It's all very well and good destroying the world, extinguishing any spark of hope, and ruling with an iron grip of fear and black magic. But nobody told the witch that running an administration of evil would be just so… dreary. Bored with solving little people's problems and the petty squabbles of her beastly advisors, the witch quits, leaving the world in a much worse state than she found it with a new evil quest. It's time to learn how to be a good person.
There's just one teensy-tiny little problem… Being good doesn't come easily – after all, it's much easier to sacrifice babies and summon hideous demons to get things done. Seeking out her old nemesis, a legendary-hero-turned-academic (who she only imprisoned and tortured a little bit), she gives him an outlandish proposition: to help her make a dazzling transformation from wicked witch to good. It's an offer he can't refuse. The odd couple have a long, perilous journey ahead of them and a lot of psychological hang-ups to work through.
Can an evil witch ever truly be reformed – and what could possibly go wrong when you're relying on your nemesis to be your BFF?
Reader's Favorite 5-Star Reviews
Divine Zape -"Witch'n features elaborately developed characters and fascinating world-building. The dialogues are well-written and the author’s meticulous care for plot elements infuses the story with great entertainment."
K. C. Finn - "Author Joshua Braun has crafted a completely enchanting work of fiction with plenty of wit to offer readers. One of the features which I found particularly impressive about this piece was its styling, voice, and attitude, which make the author just as important as the story in a way that Sir Terry Pratchett would be proud of. I adored the character development, dynamics, and tongue-in-cheek humor."
Ruffina Oserio - " Witch'n is well-plotted and the pacing is fast; there are twists that I didn’t see coming and the unpredictability in plot development makes the story a page-turning read. The descriptions are vivid and strong and from the very beginning, the reader is presented with horrifying images of the aftermath of evil magic. Joshua Braun’s novel is intelligently plotted and superbly executed."
Foluso Falaye - With an ingenious blend of dark humor and fantasy, Witch'n grabs the reader and holds their attention from start to finish. I couldn't put it down as I was arrested by the protagonist's energetic personality and her unbelievable evilness. It's nothing like I've seen before... prepare for a wild, dark, different, and memorable experience!"
