Review: Escape from Witchwood Hollow
Escape from Witchwood Hollow by Jordan Elizabeth
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I received a copy of Escape from Witchwood Hollow from the publisher in return for an honest review.
Escape from Witchwood Hollow was a light and fast read, I flew through this one in no time at all. I enjoyed the perspectives of the different time periods, it worked well and gave the plot and what was happening more depth. The way the characters from the different time periods came together in the end was a pleasant surprise and despite the back and forth between the different times it was easily followed.
There was quite a few characters and they weren't as developed as I would have liked and it gave the feeling of parts being missing but to be honest it didn't really matter much. The characters all worked well together and there was just enough of a background to each for the story to work. There was the odd factual mistake but not anything major that ruined the story.
One thing I did find irritating and kind of out of place was all the fashion brand naming, I felt it wasn't really needed. I found myself getting annoyed that almost every outfit the main character wore kind of felt like an advert. It was too much information, too often. At times I thought it felt like the author was being sponsored by different brands to give them a mention.
In summary this was a light and easy read that you can pick up and just enjoy for what it is. No heavy thinking involved and a simple plot that doesn't require your complete attention to try and follow or decipher. It has a few issues that are easily forgiven and was an enjoyable story.
