#BookReview for Hazel & Holly by @SaraCSnider #Giveaway

Synopsis: Nestled within an enchanted forest is the Grove, a community where witches and warlocks practice elemental magic, brew mystical potions, and lock their cellars against beer thieving gnomes. Life is quiet and uneventful. Well, except when Hazel's long-lost father uses necromancy to trap her dead mother's soul.

That simply won't do. Necromancy is forbidden in the Grove, and for good reason too. Nobody wants filthy corpses shambling around, mussing up one's garden. Hazel is determined to find her father and undo his treachery.

But despite Hazel's plans of becoming a one-woman army, she can't do everything alone. It's not until wild sister Holly convinces her to leave the house for once and go to a party that Hazel finds a pair of unlikely allies in two bickering warlock brothers.

Together, the four of them go on a journey that takes them out of the Grove and into a world where necromancy reigns and the dead won't respectfully stay in the grave. Hazel will do whatever it takes to stop her father and save her mother's soul. Even if it means turning to necromancy. Even if it means losing her friends. Because they would never help a necromancer. Would they?

My Review: OMG this was such a great book.  I really loved how the story unfolded and all the snark that is in this one.  It was about witches and warlocks and it was so full of snarkyness that I just fell so in love.  Snider brings to life a new world and amazing characters.  I really loved Tum and Chester and would love a story about them on their own. Maybe they team up to grab spoils.  

If you are looking for a new story to fall for then check this one out ASAP!!  Because I was laughing a lot during the story and it was just done so well.  

The story itself is not faster paced, it is a slow burn of story that I could not put down.  I think that for this one the slower story worked so much better than it being speedy.  Every part of this story has a meaning on why it's in there.  And Snider did a wonderful job bringing this story to life. 

The characters were great. I loved how a side character even mentioned about how the four main characters all had H names. Because that was the only issue I had when I first started this one.  Was keeping all the names right.  

I don't want to accident spoil anything for anyone else.  But I do want to say that although this is tech. an adult title you could totally read it as YA as well. Nothing really over the top happens so I would allow my 14 year old read this at the drop of a hat.  I am so happy I got the chance to read this one.
