My normal love is Contemporary Dark Fiction or Speculative Fiction. I’m not a “YA” guy.
Ghosts of Witches Past (Witches of Tower Hill, #1) by Corinne O'Flynn is a Ghost story. But it’s also a mystery story—with a past and present that are locked together. I enjoyed the ride, here. It reminded me of the days when a new “Three Investigator” or “Hardy Boy” book would be released.
Like those books of my youth, I devoured Ghosts of Witches Past in one sitting.
Both the paranormal elements and mystery elements combine to take the reader on a rollercoaster journey that, in some instances, surprised me. And that was a very neat thing. Sometimes the first book of a series can get bogged down in world-building or in elaborate settings that are more dull then fanciful. O’Flynn dumps us into the world and hits the accelerator. It’s up to the reader to catch up—and I loved that.
But for a YA novel, the one thing that caught me off-guard was the relationship and depth to the characters—especially Wavy and Niall. Both characters are obviously well thought out and I look forward to getting to know more about them as the series progresses.
The writing is superb and the editing okay. It was an ARC, of course so I expected that. But I was pulled out of the story once by a plot twist that was…too twisty, shall we say. I believe this will be corrected in the final version but a star off because nobody is perfect and I want to see how the final copy and the series develop.
Over all, fun stuff. Pick up a copy and judge for yourself.
Watcher of the Veil - Intriguing! This is not my first book by O'Flynn and I'm not sure if I've read Manifold previously, but WotV is an excellent read. It is a well written, fast paced suspense with interesting characters and a twisting plot. The book is mesmerizing; if you've ever read J. Hinchey or J. Butcher, you know what I mean - you can't put the book down! I do wish I knew which books/short stories I should have read (listed in book) before reading WotV; I felt like I was missing something, a foundation. But not reading them, didn't take away from this story. The last couple of chapters were a little weak/different from the rest of the story, which while not a cliffhanger, does suggest more is to come. Duh!
Marigold's Tale - Has a preview, which I appreciate knowing in advance before reading a book. This prequel introduces us to Marigold, a witch, and the story behind her missing sister and the attack against Marigold and her loss. This is the third story I've read by Ms. O'Flynn and she hasn't disappointed me with her writings.
At first I thought it wouldn't be but it is so I'll let you know when I finish what I thiught
