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.
I'm just so blessed to have been chosen to read 'ARC' for this story. It's the first in a new series by Ms. O'Flynn. The story itself is on pre-order on Amazon and release date in February 20, 2017, which happens to be my birthday.
Ms. O'Flynn is quite the story teller. She casts an enchanting spell on her words that magically transports you into her magical world. I was sucked into the pages with her vivid details of betrayal, family, friends, and secrets. I was so entranced that I found myself at the end quickly. Now I gotta' wait for the next book to come out to see what happens next for Wavy and Niall.
Niall and Wavy meet under stressful times. Both are witches. Niall's family is outcasted due to an event that happened before he was born. His family has been trying to reclaim their family honor and they will go to any lengths to achieve this. Wavy is from a prominent family of witches that have basically isolated her to home due to her rare ability. She sees ghosts. They will try to find out what happened 18 years ago, they will be protective for one another against those involved. What happens next you might ask? Get the book, read it, and then you'll know.
I found the pace of this story to be fast and steady with just enough detail without overloading. Characters were realistic. I could feel the raw emotions that each character portrayed. Lots of twists and turns, and magical facets that is delightful.
I recommend this story for those who are looking for a new series that deals with the supernatural facets, as well as, being suspenseful. This story will leave you wondering what happens next in this series.
Von Abendroth sipped his coffee. “You know, Gregor struggled with his eidolar ability. Much in the way that you have.” “I know. I wrote about it in his journals.” It brought her a thrill to have something in common with her father.
In the second line it should be He not I....... This is in The last chapter.
I so look forward to reading the rest of this series as they come out.
I couldn't get enough of this story and was sad to see it end.
I love how the emotions of all the characters are captured and the way I connected with them. If my computer was fully up and not just partially I would write a more in-depth review. It's a slow process of rebuilding a computer when it goes down for the count.
I can't wait for the rest of this series... This is an awesome Series.
