Publisher's Summary

As the darkness spreads, help comes when she needs it the most....

Marina Fae never considered herself a powerful witch or dreamed that she would one day be a warrior fighting to save her people. Her life changes when the Sea Witch's dark magic sweeps across the Isle of Magic, turning those who resist or cannot escape to stone. Finding refuge in the dense mountain forest, Marina fights to protect the children left behind by Magna's wave of destruction.

Detective Mike Hallbrook's search for two women who disappeared in Yachats State Park takes an unexpected turn. He soon finds himself on an unfamiliar beach after rescuing a woman being attacked by a creature straight out of a horror movie. Stunned by the wild tale she tells him and the evidence surrounding them, he soon learns that everything she says is true - magic does exist - and that he is no longer on Earth. Marina's pleas for help are impossible for Mike to ignore, and he knows he will do whatever he can to help save her people.

Marina and Mike must work together to save the Isle of Magic. As the Sea Witch's evil spreads, they know they cannot stop her alone. With the help of the Dragon King and the King of the Sea People, they will confront the Sea Witch once and for all. But, what happens when they discover a darker entity hidden beneath-an entity that can only be stopped by the person they are trying to kill?

Contains mature themes.

Lovely to listen to this series.

Very enjoyable to be able to listen to this wonderful tale whilst doing other things. Narrator did well with all the different characters voices. Cannot say everyone sounded like I imagined but hey, I can overlook that detail. BOOK REVIEW If you have not read this series then do so, you will not be disappointed. We are getting Ms Smiths very different and entertaining characters in this fun fantasy story. Another fantastic and interesting read from Ms Smith. This review is for the extended version which I loved. This is book three in the wonderful and mythical Seven Kingdoms series. I was one of the lucky few who was able to read the original short version of this story and the ones that followed. Ms Smith has once again proven how clever she is by taking a short fun read for her fans that just scratched the surface of a story and turning it into this great read. This story goes so much deeper than the fun version and gives us so much more about everything and everyone. I feel like I am getting to know these people and their emotions. Mike is wonderful as a hero and his connection to Marina shines in this book. We also get so much more time with the rest of the Isles inhabitants as they all come together to fight Magna. Interesting little extra information we get about King Ashure.

Can’t wait for next book

This book is without a doubt, the best spin on fairytales I’ve ever read. It is in a class all its own while bringing in subtle elements of the very loved fantasies. Character development and the narrator were perfectly matched. I can’t wait until the next book.

Good

The witch's touch is the third book in a series that I was finding interesting so far. At the end of this book, I thought the story was loose .... although the initial question was resolved, and the author left open what happened (or rather will happen) with the sea witch, I got the superficial feeling "everyone lived happily forever".
I think this third book doesn't live up to the other two, although the story has a pleasant development with moments of humor.

good ending to series arc

Detective Mike finds out what happened to Carly and Jenny and helps Marina Fae rally the kings and queen to finally fight Magna and the alien being.
Enjoyable end to this series arc.
Recommend as a well written light paranormal-fantasy romance.
Brenin does a very good job of narration.
