I honestly have NO idea how anyone saw this book as a racist book.
It is indeed about racism in this imaginative society.
It is about an inherently bred racist girl and her racist friends who break norms and see through the hate down to the heart of species different but equally similar to their own.
It is about a girl who after being nasty and horrible realizes she was wrong and dedicates herself to righting those wrongs and helping others in need even when others don't...nay refuse to see beyond their haze of hate and prejudice.
How anyone can view this book as racist Is quite honestly beyond me. Enough of this! Time to get down to the meat of this review!
The black Witch is a narrative which follows sheltered Elloren Gardener, granddaughter and exact younger replica, of the previous and widely famous Black Witch.
Elloren suddenly finds herself in her aunt's care prior to starting at The University with her brothers.
Elloren is beyond excited, however, her Aunt Vivian has other plans. Well... just one, really: That Elloren wand fast (aka magical binding marriage) to the elusive bachelor Lukas Grey who has taken a keen interest in Elloren. The situation essentially plays out like this:
Aunt: "Marry him Elloren!"
