When a portentously delivered letter arrives, Libby’s world begins to unravel. Her grandfather is dying and wants to see his daughter and granddaughter one last time. The Frye’s relent and, despite warnings to the contrary, set off for Germany. There, Libby’s grandmother betrays the family. Now Libby must save her parents and get safely back home. Problem is, Aunt Zelna, the most powerful Hessen witch, wants Liberty Frye as her own.
Liberty Frye and the Witches of Hessen pits two friends against a powerful witch who wants to become the most powerful witch the Hessen witches have ever seen. For this, she needs Libby. The reader is often not sure whom to trust and neither does Liberty. As in our lives, some characters are both good and bad. Liberty’s sheltered life puts her at a distinct disadvantage, especially when judging trustworthiness of those she encounters. In due time the readers will understand, but not until Libby and Ginny—who convinces a crazy old pilot to fly her across the Atlantic—come face-to-face with the horrid Aunt Zelna and all of her wicked powers.
Most of the chapters had me on the edge of the page, eager to know what will happen next. Because of this, I read Liberty Frye and the Witches of Hessen over two nights. The action is believable, as are each character; all of whom have some secret to hide. Had Liberty Frye and the Witches of Hessen met the requirements for a “Best Book on KLR,” it would have received 6-Stars. Few self-published books are publisher-worthy. Liberty Frye and the Witches of Hessen is one of those rare finds.
Kids will enjoy the Hessen witch world and Libby’s place in it. The characters are edgy and often funny. The Hessen world, past and present, is enticing and curiosities abound. The writing drew me in then the plotting and characters grabbed me. If you like witches, magic, strange happenings, and the cautious spilling of secrets, you will love Liberty Frye and the Witches of Hessen.

Overall I thought this story was awesome! The characters in the book were great and you really got to know them. Libby is a great main character. She is smart and loyal. I did find that the beginning of the book was a little confusing (there were things that were explained later in the book, maybe because I am a kid, I found it a little confusing). I like the adventure and the fact it wasn't too scary or violent. I really like how Libby kept finding more and more about her family and who she really was. I think boys and girls will like the book. It is a very fun story and I hope that this turns into a series because this is a really great book and I know that it could stop at one book, but I would like to learn more about what happens next with Libby!

What I liked: I generally enjoyed this book. It was a bit confusing in places, but I think it was just because I was reading too fast.Read more
