Summary

It’s summer in Adders Fork. The sun is out, the sky is blue and things are going swimmingly for Rosie Strange. The Essex Witch Museum has been relaunched with a new Ursula Cadence wing and picnic grounds. Then developers roll into the sleepy village to widen the road. 

When the centuries-old Blackly Be boulder, said to mark the grave of a notorious witch, is moved, all hell breaks out. Within hours a slew of peculiar phenomena descends, and when a severed head is discovered atop the boulder, the locals storm the museum to demand someone take action. 

Can Rosie and Sam unravel the mystery? And what of the ancient treasure that could drastically change someone’s fortunes and offer a motive for murder?

Confused

I had quite liked the previous two books in this series so gave this one a go. Wished I had taken notice of the adverse reviews and not bothered. I skipped through the second half of the book as it was not a pleasure to listen too. The story was confused and boring. I had liked the narrator on the previous books but here she sounded very flat as if she found the book boring as well. If there are any more books in this series I definitely won’t be bothering with them.

Ok but not great........

Having read the first two I can honestly say this was my least favourite, although I will still stick with the series if more are published.
I felt this book was more about setting up future plot lines than the actual story.
However, still worth a listen because I hope this is the foundation for better stories to come.

Sid Moore! You’ve done it again!

Wow what can I say? I’ve become a huge fan of Sid Moore’s work, I absolutely loved her other books, but then I discovered the Strange Series, and nothing prepared me for the bonds I as a reader would build with Rosie and Sam. Sid writes her characters so well that each and every one of them comes to life in my mind, I can picture them, hear them, and grow to care about them. When you finish a book and sit there missing the characters, you know you’ve been on an amazing journey through its chapters. I felt like I was right there with them. I literally listened to the first two books two weeks before this one was released on audible, I was (still am) going through some issues and these books got me through, the days and nights my mind wouldn’t switch off from these issues, from doing the house work to working on the computer I was doing so by listening to Rosie and Sam on their adventures, I finished the second book 5 days before this one released so I literally finished listening and started back at chapter one, to fill the gap between books, I didn’t get bored even though I had just listened to them, in fact I enjoyed them more just because I adore Rosie and Sam, and they helped me escape my own issues. I listen to many audible books each week, I go through credits like no tomorrow, it’s going to take a lot to compete with this and make me feel the way these books do. Thank you Sid Moore x
