The Grindle Witch by Benjamin J Myers Review

Reviewed by Louisa Nashir

Jack Jolly and his family relocate from the city to Grindle, a quiet and sleepy little village which Jack isn’t particularly thrilled about.

He assumes country life will be boring and mundane but what Jack and the rest of Grindle don’t know is an ancient evil being the spirit of the Grindle Witch has resurfaced and is murdering victims to gain strength.

One night when out walking as part of a dare Jack and Paddy come face to face with the terrifying spirit and miraculously both live!

Jack and his friends Paddy and Leila soon realise the Grindle Witch is immortal to humans and can only be stopped by a supernatural being.

After finding a book at Leila’s house they decide to summon a demon to eradicate the Grindle Witch but nothing is going to be that simple.

Throughout the book you meet many characters including the mysterious Ezekiel Creek a ‘traveller’ who just so happens to appear after the teens summon their devil in a ritual involving chalk, chicken blood and salt.

Is Ezekiel the demon they called for and what is in his padlocked urn he carries with him when travelling.

Well I know the answers but am not going to spoil it for you so you need to grab a copy of this wildly entertaining book and find out for yourself!

I enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it to others out there who like thriller and horror stories.

Well worth a read.
