Complicated Blue is a fantasy novel based in a world where all witches are not created equal, and the dead roam the streets. It is a witch’s job to help the dead find what their purpose in life was so that they can finally rest and leave the world to the living.
Our lead character Anais Blue is a witch who is trapped in the body of a five-year-old girl. As frustrating as this sounds she is given the task of helping a ghost regain their identity. Anais needs to discover her companion’s secret and true purpose before it is too late. This story leads us on an exciting and sometimes comical journey inside the witching world.
I particularly liked how the prologue explains the witching world and lets the reader know some of the truths and fallacies that surround what duties and services witches actually provide in this world. Anais’ character is developed through time, and as the book continues, we learn more of our beloved witch. It is really hard to weave together a great story with both adventure and comedic intervals, but this author leaves us both spellbound and laughing in our seat.
I found the literary standard of the work to be of good quality. The chapters and the layout of the book were well put together, and I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well-written fantasy novel.
