General Theme | Plot Character Development
I originally decided to read the Wiccan Waltz because I am of that religion, and it is always interesting to see how someone will portray it. I only wish that Vishnoi would have kept the spelling of magick with a “k” consistently throughout the short story.
As many of the paranormal books that I have read as of late, the Wiccan Waltz is told through the first person POV. Even for a short story, the pacing was too quick for my liking. As I read, it felt as if I was constantly barraged with scene changes at times.
I did like how Anika decided to seriously study Wicca. I do not want to give it away, but I am sure that there are some practitioners that have become Wiccan because of it.
I found it hard to like Anika. She seemed to eager and naive. There were times that I was shaking my head at her reactions.
I think that this was written for someone younger than myself. As nice as some of the characters were, I could not relate to them, but I think that someone younger. I would recommend the Wiccan Waltz to someone ages 13 to 15 years of age.
