Getting back to Xest was the easy part. It’s staying here that seems to be the problem.

I have three hags, also known as Xest Immigration, hot on my tail trying to deport me back to Salem. The wall I built in the Unsettled Lands is in jeopardy. Hawk, a man who was once my ally, can’t decide if he wants to lead the horde trying to drive me out or kiss me. Not to mention, everyone keeps calling me the Nowhere witch, and I’ve got a bad feeling it’s not a compliment.

But when the betrayals start rolling in, I realize I’ve got bigger problems. Staying alive becomes the most important issue of the day.

The Nowhere Witch is a wonderful follow-up to the Whimsy Witch Who Wasn’t in the Tales of Xest series by Donna Augustine. Tippi begins the novel by unceremoniously finding herself returned to Xest after having secured passage home, whether she wanted to be there or not. Tippi finds herself at home in Xest and has a renewed faith to make it work this time. I loved her renewed faith in herself, against all odds, she continues on, obstacle after obstacle, to carve her place in Xest and with the citizens. With her powers still unreliable, she seeks help from friends and the not-as-friendly. 

I really enjoyed this book, Donna Augustine writes perfectly flawed heroine’s coming into their own, Tippi’s journey in The Nowhere Witch shows her resilience, her strength, her will. This was a great sequel and I feel it’s poised for a significant reveal in the next installation – which I’ll be so excited to read!

About the Author:
Donna Augustine was an odd child, had a brief moment of conformity in early adulthood and then decided to embrace her craziness as the years rolled by. It's her inner crazy that she credits with coming up with the ideas for her books. One part hypochondriac, a few dashes of paranoia, topped with a sliver of uptight and delivered with a relaxed flair, she kicked the proverbial box down the yellow brick road a couple years ago to embrace her true self.

She can be reached by a carrier pigeon, set free in a south by north direction, where she resides in Neverland with her two Siberian cats. Cats who, by the way, aren't as hypoallergenic as she believed they'd be.

For the conventional minded, and those of you without a pigeon on hand, she can be reached at She responds to most emails within three dusk periods.

P.S. For those of you looking for the discarded box, it was sitting beside the road for a while but has since disappeared completely.
