WITCHLIGHT by Marion Zimmer Bradley

This was my introduction to Marion Zimmer Bradley. The story was not at all what I thought it was going to be, but I enjoyed the book nevertheless. Bradley's writing is clear and concise and brings you right into the scene and into the characters minds and who they are as people.

Winter Musgrave is a strong heroine, on the search for a part of her past she has repressed and therefore forgotten. She is strong enough to figure it out and face up to it and come out a better person for it in the end. If only all female characters could be as badass (I'm talking to you Bella Swan. ;))

The book had more of a psychic leaning then a witchy one (which is what I thought it would be more about; more magickal practices and based in paganism), but as I said before, I still completely enjoyed the book. Definately recommended
