Herb-Witch - Elizabeth McCoy

Everywhere I've looked, this book is tagged as "fantasy" and "romance." At best, this is fantasy with romantic aspects, although the ending may have stomped even that to pieces. I'm so disappointed right now. I'm going to have to sit and think for a while before I can write my review. I'm not even sure what rating I'm going to go with.


I bought both books in the duology at the same time - a good thing, I guess, since this isn't a self-contained story. I hope that Book 2 manages to be more satisfying, both in terms of the story and the romance (?).
