Witch Hunt (The Witch-Game #2) by K.C. Blake
A magical game of Hide n Seek begins.
Find the missing player and win.
The game resets; everyone forgets and starts to play it again.
Starr Hughes hasn’t believed in magic since her mother died. As a reporter for the school paper, she believes in hard facts. Hiding under the headmaster’s desk, planting bugs, and breaking into a fellow student’s home are all on her to-do list. So when she hears the mysterious group known as the It-Squad are about to start playing a secretive game, she wants to know more. She’s especially interested in the group’s gorgeous leader, Dylan Winchester.
With her boy-crazy best friend at her side, Starr is going to discover that not only are witches real, they need her help. Someone is using the game to steal their memories, their powers, and perhaps their lives
This second book in the series was really different than the first. I felt that the author took on almost a whole new writing style to present this new story.
This is the third book of KC's that I have read and I really enjoy how much she can really suck me into a story. They are usually over before I am ready, she is definitely a writer that I would recommend that you pick up.
In the second book the game that is being played is much different than the first book, it actually threw me off a little because I was expecting something similar, as it was a sequel. But she put a whole new spin on things with a whole new game and great characters. With that being said I fully believe that you can read these books out of order.
The main character is a reporter for the school newspaper so has the innate ability to ask questions constantly and be kind of nosy. Her best friend gives the reader some balance with humor and fun. The love interest brings about a variety of emotions on whether the reader wants to love him or hate him, or both! There is a variety of great side characters as well.
We get a little romance, a lot of mystery and some great humor as well.
