A ghost and witch story that based on real events.
The witch who terrorizes the town of Mushroom circle has now decided to curse outsiders. Everybody believes it’s just a folklore just to scare people, but then individuals went insane and killed themselves the next day. Some worshipped the witch to spare their life. Now the folktale has become a reality.
Can the witch be stopped or will the people have to live in terror knowing that they could be next?
I was contacted by the author about this book. Within a couple of pages I could see why. This book was very poorly written and was not edited at all. Many high school students could have edited most of the problems I found. The author frequently mixed up ‘there’ and ‘their’. He also frequently combined past with present and singular with plural.
There were few details about people, events or locations. Apparently, the main character wears a balaclava (a face mask that only shows your eyes) all the time but the author doesn’t tell you this until you’re a third of the way through the book and the explanation for why he wears it isn’t until near the end.
To be honest, the only reason I gave this book two stars is because I believe that if the story line was given to a semi-decent (yes, semi-decent) writer they could take this jumble of words and turn it into a book.
