by a powerful crime lord, Bryn has been forced to harness her elemental magic to create vile potions that have harmed countless supernaturals.
When the compound she’s called home is attacked, Bryn escapes and tastes freedom for the first time in more than a decade.
But when the sins of her past race to catch up with her, she realizes a taste might be all the freedom she’s destined for. Bryn’s unusually strong earth magic puts a target on her back, and when she’s hit with a deadly curse, her only hope comes in the form of four dangerously sexy supernaturals.
Taj, the fire-affinity witch who worked as her jailer. Poe, a panther-shifter assigned to bring in Bryn for a bounty. Silas, a daemon with a dark past. And Calder, a telekinetic and Bryn’s first love.
If the five of them can’t work together, the curse will claim Bryn’s life and her magic. If that happens, it will spell disaster for supernaturals everywhere.
Thoughts on Captive Witch
This really strikes home the concept of responsibility – and who really is the one who should shoulder the blame. Set in the same world (and eventually the same town) as the Twin Rivers Possession series, this has a few of the same faces but a totally different direction. Nice.
- Can’t help but feel for Bryan, plus she is not 100% trusting of ANYONE, and that makes me feel better about her state of mind.
- Fast paced.
- The characters are very interesting.
- Stumbles in a few places.

My Final Verdict on Captive Witch
This ebbs and flows and asks some hard questions, just like September Stone‘s previous series did. Fast paced with slow romance, it blends the action and the mystery together well. Free on KU.
