5.0 out of 5 stars A Magical Horror!, 8 May 2011
This review is from: The Magic Cottage (Paperback)
This is a great book by Jamest Herbert offering dark fantasy and horror combined.

It is perhaps not ideal for hardcore horror readers, who prefer books like The Rats, this book is more inclined to appeal to readers who also enjoy dark fantasy and paranormal magic in their novels. But that is one of the reasons I rate this book so highly, it combines horror and dark fantasy beautifully, unlike traditional blood and guts horror this book also offers, like the title says, magic.

That's not to say it's not horrific in places, my sister had nightmares from some sections of this novel. But then she's never read horror before either. As a fan of dark fantasy and hardcore horror I adored this book as one of my all time favourites as it combines both the genres I love in exceptionally well written prose.

If you like horror and fantasy you'll love this book. And if you've never read horror before, it's a great book to start on!

For fans of James Herberts other works, expect something a bit different from this novel. The title is a dead giveaway that it's not a hardcore horror novel in James Herberts usual style.

Overall a magical read combining dark fantasy and horror in a truly unique way.
