The Hawkweed Prophecy - Irena Brignull

You would think that after all this time, people would know to do anything with prophecies, because it never works the way you planned. However, in The Hawkweed Prophecy, it has been prophecised that in 303 years, a daughter of a Hawkweed sister will lead the witches. This is considered extremely important, and of course one of the sisters will go just too far to ensure it will be her own daughter.


While it in principle was a nice story about two girls being switched at birth but looking for a place where they belong and people that will like them no matter who they are, it fell a bit short for me, especially in the fantasy part. The witches felt too much cliché for me and don't get me started on the love triangle which made me actually sigh out of frustration.


The writing of this - I suppose it's - Upper MG book was good, but the story didn't convince me as I hoped it would after reading a small part in the Buzz Books.


Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
