    One thought on “Escape from Witchwood Hollow”

    1. This is a really good book. The story is mainly about Honoria who has moved to Arnn with her brother Geoffrey and their aunt and uncle after her parents are killed in the World Trade Center. The reader immediately gets drawn into Honoria's life. She's a pretty smart girl for 15. The book is also about Lady Elizabeth Clifford who in the 1600's is accused of killing her brother-in-law by using witchcraft and she is on the run in the woods by Arnn. Soon other people are getting trapped in the woods [...]

    2. This is a fun book! Great for fans of historical fiction. I liked how the story goes between three different time periods, but everything is tied together. The author originally conceived of this story as a movie and that is evident in the cinematic quality of the writing. The novel transports you and I am now inspired to go on a historical adventure in my own hometown.

    3. This book follows our main character, Honoria, after she lost both her parents to the collapse of the twin towers.The book weaves together the tail from separate time periods and I often felt like Arnn was a character in and of itself.The writing was solid and seamless and even if I thought the author missed the teen authenticity once in a while (brand names, much?), it really was an exciting tale and worth the read.

    4. I was given a copy of Jordan's book Escape from Witchwood Hollow in exchange for an honest review. The author is very good with descriptive words and her ability to shift language when writing period pieces is highlighted in this story. Jordan is very good at scene building and melding her characters into that scene. I'm reminded of how architect Frank Lloyd Wright believed a building shouldn't appear plunked down in an environment, but should feel as if it grew from it. This is how this author [...]

    5. Jordan Elizabeth's 'Escape from Witchwood Hollow' was a fun, quick read. I liked that Jordan took a chance and told the story from several different time periods. Some people might not enjoy this approach, but you need to go in with an open mind. Overall, I really enjoyed it and was shocked by the ending. If you are looking for something different and uniquely weird, this book might be a great read for you.I received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review.

    6. A good book to read near the anniversary of 911 as the main character's parents died when the twin towers crashed. It's a fantasy that has current day action, but also switches back to the past as well. I enjoyed the book and thought the ending (view spoiler)[ was sad, but it made sense and I wasn't too upset. And I really wished it wasn't Leon who shot her but Haley - poor guy! (hide spoiler)].

    7. Leave your broomsticks, your pointy hats and your sparkling red shoes behind, this tale of witchcraft is one of great loss, love, loneliness and hidden truths as Jordan Elizabeth’s creative cauldron gives us Escape from Witchwood Hollow, a YA fantasy for all ages. Will a teenage right of peer-passage in a small town filled with the whispers of legends, witchcraft and evil become a frightening journey into the darkness that calls to her? Honoria hears the whispers, they call to her, but thought [...]

    8. 3,5 starsThis book has been given to me in exchange for an honest review.What a strange story! Don't let my rating deter you as I'm 100% certain fans of the genre will positively love this book. I just was unsettled for a long time as I rarely read books with a feel of time travel, even if it's not about time travel per se.As the characters of this book, I was lost in the beginning. I was puzzled by all the chapters written from others point of view as we did not have one but rather three main c [...]

    9. (I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to author Jordan Elizabeth Mierek.)This was an okay story, but I did find it a little confusing.Honoria was an alright character, but I was a little concerned at how readily she wanted to sneak out at night with some other girls who she didn’t know at all, and how much she wanted to go into a haunted wood at night!The storyline in this confused me a bit with the story alternating between 2001 and 1856. It took m [...]

    10. The story centers around three different young women from three different time periods (1600s, 1800s, and 2001) all finding their way into the cursed Witchwood Hollow. I'm not usually a huge fan of historicals, but I absolutely loved venturing into the three different time periods. The author did a great job of creating three unique characters, and three unique settings, all while making the three young women seem so connected.The author has a fresh and distinctive voice. Not just anyone would t [...]

    11. In 1670 Lady Elizabeth Clifford fled into the nearby woods to escape the persecutors who would put her to death. They called her a witch; after the murder of a local village identity she had no choice but to flee. But what would be her future? Was she really a witch? 1850 found Albertine and Mary-Anne alone but for their drunken uncle and the farm they worked on. Their father had moved to America to find a better life after their mother had died – Arnn was the small farming town where he bough [...]

    12. I really liked the author's use of three overlapping stories in different time periods, linked by the creepy Witchwood Hollow. A twisty supernatural mystery with a fast pace and an imaginative storyline!

    13. Post 911 and the Twin Tower attack, a family relocates to the remote town, Arnn, for a fresh start. Orphaned and in the care of her aunt and uncle, Honoria is struggling with her new circumstances.When the town’s witch story reaches Honoria, she wonders if this witch can reunite Honoria with her lost parents.

    14. Jordan was nice enough to let me have an advanced copy. I was very impressed with the story. She paints a wonderful picture with words and really puts you in the scene with the characters. When this books is released in print I am so buying a copy so I can have her sign it, it will easily become a collector's item.

    15. Escape from Witchwood Hollow is a Young Adult fantasy book centering around Honoria, a fifteen-year-old girl who lost her parents in the 9/11 attacks. She finds herself in Arnn, NY, in a new school, living with her aunt and uncle. Honoria experiences all the problems that the new kid, who is a bit different, would experience. She is also introduced to Witchwood Hollow where local legends tell of a witch who traps people in the woods. Honoria shares the story with Lady Elizabeth Clifford from the [...]

    16. A quick and intriguing read! It took me a little while to get fully immersed into the story but once I did I really enjoyed it. Its told from 3 different girls lives in 3 different time periods, which I thought was awesome. We learn how the woods became known as Witchwood Holllow and why, when people enter, they do not leave. It was interesting to see each girls story play out and then come together centuries later. I loved learning about Witchwood Hollow and found it fascinating. Woods are alwa [...]

