About the Book:

The Witching Elm


Seventeen-year-old sorcerer Toby Corvin has one desire: to get back to Maremount, a world of talking ravens, ancient spells, and sinister bone wardens. Not only to fight a tyrannical monster, but to reunite with his girlfriend.
 There’s only one problem—he’s stuck in downtown Boston.
 After a brutal civil war forced Toby into our world, he took refuge in Mather Academy, blending in with the students in the prestigious boarding school. Sheltering in its creaky old walls, he secretly plots to save his home.
 But if anything can distract him from his mission, it’s his wild-haired and intriguing classmate Fiona. Of course, she has her own distractions with Jack: rich, mysterious, and annoyingly attractive.
 When a ghostly army from Maremount descends upon Boston, Toby and Fiona must work together, racing desperately to stop the slaughter. In the process, they face unspeakable danger while unearthing dark secrets of New England's past—a past that holds the key to saving both worlds from destruction.

**MY REVIEW**

The Witching Elm had my undivided attention from sentence one. It threw you right into a mystical town, with an undefeatable, super scary villain, treachery and breaking the rules, a city about to burn and magic that includes shapeshifting!

Crazy, right? Yeah, that's what I thought!

Toby Corvin wants to get back to his city but is stuck at a boarding school in Boston. For the next few chapters after the prologue, you're introduced to all the characters, the school, until WHAM- there is a seance, with a ghost and a poem

"We wait beneath corrupted frozen ground.
Unconsecrated, tangles roots enshroud, our crumpled necks and long smothered embers,
Where the hours fly and death is lamented."

And a kickboxing champion professor that researches Toby's fictional town, and curses and death on campus, and did I mention MAGIC?

This book was EVERYTHING I expected it to be, and more! I honestly have nothing more to say other than READ IT!
