Publisher's Summary

The first three books in the best-selling Witches of Half Moon Bay series. Action-packed urban fantasy with a heavy dose of paranormal romance. Witches, werewolves, and WTF.

I’m what you call normal by day, and woo-woo by night.

As a college student, I spend my days in class and my evenings selling sage to PTA moms who do moon rituals to manifest better parking spaces. My best friend is a cat who likes pizza, and a “night out” includes hand delivering mysterious packages to the local “coven” of small business owners who repeatedly invite me to their meetings - clothing optional. 

My life is weird. But it’s not magic. Magic isn’t real. At least, that’s what I believed - right up until the moment he walks into my store. 

Alex Channing is rude, brutish, and a constant pain in my ass. He’s also the hottest specimen I’ve ever seen. Maybe that’s why words fail me in his presence. Or maybe it’s the pinging feeling in my gut that says he’s more than what he seems. 

But when he miraculously saves me from certain death, at the hand of a monster whose very existence shouldn’t even be possible, I’m forced to reconsider what’s real. 

My denial is strong, but the reality of who - and what - Alex really is can’t be ignored. Neither can the existence of the monsters who hunt me. The truth is magic is real. And the only thing I’m more in danger of losing than my life - is my heart. 

Get hooked on werewolves and witches in a way you've never heard them before! This set contains the first three books in the best-selling Witches of Half Moon Bay series. Follow Sam and Alex on their journey through the world of witches, werewolves, and wtf!

1 credit for 3 books!! Great deal!

The book is told in dual POV. We meet Alex and Sam. Alex is a well trained Hunter and he’s on the hunt for a cure, and Sam is a college student who is trying to find herself. At some point their worlds collide, and that’s when the fun begins!!
Throughout the series we get to see Hunters, werewolves, and witches. It was such a fun listen and watching Alex stumble along the way was kinda nice since he is swoon worthy. It’s nice to knock a guy off the pedestal occasionally.
I would recommend this book-set to anyone who enjoys listening to paranormal romance books. Mainly this series focuses on hunters, witches, and werewolves.
16+ due to some mature content in the book.

I felt like the narrator, Kelly Pruner did a well job portraying Sam and Alex. The inflections she used were great and kept me listening till the very end.

Amazing!

I love, love this audiobook! The first book may seem frustrating as the main character is frustrated by what's going on but this just speaks to how well it's written since you feel everything she feels. Sam's growth in the second and third book as the mystery of her powers gets revealed bit by bit is fantastic! I loved the story and the narration was spellbinding. I loved finding moments to listen to this series.

Thankfully, it's a set!

Witches of Halfmoon Bay books 1-3 by Heather Hildenbrand and narrated by Kelly Pruner are a set of books surrounding Samantha Knight, a human dropped into the supernatural world to save it.
Book 1 spends its time on getting Samantha to believe in the supernatural world, when she is spending much of her time forgetting things.
Book 2 is trying to help Samantha learn what she needs to know to save the world.
Book 3 is Samantha using what she has learned, and continues to learn, to save Alex, who has been cursed.
Kelly Pruner does a good job with feminine voices, but I had a hard time figuring out which male was talking until it said who it was. Also the male POV was not done in a masculine voice. In my opinion, this would have been a perfect example for a duet narration.
Heather Hildenbrand has done an amazing wonderful job with world building and storyline. Each of the three books in this set continues to grow with the characters, but not continously tell you things from previous books unless they are pertinent to that dialogue or thought.
Would I listen to this book/series again? Yes
Would I recommend this book/series to others? Yes.
I think that it's well written for young teens and clean enough for older people who don't want lots of steam. They are sweet enough for me to tell my mom about them. That is a HUGE compliment from me.

Sucked Right In

I received an audio version of this boxed set for review: all opinions are my own.
I was sucked into this story. Sam was a great protagonist. She didn't fall into the fantasy tropes that get used so much. Instead, she was her own person and I was excited to follow her o her magical journey. The first book starts off great, drags a bit in the middle, but the ending is awesome. The second doesn't have that issue and was great entertainment. The last one changed tone a bit. there were some jokes I wasn't expecting (while there is nothing wrong with these jokes, it just seemed out of place.)
I enjoyed the narration. Some of the characters weren't given distinct voices but you could tell they were different from the main characters.
But overall, I love this first boxed said. I look forward to seeing what happens next.

