I'm just not going to be able to finish this book.
It started out with a lot of good ideas and a promising setting, a small English village, an inherited country mansion with a questionable past and a coven of witches. But, it certainly did not live up to expectations.
There were a couple of inconsistencies in the story line, hard to follow conversations and sudden character mood changes that seemed forced. It was as if the author knew where he wanted to be in the story but wasn't sure how to do it gracefully.
I believe this is the first self-published book that I have read and I can see why the publishers didn't pick this one up. I think an honest set of fresh eyes and a good editor could have done a lot for this novel.
