Uncaged Review of Scared Witchless by Amy Boyles

As is appears in Uncaged Book Reviews, Issue 2. Link below.

Scared Witchless
Amy Boyles
Supernatural Suspense


A witch. A murder. A wedding dress?

Dylan Apel is having one heck of a summer. She knows her hand-made clothing is special, but magical? Discovering that she's a witch is bad enough, but when Dylan realizes there are folks who’ll kill to possess her witchy powers— that’s enough to make a girl want to hide out in the back of her boutique. Only problem is, Queen Witch is in town, itchin’ to make sure Dylan learns to cast spells, and this witch won’t take no for an answer. 

Dylan must learn fast—someone just killed her best client with a poisoned gown meant for Dylan. Was it the tall, mysterious hottie in black, who's suddenly everywhere she goes? After all, the first thing Roman Bane says is he doesn't like witches. Is he here to save her, or kill her? 

Dylan is barely getting a handle on her new powers when she finds herself surrounded by witches bossing her this way and that, local police nosing about, and wary clients—death by clothing is not good for business. And the solstice is coming … a time when witch powers are at their peak. Can Dylan survive the chaos long enough to figure out her new life? 

Uncaged Review (Reviewed by Michael):  This was by far one of the best witch books I’ve read in a long time. The main character was relatable and easy to get attached to. Each chapter had a few places that made me laugh out loud at some of the stuff the girls got into. There were a few spots where there was a few word misplacements that took me out of the scene, but they were few and far between. I would recommend this to any of my friends. Some of the things Amy Boyles did well is that she managed to snag me in the first two chapters with the relatable sisters, each one with their own strengths and weaknesses that she frequently returns to. Each character she introduces throughout the book is memorable. Amy does a fantastic job at setting the scene and keeping you in her world. This being book one in the series, it has done the job to ensure that I will certainly pick up the next book to find out what happens next.
