Cursed is part three of the Witchwood Estate series, and it’s just as entrancing as the first two.
I have to admit that I was a tiny bit sceptical about reading a book as you would watch a serial on TV, but it works. Each ‘episode’ is a short read in itself, but the books are well-priced and the storyline engrossing.
There was a gap of several weeks between books, but even so, I found I could easily pick up where I left off. The author’s ability to create a world rich enough and characters deep enough to stay with you is a talent not many have. As a reader, I am grateful for that. This is a series I know I can follow, and I certainly enjoyed losing myself in it.
Besides the beautiful storytelling voice, Patti Roberts has added a visual aspect in the recipe sheet from the witches’ spell book, and also a good selection of bonus material, relevant to the story – from the list of characters to the witchcraft terminology and meanings of birthstones, crystals, candles, animal symbols… You name it, it’s in there. Very interesting.
I wholeheartedly recommend Witchwood Estate – all three books have exceeded my expectations. Beautifully written, this series is suitable for all ages. It would certainly make a smooth-flowing TV serial aimed at a younger adult audience. I’m a fan! I want to read more. Easily 5 out of 5 stars.
