      (3.5) I'm going to do a full video review on this book, but know that I really liked this book! It isn't perfect by any means, but I see it's potential & I'm looking forward to seeing this trilogy play out.

    2. Christine Riccio on said:

      This is really close to four stars like 3.89. It was just hard to get into initially so I feel like I can't give it the full four stars, but it was definitely a really interesting, different take on witches and I enjoyed that aspect of it alot. Here's my full review: youtube/watch?v=vRXrM

      It is not in my nature to turn away. Not I - I look my nightmares in the eye. And if my nightmares should look back, they see nothing but shadow. I am not there. 4.5 stars! Fantastic!Julia Vanishes plays in a world much like our own in the early 20th century, except that magic is deeply rooted in the world's history and violently persecuted in the present. Witches wield power by writing out their wishes in ink; if discovered they are publicly drowned for witchcraft. Julia's mother suffered that [...]

      “I look my nightmares in the eye. And if my nightmares should look back, they see nothing but shadow.”This book was wonderful and sadly it looks like it is going to be an underrated gem. You can find this review and all of my other reviews at Novel Descent Thanks for the support!How does this book have under 500 ratings on ?!?!?!?! Seriously? Where is the hype on this one!!!! I remember hearing about this book earlier this year on most-anticipated lists on bloggers sites and by Booktubers bu [...]

      What an intriguing fantasy world, and a great main character, too. In a world different and yet not so terribly different than our 19th century world (where the witch trials remain, because there really are witches) a merry little gang of thieves and con artists become involved in something much, much bigger.

    6. Olivia (The Candid Cover) on said:

      4.5 StarsJulia Vanishes is one of the most epic books I've read in a while. This fantasy novel has everything--witches, a spy, thievery, and a main character who can vanish. What I especially enjoyed was the original way that the witchcraft was incorporated. I adored this book and would definitely recommend it.Julia Vanishes is such a unique novel! This book is all about a girl who pretends to be a maid so she can spy on the people in the house. This book contains witches, magic, and thievery, t [...]

      When Julia was a small child her mother was torn away from her. Living in a city that had banned all forms of magic Julia's mother was drowned in a public cleansing when it was found out that she was a witch. Julia discovers that she is not like her mother but she does have her own ability, she can be what she thinks of as unseen, not invisible exactly but outside of other's senses. As Julia got older she decides to use her ability to become a thief and a spy as she's found out that crime pays a [...]

    8. Maja (The Nocturnal Library) on said:

      Julia Vanishes is best labeled as historical fantasy with a distinct Victorian feel. Julia lives in Spira City, where servants are generally illiterate, witches are killed publicly and regularly, and propriety is the highest priority for everyone. Egan provides wonderful descriptions of Julia’s surroundings, without them being a burden for the narrative. While not exactly atmospheric, Julia Vanishes is deeply dependent upon its detailed setting. Julia has the marvelous ability to remain unseen [...]

      I really enjoyed this one. It had a bit of a steampunk feel to it. The story sucked me in and kept me interested all the way through. The characters were interesting and well developed. The magical element and World building was unique and done well. It doesn't end on a cliffy, but it is left in such a way as I'm sure we'll be seeing a book two eventually.Overall, a really delightful read.

      Eine sehr facettenreiche Geschichte, es passieren viele spannende Dinge!

    11. Vita Mia Orfeo on said:

      Let's start by saying that Spira City, a world with witches and peculiar creatures did not seem real at all to me. It seemed like a joke.The city is described as if it came out from the Middle Age, a time where the fear of witches was "real". This is okay. But then these witches turn out to be real witches (at least most of them), and wolf-men and other weird creepy creatures are real too and they seem so modern that I could't quite picture them in a city like that. It didn't all blend well toge [...]

      4.5/5What a fabulously witchy start to a new trilogy! I'm deep into my obsession with YA novels about witches (Engelsfors, Lovegrove, the Witch Hunter) and this is a great addition to my list of favorites. Julia is an imperfectly tough and take-no-shit narrator. She's refreshingly cynical and not afraid to make the hard romantic decisions so many YA protagonists seem to have difficulty with. The supporting cast (other criminals, ancient entities, and lots of WITCHES :D), magic system, and world- [...]

    13. Amy on said:

      Would have been 5 stars except for the COMPLETELY POINTLESS and INFURIATING attempted rape. PLEASE, authors, can we stop with this?! You can't think of any other situation that would show a heroine in danger? You are normalizing a very serious issue and turning it into a trope. It's plain old bad writing. Other than that, I really loved this book!! Like, really loved it! Had some slow spots but I loved the characters and loved Julia. A great start to a great series. That's why I'm still upset ab [...]

    14. Helen on said:

      I'd put off reading this repeatedly and now I can't decide why I did so! It was great. Initially the first person, present felt odd but you quickly settle in and become inexplicably stuck, unable to leave. Dishes remain unwashed. TV remained almost unwatched. Fret not, I ate :)Julia is undercover, not knowing who she's working for or what she's looking for. The job just seems to get more mysterious too. And dangerous. It feels as though danger surrounds and threatens from all sides. This is the [...]

