Escape from Witchwood Hollow by Jordan Elizabeth

escape

Jordan Elizabeth is a new writer to me. I received this book free from Curiosity Quills Press in exchange for an honest review.

This is the blurb that accompanies the book on Amazon: 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?

—————————————————-

At first we start out following Honoria who we learned about in the description above. She is in art class which they are having outside. This is her first day at the school and one of the girls is already being mean to her. And then they decide to scare her with their legends of the witch that lives in Witchwood Hollow’s forest which is right by the high school.

Honoria sneaks out that night and goes with the two girls to the woods. They dare her to walk in and before she can think about it, she’s moving and then she’s walked farther than she had realized when she snaps out of the fog she was in. She swears she heard someone calling to her and her alone in the forest.

After that, we start to follow a few other people who manage to end up in Arnn and other parts of the country. They are all connected somehow, but how are they connected? What’s up with all the missing people that enter the forest? Is the witch really a witch or just someone who was lonely and old and everyone painted her as a witch? To find out the answer to these questions and more, you’ll have to read the book.

I found it easy to read Honoria’s chapters. But when it was following other people, I had issues trying to keep everything straight. It clearly stated who each chapter was following but after a while it got confusing trying to figure out what had happened to whom. A good book over all though and I do recommend it to fellow readers.
