Willow Woods Academy for Witches
Willow Woods Book 1
by R.L.Weeks & Skylar Mckinzie
YA Fantasy / Mystery






An unforgettable YA novel filled with mystery and magic. Fans of Harry Potter and Beautiful Creatures will love this series.


Kat and Angie have just enrolled at Willow Woods Academy for Witches against their parent's wishes. They're thrown into a magical, mysterious world that is everything they dreamt it to be. However, when an ancient book falls into their laps, their worlds are turned upside down.
10 years ago, a rivalry between the covens of Willow Woods Academy and Morwood's School cost many their lives and cast a dark shadow over the academy. Now, Morwood's has opened again for the first time since the incident, and mysterious happenings are occurring - and they all seem to be surrounding Kat.
School's never easy, and with her exams coming up, a stalker in the trees, and her family name shadowing doubt over what side she's on, the first year of school is more of an adventure than she had ever anticipated.



MY TIDBITS

This is a fun, coming-of-age type of story with magic, mystery and tons of unexpected adventure.

Kat and Angie run away from home and enroll themselves (thanks to a little forgery) in the Willow Woods Academy for Witches. At first, they think they'll get everything in control, but soon, mysteries about the past catch up to them and they're in for a whole lot more than they bargained for.

This is a magical adventure which grabs from the first page and keeps hold until the very end. There's a wonderful mixture of characters, and the scenes pull into an intriguing world. Kat and Angie are a little naive in many respects in the beginning, but the problems quickly have them adapting. There's a lot of mystery about the past from the very first page, and it only grows and thickens the whole way through. There are characters to love, ones to hate, and many others in between as the school and the world develop, laying a wonderful basis for the rest of the series.
