The Black Witch Chronicles series written by author Laurie Forest is comprised of a total of 3 novels and 2 novellas, which were released between the years 2017 and 2018. One novel and one novella of this series are expected to be published soon, while the third novel is an untitled project, which author Forest is going to start working on soon. The debut book of this series is entitled ‘The Black Witch’. It was released by the Harlequin Teen publication in the year 2017. Author Forest has mentioned the primary characters in this book in the form of Elloren Gardner, Carnissa Gardner, and several others. At the start of the book’s story, it is shown that Carnissa Gardner is the last of the prophesied ‘Black Witch’, and Elloren Gardner is her granddaughter. Using her powers as a Black Witch, Carnissa had driven back the evil forces of the enemies and had helped save the Gardnerian people at the time of the Realm War.

Elloren Gardner looks like the exact copy of the famous Carnissa Gardner, but she lack the witch power. So, she feels left out in her society that seems to value the magical abilities above everything else. After some time, Elloren Gardner gets an opportunity for pursuing her dream of turning herself into an apothecary. She grabs this opportunity with both hands and goes on to join the prestigious University of Verpax along with her brothers. Elloren wishes to make her own destiny, away from Carnissa’s legacy’s shadow. But, after a short while at the university, Elloren realizes that she has come to a place full of treachery. The university takes in all types of people, including the fire wielding sworn enemies of the Gardnerians and turns out to be a very unsafe place for Elloren Gardner, Black Witch’s granddaughter. The evil continues to rise and approach Elloren. She begins to feel the pressure of keeping up with the heritage of her grandmother and experiences that all that she held very close to herself are about to get challenged & torn away in the most difficult ways. However, there is a glimpse of hope for Elloren by joining the most unlikely group of misfits, but she is required to trust and have faith in the ones that she has been taught to fear and hate.

Another exciting book penned in this series by Forest is called ‘The Iron Flower’. It is also taken up for publication by Harlequin. Once again, the lead character is depicted as Elloren Gardner, and she is joined by other important characters like Yvan Guriel, Lukas Grey, Marcus Vogel, etc. At the beginning of the story of the book, it is depicted that Elloren Gardner sets herself to the task of righting some wrongs and takes the help of her friends. The course of action taken by her makes Elloren and her friends join the ranks of a realm wide Resistance. This Resistance seems to struggle because of the harsh ruling of Mage Council and Marcus Vogel, the High Priest. Soon, Elloren realizes that if Gardneria were to seize the control of the entire Western Realm, it will put all those she loves and cares about in a great danger. The tension continues to heat up in Verpacia and it is followed by the continuous descending of a large number of Gardnerian soldiers upon the university.

The soldiers are led by the new commander of the base of the Fourth Division, Lukas Grey. Elloren tries to keep herself at a distance from him, but he always tries to wand-fast to her. He seems pretty much convinced that Elloren has inherited all the magic of her grandmother. Being near to Lukas Grey causes the awakening of a dark force inside Elloren, which makes it difficult for her to believe that she is devoid of any power, as claimed by her uncle. As the events unfold later on, Elloren finds herself caught between her feelings for Yvan Guriel, a rebel soldier, and Lukas Grey’s seductive powers. She understands that it is very important for her to find a solution to the current problem and make the best use of her powers for protecting her close ones.
