T.P. Penry has a wonderful style of atmospheric writing and captures the characters beautifully. Although intended for a teenage audience, I was pulled into the story and thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish.
You will never hear Silent Night in quite the same way again.
The wife has just finished reading this. She enjoyed it very much, she said, especially the mention of a cauldron and broom *no spoiler from me* and their useage lol. Very well written and easy to read with enough turns in the plot to keep it interesting without losing the reader.
Although, in theory, a book for children/young adults, I loved this. It was written by someone I like very much so I treated myself to it as a little Christmas present. Thoroughly enjoyable, with some cracking plot twists and turns.
