- Witch Ball
I liked how Manny, Thorn and Dominic were present through all the book. I also really liked Amy's part in this book. Oh and I particularly enjoyed the part when Manny drives Sabine home hahaha. I didn't really like the whole witch ball idea, it was all weird to me, but that's a personal opinion. I think it was a bit far fetched, but I get that it was necessary to help Sabine know her gift better.
I loved Opal's role and presence in this installment, but I hate Sabine's lack of respect towards her. I get that she's her guide but she could speak to her without the attitude or without sending her away every time Opal doesn't answer her questions or doesn't give her direct answers. The whole point of guiding is letting your "student" learn by themselves, not feeding them all the answers like a spoiled child. Finally, it was a really good book but I thought it was too short, I don't really like Sabine's attitude and the witch ball idea didn't appeal to me.
These are the reasons why it's not 5 stars, but it is still well written and it was enjoyable. Beware, it ends on a cliffhanger! Personally, I don't mind but those of you who do, consider yourselves warned! Aug 08, Sandra La Madeleine rated it really liked it.

I'm in my late 20s so I am obviously not the target audience for this serie, but I can honestly say that if I were 15 today, I would've rated that 5 stars. That's the kind of books I enjoyed reading as a teen. I apologies in advance for my eventual mistakes as english is not my mother tongue Aug 21, Jayde Mackenzie rated it really liked it.
Omgoodness, I can't even right now! This book was good.
But really they didn't need to put that cliffhanger! Ok so I enjoyed this book, Don't get me wrong, but it just seemed a little different then the last three. Jun 28, Maryse Primeau rated it it was amazing Shelves: Turns out that ball is possessed by an evil ghost that refuses to let go. When the school organizes a fair with a divination stand, the ball ends up replacing a fake one and Manny Sabine's friend gave real predictions to three people Manny said that Sabine was going to die in less than a week.
She then tries to find the three people to know their predictions to see if they come true. They all came true. When comes the day of her "death", everyone around Sabine traps her in the house so nothing happens to her. When Sabine gets an email that her little sister ran away from their house to join her, she decides to go out while Nona isn't watching.
Sabine finds her sister Amy and she goes back home, but on their way back to Nona's, Dominic and Sabine get into an accident and Sabine dies. Opal, her spiritual guide, tells her that it's not the right time for her death so she comes back to life. Plus, there is never a boring moment while reading this book.
The action never stops. You always want to know what's going to happen next. Each book of the series has between and small pages with small chapters so you read through them super fast. I find that the first book is a good introduction to all the characters of the series.

Also, everything is really well-described and super easy to read. I've first read this series at 14 years old Now I'm 18 and I loved it even more than I did back then. I definitely recommend this series to anyone who loves a good story with non-stop action. Nov 09, Beth rated it liked it.

Sabine is a sympathetic and likeable character - everygirl with one little twist Newbies to the series will get wrapped up in the drama, while fans will enjoy continued character development and culminating storylines. The author provides just enough information to bring readers unfamiliar with the storyline up to speed. The writing is average, and the ending predictable, Singleton shines in creating eerie and suspensful scenes. The voice of Sabine is dead on, but The Seer books are a perfect readalike for fans of Meg Cabot's Mediator series; Witch Ball is sure to be a popular choice in public and school libraries serving teens.

Feb 21, Madyson F. This series is about a high school girl named Sabine who has physic abilities. In this book Sabine finds a witch ball and her grandma Nona told her to get rid of it because it was evil and Sabine refused to, she just hid it. But the school was having a carnival and they were going to set up a fortune teller booth and Sabine bought a plastic crystal ball.
But when the carnival comes she grabs the wrong ball, the witch ball. Sabine doesn't notice until after she had her prediction and her fortune was that she was going to die in 5 days by a person who loves her. Then Sabine noticed it wasn't the crystal ball, it was the witch ball.
There were 3 other fortunes told before her so she was determined to find out what they were. But if they came true that means Sabine's fortune would come true also. Now she only had 5 days to find out the other fortunes. I think this book was a really good book to continue on to the series.
I finished this book in a day so it was really good! I really like reading books with mysteries in them. My favorite character is Sabine. She is a really busy girl but has time for everyone! She has time for her boyfriend, her popular friends, her unpopular friends and even her grandma Nona. Which I really like because she is about to pass unless Sabine and Dominic find the remedy book which is Nona's medicine to heal her. Unfortunately, the remedy book is lost in the past but they are really close to finding it. Hopefully they will find it before Nona passes!
Jun 17, Kat rated it it was amazing Shelves: In five days, you will die. In the last book Sabine was given the Witch Ball, and in this one you find out it is haunted by vengeful spirit. And the three predictions before Sabine has happened, now it's time for Sabine to save herself from her death.

I think this one was great. Slowly but surely Sabine is becoming more open with her seer abil "Someone who loves you will cause your death. Slowly but surely Sabine is becoming more open with her seer ability, and I like that she is becoming more confident. The main high school problem for Sabine in this one, is the threat of Evan telling Josh about her past, and I was hoping he would, and that Josh would be horrified and then Sabine would realize her love for Dominic!!
But, alas, it did not happen so. But it was close enough. Dominic told Sabine how he felt about her when she was pretty much, almost, dead. Causing Sabine to realize her love for Dominic. Which made me super happy!! D But then there's Josh, who, just so happens to not believe Evan in his stories of Sabine's past, believing it to be lies. Anyways, the series is slowly getting better and more interesting, as the story progresses and Sabine slowly realizes her powers are not bad. And as Nona gets worse, the stakes are higher and Dominic and Sabine are more desperate to find the cure.
Oh my flipping gosh!! Feb 02, Lucia rated it really liked it. This one is definitely my favorite of the series so far. I said I liked the second more than the first, and now I like the third more than the second. I think there's a pattern going on This book definitely had the most "OMG. Especially when you find out that Sabine's going to die in five days.
That's not a good thing. At the end of the second book, Sabine is given a witch ball, which is just a glass ball that is supposedly harmless. It ke This one is definitely my favorite of the series so far. It keeps witches out. It doesn't keep ghosts out. At the beginning of the novel, Sabine and her friends are at the carnival, where Sabine's friend Mystic Manny Another of my favorite characters. He knows Sabine's secret, and even uses her sometimes to give somewhat true fortune tellings. So when he is accidentally given the witch ball to use as his prop at the carnival, he gives very true predictions.
Ones that seem ridiculous and very unlikely to happen. Until Sabine chases down the fortune-tellees and discover that they're coming true Terrified, Sabine is unsure what to do, because she can't even see the ghost that's hiding the witch ball. Well, you'll have to read to find out that happens next. Manny agrees and somehow ends up with the Witch Ball as his magical crystal ball instead of the fake one Sabine had purchased for his act.
Manny has no memory of giving any of the readings, so he and Sabine decide to track down the people Manny made predictions for and see if any of them came true. The books are short but they are nice reads. The stories stay interesting and the author always leaves you hanging at the end making you want more. So on to the next!
