Review for Witchcraft (The Meadowsweet Chronicles #1) by Katie M. John: ★★★★

Witchcraft (The Meadowsweet Chronicles, #1)Witchcraft by Katie M. John

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


::..Reviewed for Red's Midnight Readers..::

I was given an ARC of this in exchange for an honest review. I have given it 4 stars!!

Going into Witchcraft I wasn't sure what to expect but what I did get was spellbinding.

I loved the plot concept and the whole back history and how the author worked it into the plot so seamlessly. Katie M. John has managed to create a somewhat atmospheric story that will keep you on the edge of your seat. The drama and there is lots of drama, that will keep you turn the pages again and again!

I loved the female characters, I even admired the wicked witches. They were all strong, independent characters, something we don't always see enough.

However, I do feel that the ending was a little bit rushed and let the general feel of the book down. I do hope that everything is explained in a little bit more depth in the next books.

Overall I really enjoyed the book and I will definitely be reading the rest of this series.

Ever since its earliest days, the small English village of Heargton has been steeped in the occult. Tales of witchcraft and paranormal activity have been part of the local folklore for generations. Some people blame the lay lines that intersect at the very centre of the village, others blame a terrible curse.

700 years on, Heargton Village still holds dark secrets, and when one of the village girls falls victim to a terrible ritual killing, the old superstitions resurface.

At the heart of these whispers are the Meadowsweet sisters. All beautiful, all charming, all eccentric, but it is the middle daughter, seventeen-year-old Fox, who captures the imagination of American newcomer Jeremiah Chase; a deviant New York playboy sent to live with his Aunt in the Chase ancestral home of Coldstone Hall. A place that has its own grisly history.

But, as Jeremiah discovers the history of the Meadowsweet Sisters, the Chase family history is also unearthed, leading Jeremiah to understand that good and evil are not always on opposing sides.

A tale of witchcraft, demons and ghosts, blending traditional English folklore with the American Gothic.
