I immediately connected with eleven-year old Willow Band, the baby-faced vampire with the sharp teeth and the kind heart. Willow is painfully aware that she is "different", because she was born as a human baby to her cool vampire parents, Alice and Dylan. Somehow Willow manages to straddle the border between the metaphysical and the mortal without alarming her human friends. Life can be frustrating and from the first sentence we know Willow doesn't have things easy.

' "Being a vampire really sucks." Willow bit into the postman without much enthusiasm. Mr Lightfoot's neck was rather sunburned and leathery." '

This book has many such LOL moments and the curdled mix of human nature (good and bad) and "the dark side" provides opportunities for black humour at which the author excels. The scenes at school are particularly entertaining, especially Willow's poetry and ballet classes. A good assortment of characters and the pacing is excellent.

The story develops on many levels, as Willow discovers her mother is hiding some awful secret and there are some vampire skeletons rattling in the ancestral vaults. The introduction of the sacred grove and the mystery centred on the ancient oaks of Uppsala grip the reader anew with a captivating adventure into classical Norse mythology, as Willow struggles to save her family from approaching doom.

A really great and unusual book.

6 Great Reasons to Read Willow the Vampire and The Sacred Grove

After years of studying Literature and Creative Writing, I have devised my own way of writing book reviews. I like to deconstruct the mechanics of the book to see what it really consists of. I particularly like to do this with children's books because sometimes, thankfully not a lot, writers think that they can just write any old thing simply because it is for children. This is not the case with Willow the Vampire and The Sacred Grove. As the title suggests, here are 6 great reasons why it should be read.

Reason 1 - Plot.
Willow Band is an eleven year old girl who loves animals, goes to ballet lessons and writes poetry. We might be fooled that this is just an ordinary girl but Willow is a vampire - worse still, a vampire with a difference. She was not born in the ordinary vampire way but in a normal human way. Even more bizarrely, Willow can go out in the daylight. As if that is not enough of a mystery, we find out that the Band family had to move quickly from London to the rural village of Stinkforth and Alice, Willow's mother has disappeared for days at a time, on occasion. As old documents are found, it becomes obvious that there is a deep secret attached to Willow's birth and Alice's past disappearance. When vampire men turn up in the village of Stinkforth things turn nasty and we find out that Alice and Willow have something which a ruthless, dastardly Count wants. With everything to lose, Willow must use both her brains and vampire strength to save her world as she knows it.
Reason 2 - Characters.
The characters in Willow and The Sacred Grove are served up to us as wickedly as the Band household serve up the local vicar or a banker.
