About the Book:

A kidnapped child. A witch on the warpath. A church guard in crisis.

In the year of our Lord 1815, Thomas Drake Saint-Clair, Earl of Braden, a Guard of the Green Cross, is tasked by his archbishop to rescue a missing boy and return him to his warlock father. The order lands Braden in the middle of an unholy war between witches and warlocks and shoves him headlong past a sacred line he’d sworn never to cross.

Newly confirmed Coven Protectress, Merryn Pendraven, rushes to rescue a witch’s son. She’s convinced the same evil warlock who was responsible for her younger brother’s death is behind this kidnapping, too. She has no intention of letting this vile villain get away with the same crime, twice.

When Merryn discovers Braden is also on the case, she’s tempted to join forces. Yet, how can she truly trust him when her aunt has warned that Braden’s second secret charge is to destroy their coven? Finding love in this cauldron of trouble might prove to be Merryn’s deadliest mission and Braden’s complete undoing

If you liked A Discovery of Witches and Dr. Strange or Mr. Norrell, you’ll love Coven at Callington, an anime-inspired witchy tale that will whisk you away on a rip-roaring Regency ride.

My thoughts:

Coven at Callington by Shereen Vedam is a delightful and unique Fantasy Romance set in the Regency world of 1815 with some very unique plot ideas. Book 1 in “The Cauldron Effect.”

An exciting and complicated story that blends religion,  magic, witches, warlocks, faes, intrigue and more. Thomas Drake Saint-Clair, Earl of Braden, and a Guard of the Green Cross, is “tasked by the archbishop to rescue a missing boy and return him to his warlock father”, what he finds is, an unholy war between witches and warlocks. Merryn Pendraven, is a newly confirmed Coven Protectress, who rushes headlong to the rescue of a witch’s son. Totally convinced the same evil warlock who was responsible for her younger brother’s death is  behind this boy’s kidnapping, as well.

This story blends a magical world with the religious world seemlessly with great world building.  However,  at first it was a bit disconcerting, the dialogue between all the creatures was a bit hard to understand but once you get into the story it all comes together with clearer understanding.  It was easy to fall in love with Merryn and Braden, the otherworldly characters and their worlds and stay glued to the pages. A very intriguing mixture of magic, witchcraft,  religion and finding love between two different worlds with a few surprises and twists and turns.  Definitely a rip-roaring Regency ride with a delightful witchy tale. If you enjoy tales of magic, witches, faes, mystery,  warlocks, a bit of suspense and the excitement of finding a balance between love and the diversity of love between  different worlds, you will definitely enjoy the COVEN AT CALLINGTON.  The author did an exceptionally good job of blending a well written and well crafted story with the WOW factor.  Brilliantly written! This was my first time reading this author’s writing style and I was delighted with the premise of this new series.  I look forward to reading more of Shereen Vedam’s stories.
