The Witches of Echo Park

by Terrence McArthur


Have you ever turned on the TV and found a movie you always wanted to see, but it’s more than halfway through, and you don’t have the “View From Beginning” option? Who are these people? Why are they doing these things? That’s what it’s like to read the last book of a trilogy when you haven’t read the first two.

I am so excited this week to bring you not only a review of the new fantasy novel The Witches of Echo Park by Amber Benson, but also an interview with Amber about this new series. Amber Benson is best known for playing Tara in Buffy the Vampire Slayer–my all time favorite TV show! I have had the pleasure of meeting Amber and she is just as sweet and delightful in person as you would expect. At the end of this post you will also find info on how to enter to win a copy of the book, and a link to purchase the book where a portion goes to help support KRL & indie bookstore Mysterious Galaxy.
