Escape from Witchwood Hollow review


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?



This book is a story within a story, within a story, and more. Reading the synopsis, I was intrigued. After reading the book, it was so much more than the description. 
The book begins in presence tense. Honoria is just making due with the place she lives. Not by choice of course. She is curious with the story about the witch. However now it is in question of how much she wants to be involved.
Not only do you read about her, but of many other characters. All of them are different living in different eras. Except they are all in one place. You get a story of how they made it to the same place, the Witch's forest.

I do have to say that the book kept me interested till the end. Jordan Elizabeth put a lot of thought into this and it shows. Personally I would have never thought of merging so many stories into one book with the same ending. The book was memorable. In my book life, that is huge. A unique story with a interesting title.

I rate the book a 4.4. Worth your time.
