Nice blend of hopelessness and the journey of two very different girls on a path to figure out if either or both can find a remedy. Both Tamsin and Wren are appealing, even if Tamsin's guilt and self-loathing get in her way endless times. The gradual awareness on both girl's part of their attraction is nicely laid out. The ending's a tiny bit soft after most things are resolved, but that's a very minor matter. ( )

I went into this book skeptical because witches are not really my thing, but it completely pulled me in and I fell in love with these characters and the writing. The setting and atmosphere created by the writing style immediately pulled me in because it is written like a new fairy tale. Our two main characters are a banished witch living on the outskirts of a village trading magic & healing for love, and a seemingly "normal" girl who is really a magic source in hiding trying to take care of her ailing father instead of living her own life. When a plague caused by dark magic sweeps over the queendom, the two team up to hunt the dark witch, which means returning to the Coven who banished one and doesn't know about the other. Their journey together was an awesome, almost episodic at times, adventure. The banter between the two is hilarious, full of sparks and romantic tension.

Both show very real vulnerabilities in believing they are powerless or failures, and the self doubt they show and work through is extremely relatable. Nothing is instantly "fixed" by magic but it takes talking about their doubts, opening up to support from each other, and coming to trust themselves again that "saves" them, though the ending is authentic because there is still more growth to happen. I appreciated that it wasn't a "chosen one" or "fallen hero" story that wrapped up with a bow. these characters feel so real and personal because they have faults and missteps along the way, in lots of ways I could relate to as a reader. The romance between the two was also fantastic. It similarly drew from real insecurities and miscommunication into something founded on trust and understanding.

I highly recommend this for lovers of fantasy, magic, journey adventures, romance, and those struggling to find their own place in the world. ( )

‘Sweet & Bitter’ is about Tamsin, the most powerful witch of her generation and Wren, a magical source proposes a bargain: if Tamsin will help her catch the dark witch responsible for creating the plague, then Wren will give Tamsin her love for her father.

All things considered—this was a fairly decent debut. The polar opposites queer duo, character development, the non overly romanticize plot, and how the author touched based on death and mental illness were my favorite portions of the read. Otherwise—bland/mediocre the writing style wasn’t up to par with what I envision for the novel, the romance between Tamsin and Wren wasn’t believable and there was a lack of chemistry, agonizing info dumps, and dragful scenes that had me skim here and there.

Ultimately, this novel has the capability to hold your attention till the last page and it wasn’t completely terrible so 8/10, I will give this author another go. ( )
