...The story itself is wonderfully creepy, and I was hooked from the first moment....

We meet Max on the bus to his grandfather’s house, having been sent away for the summer to help his mother make ends meet. From his first encounter with a disturbing stranger, the story moves swiftly to the apparently haunted house and crowds of strangers in black robes and that’s before the real plot even begins. The story itself is wonderfully creepy, and I was hooked from the first moment.

I’m not going to spoil this but readers of YA fantasy should definitely give this a read. It would be of particular interest to fans of the Tim and Two Witches, Harry Potter, or Magic in the Wind books, but the author has taken this familiar idea and made it entirely his own.

As regards presentation, this book has decent formatting, grammer and no annoying spelling errors or typos. There is nothing to distract or detract from the story.

Thoroughly enjoyable and I look forward to finding out more about Max.

  • Gaslight
    An easy to read and enjoyable short story for paranormal fans, and keep an eye out for future stories in this series.
  • Your Blood is a Lovely Colour
    A well written urban fantasy that doesn't pull any punches in the horror that such a monster brings.
  • A Murder of Crones
    anyone who enjoys good writing should give it a look, but horror, paranormal, fantasy and modern fairytale fans will adore it. For a real treat get this and the Secret Dead and read them back to back.
