~~♥Review♥~~ HEDGEWITCH by Simon Kewin

Title: Hedge Witch 
Author: Simon Kewin
Publication date: April 2014
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult
Fifteen year-old Cait Weerd has no idea she’s being sought by the undain: sorcerous creatures of necromancy that feed off the spirit of the living. She doesn’t know the undain need her blood to survive. She doesn’t even know she’s a witch, descended from a long line of witches. Cait Weerd doesn’t know a lot, really, but all that’s about to change.

At Manchester Central Library she’s caught up in sudden, horrific violence. In the chaos she’s handed an old book that’s been hidden there and told to run, hide the book or destroy it. It contains all the secrets of the undains’ existence. They and their human servants want to find that as much as they want Cait.

What’s more, she learns that the fate of two worlds is at stake here. Just what she needs. Along with definitely-not-a-boyfriend Danny, she has to decide what the hell to do. Run, fight or just hope it all goes away.

It’s only then she learns who she really is, along with the terrible truth of what the undain have been doing in our world all this time …
Simon was born on the misty Isle of Man but now lives deep in the English countryside with his wife and two daughters.

He writes science fiction and fantasy as well as some stories that can’t make their minds up.

My Review
Cait Weerd is visiting her grandmother at the Manchester Central Library. They are returning some books to the archives deep below the library when they are attacked by an evil creature, an 'undain'. Cait's grandmother gives her a valuable book and tells her to run. Then the whole scene changes and we are with witches and dragon riders. The witches are attacked, again by an evil creature, and an ancient grimoire is stolen. Why are these books so important? Where are these 'undain' coming from? Why do they want Cait?

This book is FULL of action! Which normally, I wouldn't really be into that but I was on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. Simon grabs you in the beginning and doesn't let you go! Although, I have to say I was a little confused in the early part if the book because of the scene change, but once I got acclimated to it, I was on a wild ride all the way to the finish line. There is a nice twist at the end of the book that had me really going. The author really put some work behind this. He brings you into his world and practically shows you what he sees through is descriptiveness of your surroundings. I think he did a wonderful job and this book would be recommended for anyone who likes magic and dragons. 4 out of 5 stars.
