    1. This was a really great short story After reading The Witch s Daughter I decided that I had to read everything that Brackston has ever written The story goes very quickly, and I really enjoy how Brackston ties in fantasy with historical fiction.


    2. For me the best story is the one that leaves you wanting and with the Witches of the Blue Well Paula Brackston certaintly leaves you wanting to know about Mamgi and the Blue Well.This well constructed short is aided by thoughts on writing the Winter Witch of which we have the bonus of the first two chapters at the end of the Witches of the Blue Well and had me placing my order of The Witch s Daughter and the Winter Witch stright away.


    3. I know this was a short story and history, but I really wanted the rest of the story It is a good quick read I will be reading the full story of The Witches of the Blue Well.


    4. I loved this short story As always with Paula s books no matter the length of them I was completely captivated with the story You can read this either before or after The Winter Witch it doesn t really matter, but it s clear that this short story and The Winter Witch go hand in hand The Witches of the Blue Well tells the story of Ceri who wants nothing than for her ill sister to be well again, and she knows she has magic in her blood, but she just doesn t know how to use it It s when they come [...]



    5. Too shortI liked the way the story started, and the storyline in general If I were to recommend this story I would let the person know that it is extremely short That s why I gave it the three star rating.



    6. beautiful short story Paula brackston always paints the most beautiful images in your head when you read her books her writing is beautiful.


    7. The Witches of the Blue WellI am not quite sure how to categorize the books that Ms Blackstone writesParanormal Historical Whatever it is, it is interesting She has a cool way of writing the voice that her characters would use The witch in this story is young, just into her teen years, and faced with losing her family, all but her beautiful sister who is a bit older, but much fragile, to disease and famine Her Grandmother hints that she is a witch, but unfortunately, she dies before she can be [...]


    8. I loved Paula Brackston s The Winter Witch.This short story references a blue well and the main character of that novel finds it and uses it to become a powerful witch This prequel discusses the first witches who came upon the blue well and one witch in particular that harnesses it s power.The main character in this story is Ceri who has been told by her grandmother that she has magic in her blood A pestilence causes her to lose her entire family except for her sister Fleeing the sickness the tw [...]


    9. I read The Witches of the Blue Well awhile ago and was so impress I read the Winter Witch too I love how Ms Braxkston brings the Welsh countryside of the time into such sharp focus, the peoples ways and superstitions along with the incredible poverty makes me wonder how easy it would have been to be born into that era rather than the 20th century This was the first witchy book I have ever read, never thought I would like them but Paula Braxston is a gifted writer, I have gone on to read read eve [...]


    10. That was nice Bit of information as well as a short tale It s funny to think that Ffynnon Las could come about by two young teenagers and an old crone and like The Winter Witch it still spurred up my irritation and anger towards those that mistreat people who use gifts, even to help people I think that if there is truly magic in the world we should punish those that do harm with it and only if there is REAL evidence of the harm being caused by them.Woahh now Merlin feels are springing up again h [...]


    11. Great readThis author really has a great art of story telling I felt the sadness of loss, the hope of success and the joy of finding ones place on our beautiful planet After reading a teaser of The Winter Witch, I am off to download the full book and very excited about reading Morgana s tale.


    12. blue well rememberedIt was nice to have a little back story about the Winter Witch s origin The curing well in that book is the same in this one Morgana finds her magic in the blue well I love that Paula took the time to put this little bit down on paper Thanks Paula


    13. The Witches of the Blue Well Thoughts on Writing This book is a great follow up to The Winter Witch It explains the history of the Blue Well as well as the magic associated with it.



    14. The witches of the Blue WellVery short, sweet story Makes me want to read the next book The Winters Witch Recommended for all to read.
