Publisher's Summary

Deep in the Appalachian Mountains, a monstrous evil rises, and the only one who can stand against it is a teen-age witch who doesn't believe in magic.

Grieving and lost after the death of her parents, Jenny Morgan is sent to West Virginia to live with an aunt she's never met. It's there that Jenny is confronted with an unbelievable family heritage of witchcraft and magic - something she immediately dismisses as old-fashioned superstitions. However, once her new home is threatened by deadly horrors straight out of myth and folklore, her aunt's stories become impossible to ignore. 

Now Jenny and her three new friends - friends with dark secrets all their own - are the only ones who stand a chance of stopping the growing evil, but only if Jenny can embrace her arcane heritage. Little does Jenny know that wielding her power will attract the attention of an even greater evil - the same immortal entity her parents died to protect her from.

Fantasy Folklore!

Someone said this started out slow. They're wrong. My attention was grabbed from the beginning. While I read this book, forest fires were threatening my home. through all that, I couldn't put the book down! Well done Jay!

Magic, ghosts, and mysterious death

Jenny’s parents were just found dead and she’s sent to live with an aunt she’s never known. She comes to find out that she has magic even though she disbelieves these things until faces with a woman who might be behind the deaths of her parents. Will Jenny rise to the task? Will she accept her heritage? Great characters and gripping story.

Lots of action

An interesting mix of characters comes together with a creative mix of monsters and confused motivations to create a story packed with action, twists and turns, and some romance.

The world building was really well done, I spent the whole book picturing everything that was happening. The book came alive for me.

The characters are well crafted and feel whole and real, their actions seem natural and they're easy to connect with.

Thoroughly entertaining this book left me wanting more even thought the story ends at a good stopping point. I enjoyed my glimpse into this world and I want more of these characters and the world they're in.

I enjoyed the narration, the pacing and phrasing carried the emotions of the story and the character voices were believable.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

Good read

The story was pretty good. Not my favorite but I might listen to it again. Janel is a pretty good narrator, especially since this is probably her first time, I can’t find anything else she has read. She is definitely one to watch. I would listen to her stuff again.

Awesome!

Get to know Jenny, a teenage girl who is sent to live with her aunt after her parents are killed. She soon learns of her magical ancestry and she and her friends are on a mission to destroy the evil that threatens to envelop them all.

Action-packed, well written and well narrated story - a gem! Really loved the world that the author, Jay Barnson, created. Janel Valentine did a great job narrating :) I was engrossed in the story, and really enjoyed it! Definitely recommended :)

Very enjoyable

This one had me from the first page... With the death of Jenny’s parents. I like how she found her aunt and with that she found herself and a purpose. Lots of twists and you never could tell what was coming next. Great performance, great job with the characters and accents. She really kept me enthralled in the story.

Fantastic!

My daughter and I really enjoyed listening to this on a road trip together. The beginning reminds me a bit of True Blood.

Promising start

I am often drawn to stories such as this and found this one to be a bit different. It seemed like it had a bit of a slow start in order to setup the different characters, but once it got going was quite enjoyable. I also liked the author not blindly following the formula of an over-obvious love triangle.

The narration was ok, but I think at times led to a harder listen than some of the other audiobooks I’ve listened to. I could never quite tell why but there was something about it that I found a bit harder to immerse myself in.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Good book

Gods book full of magic. The main character has no idea of her heritage and it is great seeing how she adjusts to finding out about it. The narration fits very well with the book as well.

Blood Creek Witch

“I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”

I absolutely loved this book and can not wait until the next installment!
Although the characters are all in their teens, this book is for adults & teens alike!
A witch (Jenny), a giant slayer (Jack), a shifter (Jessabelle) and a medium (Sean).
The story starts with Jenny who is devastated over the loss of her parents who have died in a car accident. Jenny is just about to graduate when her Aunt Hattie comes to help her make arrangements and to take Jenny back home with her to Blood Creek (Maple Bend). Jenny is then thrown into a mythical world that brings her to meet her new friends Jack, Jessabelle & Sean.
This story is about 4 teens that are coming of age and learning how their powers work.
The 4 teens are in a race against a powerful witch (Evelyn) to find the gate and to figure out how to make their way through said gate. Once they figure out how to get through the gate Jenny meets her grandmother who protects the gate on the other side. Where the battles continue.
I found the characters to be well thought out and intriguing as well as entertaining. Once I started listening to this book I didn't want to put it down!
Although there is no cliffhanger to speak of in this book, it definitely sets the story up for the next book.
I can't wait to continue on with the next book!
A must read!!
