About The Reticent Witch by J E Martin
This is the second book from the ‘When Darkness Calls’ series. Though it is a standalone story which can and perhaps should be read before book 1 ‘Sold Out Soul Doubt’.
This is the story of Catherine Antoinette Heely, ‘The Reticent Witch’. Cathy is the product of meticulous bloodline manipulation over many centuries; she is a hybrid witch of immense power; a power she does not want, a power that she feels to be a curse rather than a gift.
The story charts her life from birth to present day; told through her own eyes, it tells of her struggles and her anguish as she learns to manage her powers and to harness them for good. All of this as she comes of age. Her struggles intensified and against a backdrop of school bullies, a vindictive sister and a voice in her head she calls ‘The Darkness.’A voice which seeks to coerce her to inflict dreadful punishments on those who stand against her, as it attempts to win her over.
Cathy has a short temper and a propensity for exacting immediate and often irreversible punishments on those who seek to harm her physically or who hurt her emotionally; she must learn to control her anger and her wrath before they consume her.
As Cathy matures, physically, emotionally and sexually, she finds herself in numerous types of conflict, as she tries with all that she is, to use her powers for the good of others.
Cathy seeks only to love and to be loved, to live a simple life at one with nature. However, her trust issues, driven by the betrayal and the lies of others, are a constant barrier to her finding happiness.
Cathy finds herself questioning her own sanity as her life descends into chaos as the afflicted and the dead mount in her wake, will she find the solace she so desires?
Is Cathy a good person resisting evil, or is she an evil person trying against all the odds to be good? Will she win the day, or will she succumb to The Darkness?