Unique Story that is hard to stop listening to

Book 1 does a great job of introducing us to the town of Half Moon Bay and everyone who lives there. We meet Sam, a timid human girl surrounded by the supernatural, at least you think she’s human. . . As Sam is forced to confront a world and a power, she hid from herself for years, causing her to block out what is happening around her, until her life is put in jeopardy for ignoring everything.
Alex is struggling to find a way to rid a poison from his body and he travels all over trying to find a cure, landing in half moon bay and meeting Sam.

Book 2: Samantha’s memory is back! Now she needs to figure out how to use her power and save the wolves! The scared person Sam was when she lost her memory is starting to fade away as she gains confidence in herself. Alex drives me a little nuts with his narrow way of dealing with what is happening to him.
I did like getting to know more about Alex’s past, but his not opening up and sharing what he is thinking with Sam makes me frustrated with him. I feel like so many problems between the two of them could have been handled if he would have just shared his thoughts with her and encouraged Sam in her power, instead his bottling everything up seems to weigh on Sam’s confidence.
I loved the relationship between Sam and RJ! RJ is the best and I am so glad he is there for Sam through all her ups and downs.
I love that she has Harold in her life, he is so funny and a great sounding board for Sam.
Getting to learn more about the Hunters and Wolves and the back story of how they came to be was so cool. Sam working for CHAS has me a little conflicted. Sure it’s awesome she has access to all their resources, but I still feel like she is kept in the dark more than she should be and that is leading her into a very dangerous position of not knowing who is on her side and who is against her.

Book 3: Alex has me shaking my head. I wish he would have talked everything through with Sam and trusted her to make the decision vs making it for her. Now he is the one paying the price for magic and hurting everyone around him. He gives Indra power and influence over him and it seems the cure is so much worse than the illness he had.
I love the growth Sam continues to have as she keeps learning more and more about her powers and how she should use them. I love Britney! I was so worried she was going to turn against Sam and I was really wrestling with that. Again, her lying to Sam ended up being a big mistake IMO. I just wish everyone would stop trying to decide for Sam what she should and should not know.

Kelly does a great job narrating all the different characters and bringing the story to life.

I would recommend this series if you:
Love Paranormal Stories about Witches and Wolves.
Love a good vs evil story where the main character must go on a hero’s journey and grow throughout the series.
Like characters that make you love them one minute and then make you want to scream the next.

Loved it!

I loved this series so much! And even better it’s three books in one set! I also love the dual PoV since we get even more insight into the characters and the reasons they do what they do. I want so much more of Alex and all these characters. I can’t wait to see what else is going to happen in this series. The narrator also brought so much joy to an amazing book!

Great Series

Absolutely love Heather Hildenbrand! The first 3 books are amazing!
I love that this series is a spin off of Dirty Blood series, which I fell in live with!
I'm enjoying the continuation into Sam and Alex's life.
It's full of truths, secrets, action, emotion, love, sacrifice, choices and deceit!

Favorite series

Heather Hildenbrand can write a book and series that keeps you invested. The narrator is amazing! I have listened to other books that the narrator has done and I just love all of them. This was an easy listen, right from the start it had me needing to listen to all of it, and I did!

Worth the time

I was hesitant to commit to the account of time needed to listen to the the stories. I broke it up over about 2 weeks. I loved the story. It made my drive to and from work much more interesting.

Just can not get enough of Alex!

What can I say really! I got my first taste of Alex in her Dirty Blood series and well I just had to follow him in this series! If only all guys in books could be like him. Heather could just add him to every book she publishes and plenty of us would follow. ❤️😍🥰

Book 1-3

This is the first boxset in this series and there is another 3 Book boxset after this. These books focuses on Sam trying to recover her lost memories, finding out about the supernatural world and the much bigger story of what is happening and where she fits in it, while also following Alex and his story. With witch's, ware wolves and hunter's it has good potential. I enjoyed listening to the story and following the relationships between all the characters. The only thing that would make it better would have been having a male and female narrators which could be done with the different chapters as it split between following Sam or Alex more. Really looking forward to the next boxset to find out what happens next.

A slow start but then really good

I felt book 1 dragged a little bit, but it was very much worth sticking with as I loved books 2 and 3. The main characters were interesting, fun and well rounded, and developed nicely through the books, particularly Alex. The story, especially in books 2 and 3, had me hooked and I really want to know how things progress in the rest of the series.

My only other issue was the narrator's "out loud" voice for Sam was a bit high and whiney for me, but I got used to it and it wasn't enough to ruin the books. The rest of the voices were good and suited the characters well.
