Overview

A short story prequel to The Witching Pen Novellas.

(This story takes place ten years before the events of The Witching Pen Novellas.)

Fifteen-year-old Elena hides her magical abilities from everyone, except her best friend, Karl. Inseparable since they were very young, they've always shared everything together, including the darkest parts of their lives.

Elena's beginning to realise that her feelings for Karl are growing into something more. But her mother's about to drop a bombshell on her – one that will change the course of her life, and heart, forever.

PUBLISHER'S NOTES:

This UK-based story is suitable for YA readers, but it should be noted that The Witching Pen Novellas series is aimed at adult readers.

For fans of the series, this story includes two parts of Elena's past that were made reference to in The Witching Pen: 1) The moment that Karl turns up on Elena's doorstep having been beaten and 'jumped on' by his father and 2) "The Sex Talk" between Elena and her mother.

Book length: short story (over 5500 words)

A SHORT story, but a lovely read. This was a great 30 minute short read for me. Wilted pretty much gives you some inside information about Karl and Elena and what she is told by her mother. Which if you read the novella The Witching Pen you get told in that one what happens if Elena has sex. You don't have to read this book first before The Witching Pen, but Wilted is a wonderful little story about the two main characters that are in the other book. This book is a little insight on Karl and Elena's relationship, and back when they were teenagers. You can just read the story and see that they love each other.

This is basically a 45 page teaser, not even a full story, I'd say just get the full book instead!

Like i said earlier i would write a review on how the book was. It has 54 pages and is hilar. in some parts. I would recomend this book between the ages of 15 or 14 and older. I really loved it and the ending left me hangin.

this is a fun peek into Elena and Karl's childhood... short, but sweet.

This was a nice little addition to The Witching Pen. It covers a short, but very important, period of time in Elena and Karl's past. The events are referenced several times in book one and it was fun to see how and why they became so important to both of them.

My review of Wilted by Dianna Hardy Rating 5***** Amazon Verified Purchase As a huge fan of The Witching Pen novellas, I had high expectations of this short. I was far from disappointed I must say. Wilted is the beginning of Elena and Karl's story while they were still kids. Here we see Karl battling his father's wicked abuse and Elena distancing her self from her mom. While these two drift further and further away from their families their personal relationship grows stronger and both feel an inner pull to each other. When Elena's mom runs down the responsibilities of a thirteenth generation witch, it leaves Elena devastated. Anger consumes her toward dear old mom. A division starts between the two that may never be healted..... Loved it!!!! It is one of the most poignant short reads I have ever layed my hands on!!!! Reivew by michelle mcqueen

Elena is 15 & getting a crush on her 17 year old best friend Karl. They've been friends forever. He was there the day her powers manifested as she brought to life a butterfly on the playground. She's always been there for him because his homelife is rough, drunk dad beating on him & his mom. He's always had a crush on her. Today is the day Elena's mom drops a horrible catch on Elena regarding her powers. Since this is a prequel...I'm now hooked into at least book 1... hopefully it's just as good & i'm hoping, seeing as book 1 is 10 yrs later, that Elena & Karl are still friends & life has worked out.
