Review: Eva Evergreen and the Cursed Witch by Julie Abe

Eva Evergreen and the Cursed Witch continues a precious story about being guided by our heart and speaking our mind. Even more sure of who she is, can Eva manage to use her voice and her magic in the face of the rest of the witch community? Will her past be enough to speak for her? Keep reading this book review for my full thoughts.


Eva Evergreen has fulfilled her dream of earning the rank of Novice Witch, and discovered the chilling truth behind the mysterious Culling — the violent 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 learns what might be the horrible truth behind her pinch of magic and her mother’s own mysterious connection to the Culling and rogue magic.

With her spirits at an all-time low, Eva must muster up 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.

I’ve been looking forward to this sequel ever since the ending of Eva Evergreen, Semi-Magical Witch! And I loved every moment of it! Eva is passionate, loyal, and loving. Immediately beginning with action, Eva Evergreen and the Cursed Witch is a story about doing the right thing. About making difficult decisions and sacrifices for the community and the people we love. Continuing threads from the first, Abe has only introduced more intrigue and magical creatures!

What I love about Eva Evergreen and the Cursed Witch is not only how fantastic Eva is, but also how it examines if we let ourselves be motivated in selfishness of our own gain. What becomes the difference between who we are and who we show the world? Because there’s a valley between the pieces of ourselves we show. The fragments of us we nurture and trim. And Eva must not only figure out what will define her, but what defines those around her. All in all, Eva Evergreen and the Cursed Witch is a wonderful addition to my middle grade favorites.
