Teen witch Rosamunde broke the spell her mother, Rosmerta, used to control her family and reported the illegal use of magic to the Faerie Court. So her mom became a fugitive from the law, taking Rosa's younger sister Akasha with her. When none of the faeries can track down her mother, Rosa realizes that she'll have to be the one to find her mom.
Rosa takes a dangerous risk: getting close to the mysterious exiled Unseelie who helped her mother go into hiding. To gain their trust, she'll have to break the rules. Her faeriekin friends, Ashleigh and Glen, and kitsune boyfriend, Kai, worry that she's getting in too deep. But for the chance to confront her mother and save her sister, Rosa will sacrifice anything . . . maybe even the things that she believes in the most.

Did I enjoy this book: I think Ms. Walker fell into one of the classic second-book-in-a-series blunders — she sacrificed a few rounds of editing to get things published more quickly. Her story was just as fun as the first (though this one tends to dwell more on teen relationship angst instead of cool magic stuff), but the grammatical errors and/or editing misses were significantly more common in book two. Witch Hunt is a great second installment, but Ms. Walker’s editing misstep cost her a star. Would I recommend it: Yep! If you liked the first one you’ll like this one, just be aware that it’s not as cleanly written. As reviewed by Melissa at Every Free Chance Books. Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Witch Gate is the final book to date in the Fae of Calaveras County series. Rosa has been given a task by the dragon guardian of the veil between the human and fairy world. A cape of nettles must be created by Rosa and her fae sponsor gives her the information necessary to weave the cape. Before the cape is completed her mother and younger sister tear open the veil between the fairy and human worlds and a search for a solution to the disruption this causes is sought by Rosa and her friends. By the end of this book Rosa has found a new love and her life seems to be back on track again…at least for the most part and for the moment. This is a well written story that incorporates the openness that is being found more often in society. In this story a witch may date a magikin, fairy or human and bisexuality is a given. Family is discussed and what family and friendship can and does mean varies from one person to the next within the story. Fun and filled with issues that made me think, this story is one I believe will appeal to teens. 4.5 stars
