This definitely rates as a 5 star with my hubby!! It is very fast paced and good!
This is the firest of 3 books in the Wendy Ward saga of fighting witches and monsters.....and not the type of witches you are used to, these are very dark and scary ones. They were supposed to make a movie version but it still has not happened. Great books.....too bad the author never shined like he did with these 3.
found this story hard to put down.
This was a pretty good book - not the best I've read in this genre, but certainly not the worst. It would have been nice to have had more background on the witches - maybe alternating chapters could have been used. I loved the story idea, and the fact that the main Wiccan wasn't perfect and made mistakes, and I especially liked how the text wasn't filled with her lusting after every man she came across (and the accompanying descriptions of "rippled abs" and chiseled thighs, etc. ad nauseum).
Wither was a great read. The imagery and suspense combined to create vivid pictures in my mind as I was reading it, so it was as if I was actually watching a movie and watching the scenes unfold before my very eyes.
If you like paranormal thrillers..this is the book for you. Three people are having nightmares of a danger approaching. And then an innocent woman's channeling ritual lets open an ancient gate by accident. A gate meant to be never be opened. And as the gate opens, a horde of demonic creatures decends on the unaware town of Windale, Massachusetts. Can the wrong be righted? Finding the right spell could be hard but it could work. Find out how by reading the book.
Debut book by this author excellent read keeps you
reading until the very end.
Loved it! Great scary story.
Surprisingly good. I would recommend to any fan of horror.
Good read, but not a re-read for me.
Finished this in one day, I couldn't put it down.
Great book set in new England and dealing with Witches.
Strange story about paranormal and witchcraft - pretty good reading - story takes palce in small town in where 3 women were hung for witchcraft and murder in the 1800's. They in turn bestowed a curse on the town which has now re-surfaced. The story revolves around 3 women of the current time who become possessed by the older witches. There also seems to be some type of creatures flying around and murdering the local townspeople. Quite read and interesting
Witheringly bad. Pun indeed intended. Read it just to finish it. Not compelling, characters you could care less about, laugh-out-loud-because-it's-so-bad prose.
Silly horror story, hard to take seriously
