The world is lying to you. Is that news? It must be very upsetting.
Richard Fitcher found it upsetting.
He’s a witch hunter who doesn’t believe in witches, and tonight he’s taking a reporter and her cameraman on a witch hunt. He’s all ready to jazz it up with spooky noises and a gimmicky magic ritual that locates witches. People like that kind of crap, right? But there’s a problem.
It worked this time.
So now Richard is forced to call up old knowledge and power he didn’t believe to be real, challenging things that crawled out of the pit, if he has any hope of surviving the night. But this loser might actually find some value—the pit does have a tendency to shave off your uneven edges—if it doesn’t kill you.
Either way, it’s a lovely night for a witching.
Uncaged Review: Richard doesn’t believe in witches, although he’s a witch hunter. He thought the club was just a role playing club with creepy subject matter. When a reporter needs to cover a story of what is happening in his town and they want to go along on a witch hunt with Richard, he hams it up until things start going awry. When they reach an old house, the reporter and her camera man are enthralled, and Richard must use all of his “very little knowledge” to get out. Thankfully he listened somewhat to his Sensei, hopefully some of it sank in.
This book is humorous, creepy, scary and suspenseful all in one. Richard doesn’t believe in wights either, especially one that he can bargain with chips and candy bars.
This is a well done book by a new author, and for a debut, he hits it out of the park. You will laugh and keep the light on at night after and while you are reading this one. Pick it up and see if Richard makes it out of this one – you’ll cheer this “not your normal action hero” the whole way through. Reviewed by Cyrene
