THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS.

This was a definite can't put down book.

The Ravenheart witches were very strong willed and I loved the way in which Katie wrote their dark side. I would love to read a book with them as the main characters. They each have their own individual characteristics.

The Meadowsweet witches were softer and more likable characters and the sibling rivalry was written really well. I know this having two younger sisters lol. I can't wait to read more on how the relationship between Jeremiah and Fox progresses with the new love hate status. It feels like they are meant to be together. I so hope they are but time will tell.
Swan is such a gentle being, who would have thought that would happen OMG I really hope she has not been affected mentally.
Bunny is your usual younger sister having her version of temper tantrums but she hid her gifts well. Go Bunny.

I love that the history of the families are connected way back in time and have been enemy covens for so long. And add to that the witch hunters. Now he was a nasty piece of work. Will Jeremiah follow suit or will he fight what is in his bloodlines.

The book draws you in from the first page to the last. It leaves you with a feeling of despondency just because it ended so if you are thinking about reading this book I would advise downloading the next one. I am just off to do that. Happy reading.

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.

A story of modern day witchcraft, good against evil. I did find it a little confusing at times as the author based the story in a quaint English village with the main characters attending school however she appears to refer to the school system in America rather than the UK. Occasionally too there appear to be American phrases popping in and out.

The story in general I rather enjoyed although because of its content of ritualistic occult killings I feel it is maybe aimed at older teens rather than younger ones.

*** I voluntarily reviewed this book, I gained no monetary incentives nor was I specifically requested to review the book, these are my honest ramblings and I hope you enjoy reading them - kat***

When I first started this book I was going to DNF, I the writing style switches from UK to US intermittently, and using descriptions that are not used in the English Language, that ended up making the passages sound like a 5 yr old had written the sentence.

I am not sure how much research was done for the book but if the proper word had been used the sentences would have made more grammatical sense and not interrupted my reading flow.

Note: There are a few gruesome passages, due to the ritual killing.

Fox, comes into her gift at the same time as American newcomer Jeremiah Chase; is banished to live Aunt in the Chase ancestral home of Coldstone Hall. Spooky goings on in this house too, maybe they will be delved into more in the other books to come.

As the horrors of the disappearances are revealed the Meadowsweet Sisters, have to stop ignoring their heritage and get involved, but when the Chase family intervene too lives are altered and Fox and her sister's lives will never be the same.

So what did I think
Overall Plot line - good, it reminded me more of Sleepy Hollow than a UK witch story, but then I am from the North East, and the stories of witches are few and far between in my home area, they were witch trials in East Anglia, Yorkshire, Warwickshire.

Again, Katie gives us another phenomenal piece of writing. Her books grip me with both hands and I cannot put them down. So looking forward to reading the rest of this series.

It has all the potential to be an almost-perfect YA novel in the vein of L J Smith's The Secret Circle. I was confused about the genre: it was too knowing for a YA, but too centred around teenage characters to be adult. This is the first in the series and I'm looking forward to reading the other books.

This is a great story with memorable characters. The drama starting from the very beginning. There is enough drama to cover 2 or 3 books!

I liked the female characters, but the main male character seemed too sullied and unlikeable for a YA. In my opinion, it needed to tone down on the sex and swearing, and reveal information in a more timely manner: for example, a character would suddenly jump into the narrative but you'd only find out who it was in the next chapter; and a mini reveal of the amazing powers of the sisters would have built up excitement for the fantastic showdown at the end.

But for all my thoughts about it, please read it; at times KM John's writing was so atmospheric and spooky, I had to keep reading until the narrative had passed a particular description or I couldn't go to bed!

As a last comment, there were some stereotypes and details that were 'off'. For example, this annoyed me all the way through: since when did British people use hob kettles, except as a novelty for a couple of weeks before they went back to their electric kettle - is the author American or Canadian? 😄
