Hollow Pike - James Dawson
Author: James Dawson
Date of publication: 2nd of February 2012
Lis London has moved to a new town to escape her past in Wales. She has a whole new wardrobe and a new outlook on life. She is surprised when the most popular girl in school takes her under her wing but she cannot help but be drawn to a group of misfits. Word around school is that they are witches but Lis doesn't believe in them. Does she? When a student turns up murdered, she soon realises that the nightmares that have plagued her could be warnings and that someone might actually be trying to kill her.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I read it on a dark stormy night and have decided that this is the perfect book to read on such an occasion. It had mystery, horror, romance... everything. I loved Lis and her new friends, they were colourful and did not lie flatly on the page. The ending was totally unexpected! I'm rarely blind-sided. Read this one if you have the chance!
