Legend of Witchtrot Road by E.J. Stevens

Title: Legend of Witchtrot Road (Spirit Guide #3)

Author: E.J. Stevens

Publisher: Sacred Oaks Press

Pages: 97

Reviewed by: Sabrina

Surviving agitated ghosts, irritated witches, angry werewolves, and the horrors of high school has never been so hard.

The night of Samhain may be behind them, but Yuki and her friends have only begun to face the challenges of their paranormal gifts. Tensions are rising--in the pack, at school, and within their tightly knit group of friends.

The tragic death of Wakefield High student Dylan Jacobs has emotions boiling over. The J-Team, Yuki's arch nemesis, have turned the entire football team against her. They claim that Yuki is a witch and blame her for the death of their fellow teammate. Will Yuki be able to solve the mystery of Dylan's death, and the legend of Witchtrot Road, before tempers flare and things turn violent?

Emma is the friend that Yuki turns to when things get tough, but she's been behaving strangely. Emma has been acting distant and seems to be coming down with a mysterious illness. What will Yuki and her friends do if their healer is truly sick?

Calvin has become Alpha and wants the best for his pack. He is a dedicated and compassionate leader willing to do anything for the good of his people, but will Cal be able to hold the pack together when a fiery, young werewolf comes seeking revenge?

Simon may still be a roguish playboy, but he is taking his role as Calvin's second in command deadly serious. Will Simon be able to focus on his pack duties when he is forced to face his dark, emotional past?

My Thoughts

Note: Spoilers from Previous Books. You may want to read those first before reading this review, which I strongly suggest you do! No, I am not back to reading and reviewing books. I had written this review previously after I read Legend of Witchtrot Road in the beginning of the month and it was scheduled to be posted today.

So Yuki and the gang are back! Right now, I have to claim this one as the best in the series. This one stands out, I think, because of a certain change in the characters. I'm still in this happy haze after reading it a few hours earlier. 

Yuki is stronger than never before and still just as funny! She stands up for herself and tries hard not to let anyone take her down. Cal isn't that much in the sidelines. He's still as sweet as sugar, despite his new found taste for thrill and adventure (that may or not be caused by his wolf spirit). There is also some increasing sparks in between Simon and Emma. We also get to learn Simon's true age. 

The friendship between the characters was very heartwarming. In novels recently, I see friends betraying and doubting each other, with upsets me most of the time. It's great to see that this was one of the novels that still has true loyalty and friendship.

I expected more action for Simon and Gabriel. Gabriel just seems to be there. It doesn't look like he's all that important to the story. He throws out threats but doesn't act on them. 

Lastly, Ms. Stevens had emailed me about a novella coming out which will serve as a prologue to Yuki and Cal's relationship! I also searched Goodreads and found there is going to be a book 4 & 5! I'm so excited!


  1. I've never heard of this series before but I always love a book with a big cast of characters. There's so much more scope for great interaction and development. I'd be interested to see how it all goes about, especially since they all seem to be werewolves and witches!

  2. Oh also, have sent you an email re: Wolfborn giveaway.
