If your father's spooky old uncle died and left him a gigantic mansion full of beautiful antiques, you'd be thrilled right? Jen certainly is. Not only does she get to live in a kind of West Virginian castle, but there are lots of things to discover. For example, behind the house is a kind of free-standing tower. Despite her dad's warnings to keep away from it, Jen sets about exploring and finds a beautiful iridescent bottle the size of a softball hanging from the ceiling. This domestic happiness is short lived, however, particularly when Jen's dad starts dating an overly sophisticated antiques dealer by the name of Moura. Moura is fascinated with the contents of their uncle's home, but her real goal is to find something she calls a "witch catcher". A witch catcher that sounds suspiciously similar to the sparkly glass thing Jen already discovered.Read more ›
I wish I could write a story like that. I hope the author writes a sequel soon. I can't wait to read it.
the villains were just devious enough to keep him hooked. A good read.
tuation errors. Other than that I enjoyed the story.
Things would be perfect, except that Jen's father has a new woman in his life, the sinister antiques dealer Moura whom Jen dislikes from the very beginning. Moura appears to have a keen interest in the family home, especially in its contents. Meanwhile Jen has found something amazing, a beautiful glass globe which she prizes as a treasure. It is also the object that Moura seems to be looking for, something Moura terms "the witch catcher". Things start to go horribly wrong when Jen's cat breaks the glass globe unleashing not only an otherworldly entity, but also chaos as rival fae battle for dominance.
I loved how this story was written, with a perfect blend of Gothic mystery and suspense, high atmosphere, and adventure. Hahn even explains at the end how she came to be inspired to write this story. A wonderful and engaging read, young fans of the supernatural will especially relish this offering.
