Book Review: Spirit Witch (The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Magic #3) by Helen Harper

Spirit Witch (The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Magic #3)

If anyone appreciates what it means to be dead to the world, it's Ivy Wilde.

Barely recovered from her brush with necromancy, Ivy is flung once more into a world of intrigue, adventure and potential death and disaster. It's not her fault - it just so turns out that she's now the only person in the entire world who can communicate with the dead. And they're a chatty bunch with a list of demands.

When the ghosts offer information about a witch-hating mass murderer in return for Ivy's help, she has no choice but to get involved. She might be getting herself into more trouble than she realises though - and that's even before she's dragged to Sunday dinner so she can meet Winter's family...

This is the third book in The Lazy Girl's Guide To Magic series.

Spirit Witch marks the conclusion to Helen Harper’s Lazy Girl’s Guide to Magic Trilogy. In this final installment, Ivy has acquired the ability to communicate with dead souls trapped on the earthly plane; a side effect of the necromantic magic she absorbed in book two. For all of Ivy’s lackadaisical tendencies, she feels compelled to assist the trapped souls in crossing over amidst being thrust into a serial killer investigation. With Raphael Winter by her side, Ivy sets about solving the mystery and using her newfound power for good. Perhaps with the mystery behind her Ivy will finally find time for a little Netflix ‘n’ Chill.

Spirit Witch has all the exceptional characteristics I’ve come to rely upon in a Helen Harper book. Her stories are well-crafted and imaginative, both action-packed and hilarious. Harper is an accomplished creator of romantic tension. At this point in the series, however, Ivy and Winter have solidified their feelings. Gone is the delicious tension created in the first two books. Instead, Harper focuses on developing her highly entertaining characters and thrilling storyline. One of my favourite characters of this series is Brutus, Ivy’s feline familiar. He’s salty as hell, but always comes through when it counts.

This is the third Helen Harper series I’ve read, and I’m hooked. Her books have something for all paranormal readers, but I especially love her humour and witty female heroines. If you haven’t already, it’s time to check out Helen Harper.

About the Author:
After teaching English literature in the UK, Japan and Malaysia, Helen Harper left behind the world of education following the worldwide success of her Blood Destiny series of books. She is a professional member of the Alliance of Independent Authors and writes full time although she still fits in creative writing workshops with schools along with volunteering to teach reading to a group of young Myanmar refugees.

Helen has always been a book lover, devouring science fiction and fantasy tales when she was a child growing up in Scotland.

Helen currently lives in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with far too many cats – not to mention the dragons, fairies, demons, wizards and vampires that seem to keep appearing from nowhere!
