We’re back with Carlie and the gang, keeping Halfway safe from paranormal activity. In the third instalment of the Halfway Witchy series, a century old curse is broken as Exit wakes up from a 100-year sleep and enlists Carlie’s help to find out exactly what happened to him and to locate his wife. In an unpleasant turn of events, Carlie, Gran and Exit wind up tracking down a pair of shape-shifter hunters who are up to no good. Meanwhile, Carlie’s boyfriend, Wulfric, has gone full vampire and it’s up to Carlie to find a way to bring him back. But what if dark blood magic is her only option?
I struggled a little bit when reading the second book in this series, but Halfway Hunted is back to Maggert at his finest. Carlie is as feisty and likeable as ever, while the supporting characters, including the new addition of Exit, are eccentric and fun. This story has better pacing than the last, with less talk and more action, and an intriguing plot. It’s a light and easy read but, while it wouldn’t be necessary to read the previous books, I would definitely recommend it.
