The fire was a family tragedy that Jamie can't forget, even in his dreams. And now there is something terrifying happening to him in Crownhill, the village where he's been sent to get over his problems. Something to do with an evil old witch who gets into his nightmares, and a frightened girl, the victim of a long-ago witch hunt, whose presence lingers on.
As the dark secrets of Crownhill are revealed Jamie has to confront his worst fears in order to free himself from the horrors of the past.
Marcus Sedgwick weaves extracts from reports of a seventeenth-century witch hunt into a tense and brilliant novel.

Review by MarionII
Dark and sinister, this book grabs you with both hands - hide under the duvet!!! :) An enjoyable read for young adults, it kept me gripped enough to read in one sitting (I'm 40!).
