#Review of ESCAPE FROM WITCHWOOD HOLLOW by @JayliaDarkness

How far into the hollow would you go?

After losing her parents in a terrorist attack on the Twin Towers, fifteen-year-old Honoria escapes New York City to Arnn—a farming town with more legends than residents, and a history of witchcraft and secrets best left buried.

Everyone in Arnn knows the story of Witchwood Hollow: if you venture into the whispering forest, the witch will trap your soul among the shadowed trees. In the lure of that perpetual darkness, Honoria finds hope when she should be afraid, and a past of missing children and broken promises.  To save the citizens of Arnn from becoming the witch’s next victims, she must find the truth behind the woman’s madness. How deep into Witchwood Hollow does Honoria dare venture?”

ESCAPE FROM WITCHWOOD HOLLOW is Jordan Elizabeth’s first novel.  This young adult fantasy, published through Curiosity Quills Press, is now available for purchase. 
Jordan Elizabeth, formally Jordan Elizabeth Mierek, can’t get enough of the woods, be it splashing through a stream, sitting beneath an ancient oak, or following a path up a hill.  Some of those adventures have led to abandoned foundations.  Exploring the rocks and crumbling bricks sparked Jordan to imagine who might have lived there before, and that train of thought carried her to a wicked legend and an enchanted hollow.  You can contact Jordan via her website,

Review of

I was a little late with my review, but that means I got to read most of Escape From Witchwood Hollow in the actual woods last weekend on a camping trip. And it's the perfect creepy forest read! :)

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 think to use "damsel in distress" as a curse word. lol I loved the dark, layered, and fascinating story and I look forward to reading more from this debut author!
