I've always loved all things witchy. I even remember this dream I had when I was little. I was walking into a cave and there was an old woman standing above a cauldron. She was stirring and saying something but I can't recall what and I was drawn to get this pentagram ring at a random store in the mall. How weird is it that the place was called General Store? Getting the chance to read this book was so great because I love witch books and I've been trying to read more men authors. It feels like 99% of the books I read are written by women.
Most of the time the title is what gets my attention unless it happens to be an author I know. A cool cover doesn't hurt and I really do like this one. I was thrilled to find out that this is part of a series because I really liked Sam and Bob. It was also a nice change to have the perspective told from a male character. I also loved that there was finally a friendship in a book that was actually a good one. Usually friendships are pretty non existent or the friend isn't that great. I liked that the two guys hung out and watched horror movies. Ooh that sounds like a good idea. Must do that soon.
Bob decides to take his friend Sam for a tarot reading. They go to this village that's full of witches. Ironically there are Amish people that live near them which I found a bit amusing. The village sounds awesome because I wouldn't mind finding one in real life that had the same deal for those who are related to the original settlers of the place. The reading is strange and a few days later Sam is asked to become Bridget's advocate. Sam and Bob are no strangers to the world of the supernatural. There are some serious charges brought up against Bridget and Sam is determined to prove her innocence otherwise she will meet a very horrible fate.
I am impressed with how Scott was able to tell such a great story in such a short amount of time. The book isn't long so this would be ideal for people who want a great read that doesn't require the time commitment that a longer book would. For me I'm cool with every day being Halloween but I think this would be a great book to add to the list if you're a seasonal type of reader. This would make my list of books to read during Halloween. It had quite an interesting twist. I was hooked from the very first page. I will definitely be picking up more books in this series. It can be read as a stand alone.
I would like to thank Camel Press for sending me a copy of this awesome book.
