“The Witches of Hant Hallow:
Jonathan’s Curse" by D.F. Jones

Hant Hallow has a number of supernatural beings residing there, among them are witches who follow both the light and the dark ways, vampires, werewolves, and others. Generally, the humans are entirely unaware of the existence of these beings, but sometimes, the magical beings are more noticeable. And in the past, this has sometimes brought down the wrath of some and led to hangings of witches by those who fear them.

Jasmine is growing tired of hiding in plain sight, and begins to fall for a human when he saves her from a group of boys who were throwing stones and attacking her. Thus began a friendship that her mother, who follows the darker ways of the witches, will not tolerate. She curses Johathan, forcing him to live in a mirror universe away from all his friends and family as well as stealing the human woman that he loves from him. Jasmine begins a very long quest to help him break the curse and regain his life and hopefully to find love again.

This was an interesting story about the power of love and friendship, as well as showing the harm that can come even to oneself when you seek to control or bend others to your will. Children grow and eventually seek independence from their elders, but what happens when their elders aren’t willing to let them find their own way?

I enjoyed this book. It was a fairly quick read and I found it very entertaining. I think others will also enjoy reading it too.
