As their relationship develops, Shayde struggles to decide how to reveal her true nature, unaware that the effect of this revelation will be more momentous and potentially devastating than she ever imagined. Can she uphold the destiny bestowed on her by her ancestors, or will her love for Kruise ultimately destroy her?
Ever since Ann Pilling’s debut novel, BLACK HARVEST, now a Collins Modern Classic, she has built her reputation into one of our best-loved and most talented contemporary writers for children. She won the Guardian Fiction Award for HENRY’S LEG. THE WITCH OF LAGG follows the same children who appear in BLACK HARVEST – Colin, Prill and Oliver. Here they are staying in Laggs Castle, a truly creepy place, and as they begin to explore the old house and the dark woods surrounding it, they find themselves becoming the victims of some evil force... Could it be some kind of vampire? Surely only something really terribly could make a loaf of bread taste of bones and blood...
Ann Pilling has managed, yet again, to create a mysterious, compelling and gripping tale.
Things have never been better for Eve Evergold, Deepdene's kick-ass witch.
But when things seem too good to be true, they usually are. An evil far greater than Eve has ever
known is at work in Deepdene - and it's hell-bent on turning her closest friends against her.
This time, it looks like Eve is going to have to face her demons alone . . .
When she's finally given the chance to join the elite demon-hunting force, Penelope thinks that will finally change. With her sister's help, she can squeeze through the tests and get access to the information she needs to find "her" demon. To take back what was stolen.
Then she meets Carter. He's cute, smart, and she can borrow his magic, too. He knows her secret—but he also has one of his own.
Suddenly, Penelope's impossible quest becomes far more complicated. Because Carter's not telling her everything, and it's starting to seem like the demons have their own agenda...and they're far too interested in her.
