Today I am so excited to bring you the cover of Eva Evergreen and the Cursed Witch! Eva Evergreen, Semi-Magical Witch has been on my TBR ever since Julie Abe announced it! My library hold FINALLY came through and I blew through it in a day – talk about MAJOR Kiki’s Delivery Service vibes. If you love the idea of a charming middle grade story about believing in yourself with some witchery and cute fox pets, then this one is for you!
Eva Evergreen and the Cursed Witch
In this thrilling sequel to Eva Evergreen, Semi-Magical Witch, 12-year-old Eva must put a stop to the terrifying Culling or risk the fate of Rivelle Realm forever—perfect for fans of Kiki’s Delivery Service.
From this day forward, we will believe in the impossible.
Eva Evergreen has fulfilled her dream of earning the rank of Novice Witch and uncovered the chilling truth behind the mysterious Culling—the dangerous magical storm wreaking havoc across Rivelle Realm.
Revealing the truth, however, proves to be a difficult task, and soon the culprit is at large. To make matters worse, Eva discovers a possible connection between her pinch of magic and her mother’s own mysterious ties to the Culling.
With her spirits at an all-time low, Eva must gather the courage to prove her mother’s innocence and learn to believe in her own magic if she wishes to put a stop to the Culling once and for all.

Julie Abe’s Note on the Cover:
After the jaw-droppingly enchanting cover of Eva Evergreen, Semi-Magical Witch (Book One), I was so excited to see the cover of Eva Evergreen and the Cursed Witch—and Karina Granda (cover designer) and Shan Jiang (cover artist) created an extraordinary illustration that was beyond my wildest expectations. The beautiful details—Eva and Ember so close together, the crystal castle, the swirls of magic—charmed my heart and I hope readers will love it, too!

And if you wanna know what Eva Evergreen, Semi-Magical Witch is about….
A charming new middle-grade fantasy adventure, about a young witch whose pinch of magic just might be more than enough, perfect for fans of Kiki’s Delivery Service and Aru Shah and the End of Time.
Sometimes all you need is a pinch of magic…
Eva Evergreen is determined to earn the rank of Novice Witch before she turns thirteen years old. If she doesn’t, she’ll lose her magic forever. For most young witches and wizards, it’s a simple enough test:
ONE: Help your town, do good all around.
TWO: Live there for one moon, don’t leave too soon.
THREE: Fly home by broomstick, the easiest of tricks.
The only problem? Eva only has a pinch of magic. She summons heads of cabbage instead of flowers and gets a sunburn instead of calling down rain. And to add insult to injury, whenever she overuses her magic, she falls asleep.
When she lands on the tranquil coastal town of Auteri, the residents expect a powerful witch, not a semi-magical girl. So Eva comes up with a plan: set up a magical repair shop to aid Auteri and prove she’s worthy. She may have more blood than magic, but her “semi-magical fixes” repair the lives of the townspeople in ways they never could have imagined. Only, Eva’s bit of magic may not be enough when the biggest magical storm in history threatens the town she’s grown to love. Eva must conjure up all of the magic, bravery, and cleverness she can muster or Auteri and her dreams of becoming a witch will wash away with the storm.
