Witch under Wraps is the second book in the Mythmatched series. I had no opportunity to read the first book, Howling on Hold. While I read Witch under Wraps, I wished sometimes I had read the first one to recognize some of the characters who seemed to blend into the story perfectly, while to me, they were unknown. One of those characters is Jordan, an unforgettable character who leads through the book with incredible strength.
Ky and Ewan are the protagonists in this book. Ky is an EMT at an unusual hospital, where the patients are supernatural creatures. He’s also a magically talented healer, just like Ewan. Ewan is not a witch, as Ky is. He belongs to a species with natural healing abilities. Since other supernatural creatures have used that species, Ewan instead keeps pretending to be human than to tell too much about himself. Ky hides his witch part as well, and they both meet on a ‘human level,’ where they felt their attraction to each other right away.
They get distracted from their romance by a mysterious illness that attacks the werewolf community and threatens to spread to other supernatural creatures. The danger of this disease leads to revealing some of Ky’s and Ewan’s hiding points. I liked how they still tried to keep up with their romance, even though the story went in another direction.
I like both characters, but admit, in this book Jordan, to me, is a ‘side-character’ that almost took over the story with his focus and strength, and he’s clearly my favorite.
There are a few wonderfully romantic scenes in this book, and I love the author’s talent and writing style. But at one point, there’s no denying that the romance between Ky and Ewan lost on the ground within the story.
I wish I had read ‘Howling on Hold’ first; it would have given me a bit more insight into the nature of some of the characters. But I have to say I enjoyed the story enormously, and it was a fun and light read. I don’t doubt that many fans of LGBT Fantasy will adore this series.