    15. Amanda on said:

      3.5 rounded up. After a somewhat slow start this really takes off and I'm excited to see where the trilogy is going to go.

      **You can see this full review and more at Book Briefs: bookbriefs**I have been totally loving reading books in a series back to back. This is the summer of the binge read for me. So I decided to do that with books one and two in the Witch's Child series. So this is a combined review for books one and two in the Witch's Child series by Catherine Egan.The first two books in the Witch's Child Series by Catherine Egan are Julia Vanishes and Julia Defiant. The books got a beautiful new cover change [...]

      Rating 3 StarsThis book was very on the meh spectrum for me. It was an interesting plot and all but it felt like there was gaping holes and that the characters fell super flat.I think setting is a good place to start that was really not doing anything for me. So its a Victorian type of place called Spira City. Interesting but how did this city come to be and when did everyone start worshiping the nameless one(God) and fear Kahge (which is basically another name for God and Hell). And why is witc [...]

    18. Tori Thompson on said:

      THIS BOOK.God, this book.The June release date on this book feels like a personal offense. I saw this sitting on our shelf of ARCs months ago, and picked it up thinking that it sounded like something I would really enjoy; but the publication was dated for quite a ways away, so it went on my post-December-release shelf and sat there for a couple of weeks. I grew bored and disinterested with all of the books I had on my now-through-December shelf, so I decided to let myself try something further o [...]

    19. Logan Price on said:

      I don't feel that this book got enough hype after it was released so please allow me to hype you!!!! This book is SOOOOOOOO good. It is mysterious, plot driven, still has good character development, non-cheesy "romance" that doesn't take over the character, strong female lead, thievery, a dystopian feel, witches, magic, high fantasy, and so on. If any of these is something you enjoy reading READ THIS. Some people who have read this feel that the author didn't go into Julia's vanishing as much as [...]

    20. Annika on said:

      Julia Vanishes is thoroughly enjoyable, and a brilliant story. The world-building is interesting, the story full of surprises, and the character growth remarkable. The world Catherine Egan paints for us has a history and a strong character to it. It's extremely intriguing. Regardless of the many different elements in the story, it all wraps up nicely into one mystery, and the reader is left with questions for the next novel in the series. Absolutely cannot wait for the next instalment!

      I should've just DNFed it earlier :/ My problem with this book is that it was extremely boring for me. It had a promising premise and ideas of great potential, but everything ended up in ruins.

      Eine Julia aus Spira Sorry, ich bin beim besten Willen nicht objektiv genug für dieses Buch xD

      another time maybe - this is not the right kind of book to get out of a reading slump

    24. AO on said:

      Julia spies. Julia steals. Julia vanishes. I adored this book. Julia reminded me of a grown up Lyra Belacqua, stubborn, with a hundred faults, but brave and willing to own up to and fix her mistakes.A professional spy and thief, Julia poses as a housemaid to spy on the mysterious Mrs. Och and her strange houseguests, including a disgraced professor with a collection of forbidden books, a man who locks himself in the basement at night, and a woman and child who are being hunted by a sinister bein [...]

      Καλό ως προς την σύλληψη της ιδέας, ωστόσο, πολύ κακή αξιοποίησή της, με μια κεντρική ηρωίδα κουραστική και σπαστική πολλές φορές, με την πλοκή να έχει πολλές τρύπες, χωρίς να καταφέρνει να διατηρήσει το ενδιαφέρον μας μέχρι τέλους. Προσωπικά δεν βλέπω πως μπορεί να εξελιχτε [...]

      Julia desaparece es una historia que le da un nuevo significado al arte de la magia y cuyo final dejará con las ganas de cualquiera por leer la segunda parte. Asesinatos, robos, brujería y una protagonista carismática y deshonesta.Reseña completa en THE BEST READ YET BLOG

    27. Krissysch on said:

      Dieses Buch hat mich total überrascht. Richtig spannend, tolle Abenteuergeschichte, bisher nur der Hauch einer Liebsgeschichte und tolle Charaktere. Auch die Welt hat mir richtig gut gefallen und ich hoffe, dass wir auf Band 2 nicht mehr lange warten müssen!

    28. Julia on said:

      Mit Schattendiebin entführt uns Catherine Egan in eine fantastische Welt, die wie das viktorianische Zeitalter gestaltet ist. Hier verknüpft sie die tolle Atmosphäre der Epoche mit magischen Elementen, einer mysteriösen Sache, der die Protagonistin Julia auf den Grund gehen soll, Hexenverfolgungen und der ungewöhnlichen Gabe von Julia selbst und konnte mich von der ersten Seite an absolut fesseln. Aus meinem Eingangssatz konnte man schon raushören, dass ich die Wahl der Epoche, nur eben be [...]
