Summary

Deep in the Appalachian Mountains, a monstrous evil rises, and the only one who can stand against it is a teen-age witch who doesn't believe in magic.

Grieving and lost after the death of her parents, Jenny Morgan is sent to West Virginia to live with an aunt she's never met. It's there that Jenny is confronted with an unbelievable family heritage of witchcraft and magic - something she immediately dismisses as old-fashioned superstitions. However, once her new home is threatened by deadly horrors straight out of myth and folklore, her aunt's stories become impossible to ignore. 

Now Jenny and her three new friends - friends with dark secrets all their own - are the only ones who stand a chance of stopping the growing evil, but only if Jenny can embrace her arcane heritage. Little does Jenny know that wielding her power will attract the attention of an even greater evil - the same immortal entity her parents died to protect her from.

A great storyline for all ages.

It took me a while to get through the audiobook, it seems l am a much better reader than I am a listener! That being said, I really enjoyed the story and thought it was both well written and well read/narrated. This is a great story for either ya or adults in my opinion. A fantastic plot line, great characters and some fantastical ideas. I can't wait to see what happens next, although l think I'll go for the ebook next time!

I received a free copy of this audiobook in return for an honest review.

Magic, ghosts, and mysterious death

Jenny’s parents were just found dead and she’s sent to live with an aunt she’s never known. She comes to find out that she has magic even though she disbelieves these things until faces with a woman who might be behind the deaths of her parents. Will Jenny rise to the task? Will she accept her heritage? Great characters and gripping story.

Good

A good introduction to what looks to be a series of books since there were a lot of little loose ends left at the end.
The Narrator did a good job for what looks to be one of her first gigs.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Fantasy Folklore!

Someone said this started out slow. They're wrong. My attention was grabbed from the beginning. While I read this book, forest fires were threatening my home. through all that, I couldn't put the book down! Well done Jay!

Lots of action

An interesting mix of characters comes together with a creative mix of monsters and confused motivations to create a story packed with action, twists and turns, and some romance.

The world building was really well done, I spent the whole book picturing everything that was happening. The book came alive for me.

The characters are well crafted and feel whole and real, their actions seem natural and they're easy to connect with.

Thoroughly entertaining this book left me wanting more even thought the story ends at a good stopping point. I enjoyed my glimpse into this world and I want more of these characters and the world they're in.

I enjoyed the narration, the pacing and phrasing carried the emotions of the story and the character voices were believable.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

Folklore in the Appalachians

The story is told in multiple POVs of older teenagers who one way or another have a certain gift that ties them to the supernatural world.
I was immediately taken with Jenny’s story after seeing what happened with her parents. I was a bit confused at the beginning with the multiple POVs but once I got it nailed down, it was all good.
The folklore, and the paranormal elements were put together very well. The details were vivid and I felt like I was there with the gang fighting the creatures.
Overall it was a enjoyable listen. The narrator was okay, but I struggled a bit with which character she was portraying.
I would recommend this series to anyone who enjoys reading folklore urban fantasy in West Virginia.

Baskerville Book Reviews

This is a book I’ve been excited to talk about. I wanted to save it for a time when I would be able to review all 3 books together. I regret waiting though. It reminds me a lot of the show Supernatural. A show I love and have loved for the last decade.

While it already had my attention, being a concept I’m already a huge fan of. I think it stands well on its own. The reveals had me gasping, the twists and turns had me on the edge of my seat. While I enjoy most of the books I read, it’s rare that I can say I felt invested in them.

Everything in the story is descriptive. What stands out most though, are the character interactions. They’re are all very well done and feel like interactions and conversations real people would have. Their dialogue and internal monologue make you feel like you’re there with them, as a silent member of their group. I did have trouble with the characters’ names. 3/4 of the main cast have names that start with a J and even one of the characters in the book mentioned how confusing it was getting. While it took me an embarrassingly long time to tell people apart; in my defense, I have an extremely difficult time with names, faces, and voices.

Speaking of voices, the narrator does a top-notch job with character voices, accents, and singing. Where her narration annoyed the hell out of me was when she kept saying “unfarmiliar”. There’s only 1 r in unfamiliar and I can’t stand it when people add letters to words. It’s even more insufferable because the word is used all over this story. The second thing to annoy me with the narration is when she says “1o7 a.m”. Ignoring how stupid I find the concept of 12-hour clocks, o isn’t a number, it’s a letter. I can’t stand it when people say “o” instead of zero.

NOTE: This copy was provided to me free of charge as a digital review copy. The opinions stated in this review are mine and mine alone, I was not paid or requested to give this book a certain rating, suggestion, or approval.

A great story

This was a great story. The author did a great job with the characters. Some were evil to the core & some were kind and very likeable. Jenny has no idea she is a witch until her parents are killed and she is sent to live with her aunt. Once she is there and learns of her heritage she is engrossed in a battle with a monster. After Jenny and her friends dispatch the monster they have to find out where the monster came from and then make sure there are no more. As Jenny learns to use her powers they learn of an evil plot that they must thwart. Now the evil witch has an ogre on her side. The journey that Jenny takes to stop this threat will keep you turning pages. A great story & I can't wait to read # 2.

Decent

This is a nice easy listen. This story has adventures, they're not heart stopping but they're fun to listen to. The narrator does a decent job.

excellent characters and storyline!

Excellent addition to the series!  The story continues to keep you engaged as new and old characters continue to surprise you with how they deal with transpiring events. The inner dialog is a bitty chatty but once you adjust you do get used to it.

I look forward to seeing how this series progresses.

Appalachian Folklore Story turns Paranormal!!

I purchased this Audible book and listened to it on Audible.
This story is in a part of West Virginia in backhill Appalachian Mtns and starts out as a possible folklore tale that sublely turns into a Great Story that goes Wonderfully sideways!! I can not wait to start book 2 on Audible. I highly recommend this book not only for YA but All ages.
