I failed to finish this book for a number of reasons.
I am going to list them below. I do realise that this is Kezzy’s first novel in a blog tour (see previous interview in November) and thus one that has gone out to a wide audience, but for me it lacked quite a few things.
- the story was too long. it needed editing into a tighter storyline.
- the way it was written I found strange – the grammar, the phrasing and the way the sentences often didn’t flow seamlessly into the next. The style was staccato.
- example of above “The day outside looks a whole lot new”.
- I found much of the content too ‘young’ – I know that Kezzy wanted to be different but the concept of a clawed hammer to claw out bad spells seemed to me to be something that my 10 year old grand-daughter would come up with. His potential audience is more sophisticated.
- this jarred with the explicit sexual content!
- the witch hunter seemed to lack much of the necessary skills for her work.
So the publisher’s blurb fails to live up to the potential and actual content. Sorry Kezzy!
