The Woven Path is the story of a young boy, Neil Chapman, being forced to journey back to the past to rescue his little brother. Aided by a talking teddy bear, he travels back to the time of World War 2, but many things go wrong and Neil finds himself caught up in a nightmare world where a demon stalks the streets at night and nowhere is safe. This book is the first part to the Wyrd Museum trilogy, and is an exciting and worthwhile read.

Before Neil came to the live in the Wyrd museum he would have called himself an ordinary boy. Then he found himself caught up in the web cast by the 3 three guardians of the Museum, the sisters and weavers of Fate Ursula (Urdr), Veronica (Verdandi) and Celandine (Skuld) Neil is sent on a terrifying mission; to go back in time to the blitz, capture a demon, find the sisters' adopted daughter and bring her safely back with only the help of Ted, a man who has been trapped in a teddy for years and was originally a pilot in the blitz. The book tells this captivating story in a way that makes the book simply impossible to put down

Slightly disappointed are the words that best sum up my feelings. The first bit is okay but then when it goes back in time to the 2ndWW it loses "it". When I finished it, it was kind of a relief and I didn't want to turn the book back and start again. If you are a fan of Jarvis you may be fine with the book but this is only the second book I have read by him and it has put me off trying anymore.

I was lucky enough to have Robin Jarvis visit my school when I was eleven years old. This was the first ever book I had bought from him and I still have my signed copy to remind me what an outstanding book this is! I'm 17 now and I love The Woven Path as much as I did the first time I read it. Probably the best part is the revelation inside the lunatic asylum back in the Blitz. If you have any sense at all, BUY THIS BOOK!! You won't regret it!

Neil Chapman was sure that the Webster sisters{Ursula, Veronica and Celandine}of the Wyrd Museum were strange. If he had any idea he would have run straight back to his fathers van. This book combines Nazi's, Murder, Mystery, History, War and a senile dancing old woman{Celandine Webster}to create a thrilling thick book. This is Robin Jarvis' best series ever and I didn't think that anything could surpass the Whitby Witches and the series to which it belongs. This book is a deffinate must buy book that won't come at a more brilliant price than Amazon. Once you have read this book, whether you like it or not, you have to read the next book{The Raven's Knot} which is as good as The Woven Path. Even The Raven's Knot demands a sequel. And guess what! Mr. Jarvis has provided the chilling conclusion to the Wyrd Museum seies "The Fatal Strand". I have all three books at home as should every other home in the world. So take my review with interest and buy all three books. Thanx for taking the time to read my review!

I was given this trilogy as a present from an older cousin who'd grown out of them, along with the Whitby Books, when I was around 8. I'd read all the Deptford books, and loved them, and had high hopes for this book. It was quite simply one of the best books I've ever read, and at 21 years old I'm still in love with!
Ok, so as a trilogy, the Wyrd books aren't a patch on the Whitby Series as a whole, but this is my favourite of all the books - its beautifully written, with just the right mix of funny, spooky, thrilling and poignant (theres a section near the end that has reduced me to tears every time I've read it!), and if you are into fantasy novels but are a little bored of the bog-standard dragon slayers, this is a great read.

I had read this book when I was younger and have been looking for it for years!

It is a great read and in certain parts quite funny - the characters have plenty of depth and the plot is engaging. I would highly recommend this book series for those who like fantasy/history wrapped up into a world of fascinating and slightly weird happenings.

Age group: I wouldn't restrict its audience however I would suggest 11 and older as some parts of the book may be a little scary for young children.

All in all - five star rating from me.

I first read this book when I was about thirteen and I read it quickly then without any hesitation. I have just read it again now at the age of 22 and I have to say it still does not disappoint. Strangely enough it is the first book I've ever read that has a ctually made me cry at the ending, and once putting the book down for a break you are forced to return to it five minutes later for just one more chapter before you get on with some work.

Buy the book, read it and keep it safe. You will undoubtedly read it again someday!

Robin Jarvis is a great author. I first read this series aged around 13. They are classed as young pre teen books.10-12 years. I would disagree, there's something for everyone in this series. Obviously i am reviewing the first in a series of three books. I personally enjoy the Norse mythology woven throughout the story. Great twist and a brilliant start to the trilogy. Now Amazon, please get the Whitby Witches series available for Kindle ,please.

I am 19 years old and still read every new title Robin Jarvis puts out. The Wyrd Museum books are a great work of imagination. I read them two years ago and was gripped by them. Robin Jarvis has the ability to create a magic in all of his books but this trilogy in particular stands out for older readers...
