Read Witchy Vol. 2

Read Witchy, Volume 2 (Witchy, #2)

Low on magic and on the run after committing the ultimate heresy of cutting one’s hair, Nyneve and her raven companion, Banana, head into an ancient forest in search of safe transport. However, when Nynever butts heads with the gruff and overbearing broom-maker Kaveh, she starts to wonder if she wouldn’t be better off in the hands of the Witch Guard.

Didn’t remember everything about the first volume but enough to follow along. We learn a little bit more about how magic works. There’s a bit of travel at the start, and a confrontation with some old friends, but most of the story is training, where the m.c.’s forced to persevere through failure and embarrassment. The fight with her old friends pushes her to change.

I like the bird friend. I appreciate that even the guards and “bad guys” are shown to be human, with weird friends you cover for. It’s cool this world is explicitly full of queer people of all stripes.
