Book Summary

You think you know the world of magical boarding schools? Not from a teacher's perspective at a school for at risk youth.

Like any twenty-two-year-old who grew up obsessed with fantasy novels, Clarissa Lawrence expects all her Harry Potter fantasies to come true when she is invited to teach at a school for witches. Her dreams of learning magic--and being a good teacher--are complicated when she finds out her deceased mother was the equivalent of the Wicked Witch of the West. As if being the new "arts and crafts" teacher isn't hard enough at a school for juvenile delinquent witches, budget cuts are just as severe in the magic community, administrators are as unrealistic in their expectations of teachers, and the job is a hazard if the students find out you can't actually do magic.
Amidst all these challenges, Clarissa must prove she's not her mother's mini-me and that she belongs at the school so she can learn to control her powers. If she fails, her powers will be drained, or worse yet, she might be enslaved by the Fae.

As if this isn't enough pressure, she has to figure out why teachers are mysteriously disappearing. If she doesn't, she might be next.

This is the third book in the WOMBY'S SCHOOL FOR WAYWARD WITCHES Series, but the first three books can be read in any order.


5 Stars, Harry Potter on Steroids
WOW!! Fun story of a new Witch who is teaching at a school for witches- think Harry Potter on steroids!
. . . . This is the best one yet! I hate to finish these books as they are so much fun to read. More please.

5 Stars
This book is about the teachers, not the students. It takes place in a school where students sent to detention are chained in the dungeon. And the new art teacher, Clarissa, carries a (prohibited) cell phone to ward off the Fae.

5 Stars
Excellent supernatural cozy mystery
I enjoyed this book. Sarina Dorie created a well-paced, fun story. The characters are well developed and the action scenes very good. The mystery worked well. Although it is the third book of the series, it read seamlessly as a stand-alone. I recommend it as a fun read for fans of the genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars, Great Book!
This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. The story flowed very well and was very enjoyable. This book will keep you reading long into the night and you will not want to put this book down until you finish. This was such a great read and full of surprises. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader’s copy of this book. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

5.0 out of 5 stars, Another great book by Sarina Dorie
Witches Gone Wicked works in a way that embraces youthful language and play with concepts, without overdoing it. The book is an entertaining read from science fiction/fantasy avenue, and the author has published short stories widely, honing her craft and bringing her talent clearly on display here. This is the first book I have read by Sarina Dorie, but I would gladly read another.

4.0 out of 5 stars, Highly recommended for lovers of humorous, adult fantasy.
Yet another fun read from Sarina Dorie, as we continue to follow Clarissa's (mis)adventures at Womby's School For Wayward Witches. Unlike Hogwarts, Womby's is a reform school for juvenile delinquents, the students (and teachers) of which mostly revel in the opportunity to take advantage of Clarissa as she tries to find her place in the magical world. I would highly recommend this series to lovers of humorous, adult fantasy.
