Summary:

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 Thoughts~

This book was a little different for me. It starts out in 2011 only to change into the year 1670. However then it again changes to year 1850. A red flag went up in my head. I usually don’t like when the story jumps around too much however a good note. This one didn’t jump around too much it jumped around just enough to shed enough light on each time period to make it slowly come together. To be honest I had no idea how all three years were going to come together. Usually I am fairly good at seeing where a story is headed and I can usually piece together the pieces of the story only to usually be right at the end. I was interestingly and blissfully in the dark, which only kept me reading because for the life of me I could not figure out how this story was going to come together in the end.

I seem to have come to develop a love for similies and metaphors. I like the unusual, out of the box kind and Jordan definitely wrote a few that surprised me. I wouldn’t have thought of a few of the descriptions and a few of the comparisons as she wrote had she not wrote them. As she wrote all the years came together in such a way that was just amazing.

~Final Thoughts~

I don’t think I have read another story quite like this one. I felt like it was a big puzzle and it was just amazing and different how Jordan made the story come together. Oh and another thing. Don’t piss of a witch. You never know what the witch is fully capable of. Lol! Awesome read! See for yourself and read this book.
