Everything you thought you knew about witches is wrong. They are much darker, and they are much more horrifying. Wytches takes the mythology of witches to a far creepier, bone-chilling place than readers have dared venture before. When the Rooks family moves to the remote town of Litchfield, NH to escape a haunting trauma, they’re hopeful about starting over. But something evil is waiting for them in the woods just beyond town. Watching from the trees. Ancient…and hungry.
This was…okay. I liked how the novel was cleverly bookended with everything occurring tying in with an incident in the beginning. There was also an in-story comic that cleverly connected with the book’s plot, and the artwork is decent.
I liked the relationship Sailor had with Charlie, her father, but her character is not well developed. She had a cool, quirky look, which may have been Snyder’s way of hinting why she’d been bullied, but no personality to fill that role.
