Editorial Reviews

Review

It involves humor, good character plot, intrigue, ethical questions, and a loveable character you cannot get enough of. What every book should feature intelligent things to think about and good jokes to laugh about! --PiscesEarth1987

I love books that cover witches and mysticism and this one did not disappoint. From the first page to the last line I was intrigued and entertained.If you are into fantasy and witches you really need to get this one. --Albert Robbins III

Tales of Aradia, The Last Witch. Book One
This gem came to my attention via another site. The author, L.A. Jones, posted a request for reviews, with a link to download the book for FREE on Smashwords. I jumped on it. We all know that when it comes to Elsie's (Egads, I'm relating to myself in third person?) favorite things Kindle & FREE reads get my heart pumping with excitement. Plus, the cover art was simply divine.We aren't supposed to judge books by their covers, but we all do, and in this case the cover made the download. It was good enough that I might have even paid for the book. Might. Let's not get crazy here.
The story is a YA tale. The bulk of it happens in Salem ( a little cliche for a book about a modern day witch, but in a clean Disney way). The main character, Aradia, is the last true witch. She has supernatural powers & no idea that she is a witch. She knows she's different, but has no idea how or why.
Her friends in Salem High are the usual characters: Vampires, Werewolves (therewolf! Sorry, couldn't resist), Fae, and other assorted 'hidden' elements that live happily alongside humans without any suspicion being cast. Sound a little Twilightesque? Yeah, it kinda is. But that is the least of it's problems.
The real issue with this book, is that it lacked editing. I mean, really lacked any & all editing.
The way the book was written, I felt like I was reading a book written by a someone the same age as Aradia. So much so, that I researched L.A. Jones to try and uncover her age (listed as 23).
I think young teen girls might really enjoy this book, but most adults won't be able to get through it due to the haphazard writing style. Perhaps the first book is free and the second & third volume (at roughly $5.00 a pop) had a serious make over?

This book started out fantastic! The story line was original...at first. Then, sadly it took a tragic, downward spiral into a rendition of a silly, B-rated movie. The writing was choppy and the characters were so inconsistent that they never became tangible. The main character Aradia kept developing powers to suit the situation. The other characters weren't any better I'm sad to say. The author tried to incorporate too many paranormal elements as well. However, I was still entertained by the story. I feel with some major editing & character development this book could be terrific. It is my experience that authors usually get better with second & third books in a series so it is my hope that this will happen for this one too.

I initially downloaded this book because it was free. I was pleasantly suprised that it kept my attention. I enjoyed it so much that I downloaded the entire series and read it in a day. There were only a couple of things that I found issue with. I admit that the editing was bad, but that seems to be the case with a lot of these e-books. At times I wish there was more of a description of the characters provided. A scene from book two felt a little like a scene from the series True Blood on HBO courtesy of Alan Ball. All in all, this is a great story that I can't wait to read further. I have a few predictions that I hope are false just because I love a good twist.

I really wanted to like this book. I think the story was interesting and had potential, and some of the writing seems very well thought out and edited. Unfortunately, most of the book seemed to be in rough draft form, which was very difficult to read and took away from the enjoying the story. I gave up after the first couple of chapters and deleted it from my Kindle. Just too annoying to go any further. Very disappointed since I was intrigued by the story idea.

A novel about a high school girl who is new in town and has a run in with vampires and werewolves made me wary, but it was better than I expected and has stronger characterizations than most of the books found in the deluge of post-Twilight supernatural YA novels. Jones's characters felt more like real people rather than cliche stand-ins going thru the required motions. Aradia is also more witty, resourceful, and resilient than Meyer's Bella and her focus was more on solving murders than falling in love--which allowed the novel even more freedom from the conventions of supernatural romance.

Teenager Aradia finds herself the new girl in a town occupied by vampires, werewolves, and other supernatural creatures. She quickly becomes caught up in typical high school drama and popularity contests and, predictably, becomes torn between potential vampire and werewolf boyfriends. Thankfully, the romance takes a back seat to the recent double murder in town and Aradia directs most of her attention to solving it. She seems to alternate between her vampire and werewolf romantic interests not out of any real romance but out of a desire to work the supernatural grapevine; dating and socializing with whoever provides the clues she's looking for. In all, Tales of Aradia The Last Witch is a strong debut novel and creates high expectations for the rest of the series.

I loved the main character Aradia. She is the last witch of the hidden race but doesn't know it. The story is full of vampires, faeries, werewolves and even shape shifters. The setting takes place in present day Salem, MA. I was pleasantly surprised that it kept my attention so well because it is YA but I loved it. This is the first book in a series, and it does end on a cliffhanger that will leave you begging for more. I loved the story and I am off to search for Volume 2.
I just hope the book cover art on the rest of the series is as great as this one!
