Third and final instalment in a middle-grade fantasy adventure about witches and forbidden magic from a beloved Irish writer.

Witches Borough is dying, and no one knows how to save it. Into this scorched landscape, storms a raggedy witch named Magda, trailing ashes in her wake. She wants Mup. She wants Mup to fulfil a promise. And woe betide any who stand in her way

Ahhh, I cannot believe that this story has come to an end. For the past two years, I have been followed Mup's and her family also her best friend, Crow on a journey to rescue Mup's dad and to fight the cursed by the queen and now, another curse hit the land again but in this time, the water disappear from the land. Mup needs to find a way to beat the curse.

I was very much invested in the story since the first book. To see how Mup has progressed throughout the story was amazing. She has always been my favourite character and I'm going to miss her. Now, the third instalment comes with another danger, another journey she needs to fight makes me not sit still in my seat as I need to know the reason why the land has been cursed again. Where is the water went? Would the people go to help Mup? All the answer is in this third book.

In this last instalment, the children start to come to the castle to learn magic. Mup is so excited to come to the class and making new friends but in that excitement, another curse/tragedy hits the water in their land start to disappear.

When I reach the ending of the story I know it is the time to let this book go. It was so hard because it is the third year I was given an opportunity to follow Mup's journey. It was such a long yet memorable journey. It was definitely very well written by the author. Thank you for writing such an amazing story. The Promise Witch is an exciting, magical, suspenseful, friendship, love and trust. Definitely recommend you read from the first book.
