    A fun fantasy adventure!

    Hazel and Holly is a fun and rolicking adventure through magical woods, mystical spells, and finding hope in unlikely places. Hazel and Holly are sisters who share a home in the Grove, a wonderfully slow and magical place where magic is divided into schools such as Hearth and Wyr, each with their own special focus. When the sisters are invited to the home of Hawthorn and Hemlock, warlocks and very eligible bachelors, Holly is insistent on their attendance. Hazel, on the other hand, would rather stay home and away from the nosey gossips who spread nasty rumors about their family and their father’s dabbling in Necromancy. Necromancy is the one magical discipline that is not tolerated in the Grove. But Holly wins and the sisters attend the ball and true to fashion, nothing goes as planned. The one bright moment from the disastrous night is a new alliance with the brothers. With their help, the sisters might finally be able to track down their father and free their mother’s soul that has been entrapped for years. Together, the witches and warlocks face one obstacle after the other, and all the while, they become closer and better friends with every mishap. With the help of a magical mouse, Holly’s innocent eagerness, Hemlock’s dry humor and reluctance to dirty his clothes, and Hazel and Hawthorn’s focus and planning, the group sets out to find the secret hiding place of the necromancers. Unfortunately for our adventurers, nothing ever goes as planned or remotely close to easily. Their one promising link to their father, a necromance named Elder, betrays them. Spells misfire, intentions are misinterpreted, and along the way, they pick up a cellar gnome with a penchant for beer who turns up in the most unlikely of places. Full of humor, magic, and adventure, Hazel and Holly was a fun and entertaining read. Thank you to Netgalley and the Publisher for the opportunity to read and review this title. All opinions are my own.

    A fabulous fantasy, that I highly recommend.

    I really enjoyed this book! My only tiny problem was the four main characters all having names that start with H. At times my mind would just get confused, and I would have to stop and remind myself the oldest siblings have HA names, and I would sort myself out for awhile. But don’t let this stop you from reading Hazel and Holly, and hopefully enjoying it as much as I did. This fantasy, which I can see becoming a series, has all the essentials to make it epic. A witch with an impossible mission, learning more about herself and being tempted into great evil. Throw in an entourage of friends, each with unique abilities and insights, and you get a fast paced, very entertaining story. Sara Snider does a fantastic job with the world building. There are numerous books and movies that I’m sure people will compare this story to, but for me, I kept thinking of the movie Labyrinth. I think my mind equated searching for a baby brother, with Hazel looking for their father, and Hoggle reminded me of their cellar gnome, Tum. Snider also does a wonderful job with the character’s development. Even the secondary characters are well rounded, and not just used in the story for filler. The four main characters continue to grow throughout the book, and I hope she continues this into a series, because I would love to continue getting to know them. A fabulous fantasy, that I highly recommend.

    Great fun read

    I really enjoyed reading Hazel and Holly. I found it well written with great characters. I especially loved the sisters Hazel and Holly and also Hawthorn and Hemlock. I loved the adventure and magic throughout the book and you even had some humor. I recommend reading this book, it’s a really fun read!!! (I received this book as an arc and am leaving a voluntary honest review)
