From everything that I can tell, The Warding of Witch World is the final entry in the Witch World series. It is Book Six of the Turning Series. The premise is pretty simple, all the witches come together, future allies and past enemies must bond together to face impending doom. All of the gates of their Witch World are open and evil is about to descend upon them. The title of the book comes from the warding and watching of these gates. A robust cast of creatures, including a giant, come together for the battle of their lives. ( )

It can be read without reading the rest of the Witch World books, but I wouldn't recommend it.

Rejoin partners, allies and pairings from many of the previous Witch World novels as they face a danger worse than any previous and venture out on all fronts to face it and best it if they can. ( )

With special thanks to the household. Ingrid and Mark, who listened and listened and listened very bravely.
And to Juanita Coulson, without whose magnificent index to Witch World the work could not have been done at all.
