  • A great, funny read.

    I enjoyed this book immensely. A great read which made me laugh out loud in places. I got the impression this was the start of a series so there was a lot of 'scence setting' but all I can say is bring on the next one please!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Pleasant Surprise!

    What a pleasant surprise! I've had this book in my TBR for a long while and kept avoiding it, probably because it was a novella and I'm not big on novellas. It's too bad, because I started it late last night and finished it this evening. It was really good! The story is set in a small town in contemporary England that just happens to be the boundary between our mundane world and a world filled with many wild and dangerous and evil things. A bigbox store wants to set up business in the town and that would bring down the barriers and well... you can imagine. Three women stand between the evil, the town cranky lady, the vicar and the skeptical owner of the magic store. All three of them are terrific characters, filled with flaws and emotions and authenticity that I just loved and was quite frankly surprised to see in the shortened framework of a novella. But I'm not gonna lie, I wanted it to be longer! I wanted to spend more time with these women and learn even more about them - and that bit of a twisty ending! Surprised the hell out of me, it did! And Book Two is now on my wishlist!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Witch of Lichfield

    Very disappointed in this book. It started very well and went off track and dragged. The ending was a mish mash

  • Good but perhaps all over too quickly.

    Potentially a very good story, albeit rather short. I say that because I'm used to Phil Rickman's Merrily Watkins series which this storyline resembles not a little, down to the village location and a female vicar. However, Cornell's characters seem at time less convincing and lacking in depth when compared with Rickman's. There are more "supernatural" elements, however, and maybe the speed of the narrative makes them less realistic than they could be. I confess I was a little put off by one or two Americanisms of language, spoiling what I'd assumed was the English village setting. Still, this is a good tale of the genre and I look forward to reading the others of the series.

    Thanks for your feedback!
