Synopsis:  Before Sam Baron broke Odin's curse on the witches to become the first son born to a witch and the hero of the Legends of Orkney series, his mother was a young witchling growing up in the Tarkana Witch Academy. In this first book of the prequel series, the Witches of Orkney, nine-year-old Abigail Tarkana is determined to grow up to be the greatest witch of all, even greater than her evil ancestor Catriona. Unfortunately, she is about to fail Spectacular Spells class because her witch magic hasn't come in yet. Even worse, her nemesis, Endera, is making life miserable by trying to get her kicked out. 
When her new friend Hugo's life is put in danger by a stampeding sneevil, a desperate Abigail manages to call up her magic―only to find out it's unlike any other witchling's at the Tarkana Witch Academy! As mysteries deepen around her magic and just who her true parents are, Abigail becomes trapped in a race against time to undo one of her spells before she is kicked out of the coven forever!

Rich in Norse mythology, The Blue Witch is the first of a fast-paced young reader series filled with magical spells, mysterious beasts, and witch-hungry spiders!

“Bright, brave characters star in this exhilarating tale of magic and mystical creatures.” ―Kirkus Reviews  

My Review: If you have read The Red Sun then you are in for a treat becuase this one has a lot of things that happen in that book. So you get some really nice connections between the two series.  I really ejoyed finding those. This one has a really Harry Potter feel to it which really made me love it even more, since I LOVED Harry Potter.  This one also reminds me of a tv show that was out ages ago called The Worst Witch.  So if you really like magic and magical schools then check this one out.  I loved the journey and can't wait to get the next book in the series.  Although this one is way short and middle grade it was so worth the read! 

I loved the characters and what everyone went through I don't want to give anything away. But Abigail was my favorite she was so smart and clever and I loved how she dealt with the bullies. Even if you haven't read The Red Sun you should totally pick this one up!
