Elena is a powerful witch, but no one can know that. She hides her power behind new age mysticism and Wiccan ceremonies. The only one besides her mother who knows her secret is her best friend Karl. Karl has loved Elena since they were children, but Elena has always kept him, and everyone else, at arm's length when it came to romantic relationships. The talk her mother had with her when she was a teenager made it impossible for her to have a normal relationship. But, Karl keeps hoping.
Lies and secrets abound in Dianna Hardy's novella, The Witching Pen. Elena discovers there's a lot more to her than she was ever told. With demons trying to seduce her in her sleep and her suppressed feelings for Karl trying to surface, she doesn't know how to stop her world from crumbling around her. She learns that with great power, there is often great pain. As the story goes on, she suffers losses that may just push her into embracing everything she can become - the good and the bad. Are love and good friends enough to save her?
The Witching Pen is a paranormal romance that packs a lot of action in its pages. Readers enter a world with a pen that can write the future, demons who want to destroy the world, dark skeletons in family closets, and the power of love and magic done for the greater good. While the story is focused on Elena's relationship with Karl, other characters also seek to discover who they are and who they can be; some learning that love can come in many different packages. Dianna Hardy has woven a tale of passion and intrigue that brings the reader on a magical journey that can't be put down until the very end.

Elena is a thirteenth generation witch. At a young age, her mother told her being a witch comes with responsibilities; she will not be able to have a normal relationship or sex. She comes into possession of a pen, the witching pen that allows her to write anything that comes true. With the pen comes a dark demon, Nathaniel. Nathaniel haunts Elena's dreams and watches her from the dark until he makes his true intentions known. With the help of friends and family, Elena will uncover secrets as well as a way to prevent a demon portal from happening.

The product preview for this book is good but I don't think it does this book justice. I thought the story would be a certain way from reading the preview but it turned out to be a great start to a good series. The book had a certain simplicity to it in the beginning but later on as the story progress the characters and plot spoke volumes. The characters were all interesting for me. Katherine, Elena's mother seemed a bit cold but has a few secrets of her own. Amy and Mary are very important characters, as I believe their stories will be next. Pueblo seems to be a possessive and sexy demon and I think his story with Amy will be interesting. Karl is Elena's best friend. I have to admit I was not sure what to think of Karl but scene after scene he became sexier. After Karl's ordeal with Elena before and after, previous scenes started to make sense and came together. His role within the story was truly an unexpected surprise and added some excitement for me. Gwain was an interesting character as well; I just wanted to point that out. Saying what his role is will probably give away some of the plot. Lastly, the Shanka demon, Nathaniel, he is a villain need I say more.

I enjoyed the book and l'm looking forward to book 2 to see where the author takes Amy and Pueblo's story.

It's hard to find good Witch books now-a-days. I have to say I was hooked on this one from the first page. I loved it and all to soon it was over. I couldn't believe how engrossed I became reading... then again I love to read and it helps when you get a book and its just too good to put down.

I purchased the next one as soon as I finished with the first and also got the Prequel "Wilted" I can't wait till the the third book is out... hanging in suspense. I can't say enough how happy I am to have found this Author.

I will recommend this over and over to anyone looking for a good read. This is a must have for sure.

I waited to write this review until I had completed the trilogy. And, wow, what a trilogy it is. They are novellas, so the stories are short, but the author has a done a brilliant job of world building here. Usually short stories make you feel as though you've stepped into the middle of a story and are only getting a brief glimpse into the characters lives. Not so here. Ms. Hardy has done an incredible job of giving us fully-fleshed, three-dimensional characters with plenty of action and history with a slightly different take on the supernatural and origins of earth. I won't give away plot-lines, I don't like spoiling a great read, but I highly recommend this entire series to anyone who also enjoys Patricia Briggs, Ilona Andrews, Thea Harrison, Seanan McGuire and Jim Butcher. I'm only thankful that I came across this book as an Amazon freebie. Dianna Hardy has quickly made my "must read" authors list.

I can't wait til the next installment to see where this fantastic story is going.

What an incredible mini-series these books would make. I can only hope someone is pitching this somewhere as a film project.
