Witch's Pyre by Josephine Angelini - ADVISABLE

Angelini, Josephine  Witch’s Pyre (Worldwalker Trilogy, #3), 376 pgs.  Feiwel and Friends, 2016.  $18.99  Content: Language: PG-13 (21 swears); Mature Content: PG; Violence: PG-13.  

Lily is a powerful witch with her loyal coven.  They find themselves living among the Hive, a city they have traveled far to reach but quickly they learn that the city has its own witch with evil intentions.  Lily has to outsmart the all reaching power of the Hive’s witch and combine her coven with Lillian’s in an attempt to free all of the oppressed people on the continent.  

This is the third and final book in the Worldwalker series and it has a satisfying ending.  The characters are likable and the idea is creative.  The world building is extensive but it makes sense.  The only way this book makes sense is if you can read the whole trilogy back to back, the author doesn’t bridge the novels and it was hard to remember what happened in the second one.  The violence is the witch burns on a pyre and there is some war violence.