    17. A Hollow Out Of TimeThis book was very different. I was intrigued and a bit mystified by the non linear format of time in this book But as long as you truly pay attention you can keep up with the storyline pretty well. I was incredibly shocked by the ending of this book and would not recommend it for a regular young adult audiences because of its disturbing nature.Honoria is adrift. She misses her parents and her friends. She misses her regular private school and her city. Her aunt and uncle dec [...]

    18. I wasn't sure if I would like this book, as I tend to find fantasy young adult books a little too predictable, but "Escape from Witchwood Hollow" was very far from that. You are cleverly given bits and pieces of information, and you think you know where the story is heading, but every new page has a surprise. This is not your standard "cursed wood" story, and that makes it for a very rewarding reading experience.You really feel for the characters and have no problem following the story (even tho [...]

    19. REVIEW: ESCAPE FROM WITCHWOOD HOLLOW by Jordan Elizabeth MierekA cunningly conceived, engrossing fable which examines the nature of eccentricity in the face of social conformity. From an herbal healer in the 16th century, to a mid 19th century lonely young who uses tapping to soothe her roiled emotions (what contemporary use calls EFT), to an orphan who loses both parents at the World Trade Center, individualism shines like a beacon, especially when contrasted with the pervasive darkness of the [...]

    20. Someone: Would you like this book? I could give it to you in exchange for a honest review.Me: No, thanks. I have so many other in queue right now. I’ll get it myself and read it in the near future.In the near future, 2 years laterHey, it’s almost the near future, I should read this book.4th page of the bookIn order to keep it kids friendly and YAish the writer invented on the spot a new cuss for the more intense moments of the story, which is “damsel in distress”. Flamed banana, that’s [...]

    21. I had received a digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Thanks to the generous author and Sarah :)4.5 stars!Escape from Witchwood Hollow was an amazing read with intriguing writing,a great pace and a wonderful story! Admittedly,it didn't intrigue me that much at first but as I read on,I realized the book was hard to put down. Trying to get settled in a small town and hoping to fit in, I could relate to Honoria. She was a great character and despite her situation,she could be [...]

    22. 4 out of 5 stars ***spoilers***The book, Escape from Witchwood Hollow, by Jordon Elizabeth Mierek, is an enchanting splash of originality and mystery. Her style of writing has a suspenseful aspect full of imagery. Every chapter is filled with metaphors and similes that give a flair of magic within this fantasy. Each chapter has different perspectives mostly of the three girls who found their way to Witchwood Hollow at various decades. In the future, she might consider reading it one more time af [...]

    23. "What lay amongst the trees?”I received a free copy from the author in exchange with an honest review.Okay. So, Escape from Witchwood Hollow is not a book I usually read. It's a paranormal book with a touch of historical. The book is set in three different time periods and also with three main charactersThe first story is about Honoria whose parents were passed in the Twin Tower's incident. To overcome her sadness, she, her brother, aunt and uncle moved to Arnn, New York. The first day in scho [...]

    24. I liked this story from the beginning. The author is clear, imaginative and gives life to her characters early on so the reader is able to get a good image of them mentally and identify with them easily. The author did a good job of telling a multi-generational tale with a lot of unexpected twists. Some of this story reminded me a bit of Moll Dyer, especially early on in the book. I've read a lot of books that fall into this genre in the last year, and many of them have been disappointing, but t [...]

    25. Everyone in Arnn - a small farming town with more legends than residents - knows the story of Witchwood Hollow: if you venture into the whispering forest, the witch will trap your soul among the shadowed trees. After losing her parents in a horrific terrorist attack on the Twin Towers, fifteen-year-old Honoria and her older brother escape New York City to Arnn. In the lure of that perpetual darkness, Honoria finds hope, when she should be afraid. Perhaps the witch can reunite her with her lost p [...]

    26. I enjoyed the book about a teen whose life is changed forever when her parents die in the World Trade Center on 911, and she moves to a small town with her aunt, uncle, and brother. The writing is very good and the story is complex, jumping from the 1600s to the mid-1800s as it goes. It's well produced, a good read for young adults with a yen for something both supernatural and a little different. How will things change for the contemporary protagonist because of the past? Read it and find out.

    27. Don’t piss off a witch! Escape from Witchwood Hollow has a nice pace; moving between centuries as we follow the characters. It has a witchy Halloween feel to it. The tale is more than simply a spooky story though; I came away with the Tuck Everlasting bittersweet taste in my mouth. Thoughtfully written and developed with compelling characters it kept me engaged. I had to know if Albertine would ever escape, so I ended staying up till 1:30 in the morning to see how it ended. I highly recommend [...]

    28. This is a fun little book. I enjoyed the unique approach to fantasy, and the mystery elements kept me turning pages. The style is unusual, and might not appeal to everyone, but I greatly enjoyed the characters and the way they brought the story to life. It wouldn't make the top of my recommendation list, but if you're looking for something outside the usual fantasy formula, I think this book would be a great choice.I received a free copy of this book in return for a review.

    29. Received a complimentary copy to read and review. Great book. I couldn't put it down. Love the characters and the world Jordan has created. It has some great twists and turns. Readers are drawn into the story from the first page. Add it to your TBR list you won't be disappointed. It's got just the right amount of horror to keep the reader turning the page. I look forward to reading more of Jordan's books.

    30. Other than the fact that I read 'Arnn' as Arm, this was quite an entertaining read. Jordan did a great job with the written word and you could actually feel the scenes come to life in your mind.
