Something Witchy This Way Comes by H.P. Mallory

From Goodreads
A witch’s work is never done, and in bestselling author H. P. Mallory’s mesmerizing new novel, Jolie Wilkins finds that the real magic is only just beginning.
For smart and sexy witch Jolie Wilkins, being Queen of the Underworld is a royal pain. Back from a round of time travel, Jolie must now protect her realm from the sinister Lurkers—a powerful breed of half-humans bent on conquering the undead. And if there’s one thing she knows, it’s that the supernatural never go down without a fight. 
At least Jolie has her soul mate (and 
finally official boyfriend), warlock Rand Balfour, by her side. Honorable, brave, and unbelievably handsome, Rand is everything Jolie wants in a man. So why can’t she forget the dangerously alluring vampire, Sinjin Sinclair? With her private life heating up and a battle boiling over, Jolie sets out to prove that in matters of love and war, the fairer hex has its own set of charms.


Jolie Wilkins has come a long way. She went from a physic who owned a small fortune-telling shop to a witch who is now the Queen of the Underworld. Currently she has a whole new set of problems though to deal with as she tries to find a way to take care of the Lurkers.

Even though Jolie and Rand are now bonded and together, the ever-present triangle with Jolie, Rand, and Sinjin still manages to pop up. Jolie loves Rand, but there is still some conflict between these three. To top it off Sinjin ends up doing something that eventually gets him banned from the Underworld. 

As the story progresses, Jolie starts to question what is the truth and what is not. There are quite a few surprises and twists in the story that keep things exciting and entertaining.  Apart from Jolie, Rand, and Sinjin, H.P. Mallory has created a fun and in depth world filled with vampires, faeries, werewolves, and other supernatural creatures to grab the readers’ interest.

Something Witchy This Way Comes is a fun Halloween read that is the fifth and last installment in the Jolie Wilkins Series. For this being the last book, I felt like I was still left with some questions… Questions I am wondering if will be answered. I hear there will be spin-offs, but to me, it would be disappointing if the things that were left unanswered took a back seat in the spin-off books.  Looks like I will just have to wait and see what happens when H.P. Mallory releases the possible spin-off. 

Rating: 3 out of 5.
