A darkness has settled over Xest, as roaming hordes of grouslies prey on the vulnerable. Witches and warlocks fear walking the streets, as lines are being drawn, and sides are taken. There’s only one way to stop the destruction coming, but tracking down an evil that doesn’t want to be found isn’t easy.

When a demon from hell shows, threatening to take over a Xest on the brink of destruction, I only have one option: get in the way. My sacrifice, offering myself as collateral to buy us time, is driving a larger divide between me and a furious Hawk. Meanwhile, finding the origin of the evil destroying our world means delving into my own inner demons. The closer I get to the truth, the closer I get to losing Hawk, my newfound family and everything I’ve fought for.

My Review:

The Most Wanted Witch
Tales of Xest #3
Donna Augustine


Series summary:
Tippi Tudor always a misfit in Salem finds herself kidnapped to a place called Xest, an alternate world where magic rules and learns that she’s a witch. There she makes friends and meets a powerful, hottie, entity called Hawk who she’s equally attracted to and put off by but who always seems to have her back no matter what. When she realizes that in Xest she’s finally found a home she fights for the right to stay while figuring out how to slay a monster that’s terrorizing the residents.

Donna Augustine is an excellent storyteller as evidenced by how engaged she keeps readers from page one to the surprising finish at the end of this series installment.  She also keeps them on their toes with her direct no-nonsense dialogue mixed in with some much needed humor in the dark world she’s created putting her kick-butt, heroine Tippi through the ringer trying to figure out how to keep her friends safe from the evil invading Xest. She also tackles some social problems like injustices and inequalities, relationship dos and don’ts and friendship obstacles. Also in book three readers learn a bit more about Tippi’s roots and are left not with answers but a longing for book 4 where hopefully all the questions will finally be put to rest in Xest. Maybe.

In book three Tippi has been through a lot since her abrupt arrival on Xest and she’s not letting the evil known as Dread that’s roaming the streets take over the only place that’s ever felt like home. If she didn’t have enough on her plate trying to keep her friends safe, her enemies off her doorstep, figure out where she stands with Hawk and try to keep them all safe from Dread, now she’s got a demon from hell and an angel who wants a part of her too. What’s a witch to do? Well this witch is going to put one foot in front of the other, figure out how to get rid of Dread and get the demon and angel off her back. Oh and somehow figure out just exactly what’s between her and Hawk. Yeah easy peasy.

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 donna@donnaaugustine.com. 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.


  1. That sounds like my kind of book for sure. This sounds really good.

  2. Tippi sounds like a character who finds her place and is rather kick ass as well.

  3. I have book one on my Kindle, I am sure thanks in part to you! Great review Debbie.

  4. I've been getting back into reading paranormal, specifically witches, so this sounds fabulous! Hugs, RO
