Escape from Witchwood Hollow
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Everyone in Arnn - a small farming town with more legends than residents - knows the story of Witchwood Hollow: if you venture into the whispering forest, the witch will trap your soul among the shadowed trees.

After losing her parents in a horrific terrorist attack on the Twin Towers, fifteen-year-old Honoria and her older brother escape New York City to Arnn. In the lure of that perpetual darkness, Honoria finds hope, when she should be afraid.

Perhaps the witch can reunite her with her lost parents. Awakening the witch, however, brings more than salvation from mourning, for Honoria discovers a past of missing children and broken promises.

To save the citizens of Arnn from becoming the witch’s next victims, she must find the truth behind the woman’s madness.

How deep into Witchwood Hollow does Honoria
dare venture?

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Escape from Witchwood Hollow

This was an okay story, but I did find it a little confusing.

Honoria was an alright character, but I was a little concerned at how readily she wanted to sneak out at night with some other girls who she didn’t know at all, and how much she wanted to go into a haunted wood at night!

The storyline in this confused me a bit with the story alternating between 2001 and 1856. It took me a while to work out the connection between the two parts of the story, and I lost interest a little bit.

The ending to this was okay, and it was good that the mystery of what had happened to the missing little boy was solved.

6 out of 10

Favourite Quote – “Lies,” Shane shrieked. “My uncle doesn’t have no brother!”
