The Vanissens are going to meet the rest of their extended magical family for the midwinter festival, and Aster's friends Charlie and Ariel are coming along. Aster's mom discourages Aster from competing in the Jolrun, but encourages Ariel to do so, creating a rift. And Ariel's aunt has started appearing to her in dreams, trying to get her to leave the Vanissens and come with her instead. High-stakes magic, friendship, and family relationships make for an exciting conclusion to the trilogy.

Continues to be a solid story, didn't think it was the ending. Liked it, liked the family contests and reunion aspects. Neat. ( )

Light and fun. Less “heavy” than some of the others in the series. ( )
  livingtech | Mar 18, 2020 |
Another story in the Hidden Witch sequence: the families meet for a competition, and Ariel is tempted by a witch who claims to be part of her family. A solid entry in the series. ( )
