First I have to say that I was first drawn to "A Witch In Time Saves Nine" by the very colourful and intriguing house on the cover, it certainly gives the apt and fitting feeling of being haunted and unusual. When twelve year old Molly Perkins' out of work dad is offered a job in Manchester he has no qualms in accepting the offer even though accommodation is included. This means a move to Manchester, leaving their very modern and happy home in Sutton in Ashfield. When the day arrives to move, Molly is dreading it and her fears are justified when they pull up outside of a lonely, derelict Victorian semi in a run down street. After starting a new school and making friends with a girl called Sarah, Molly begins to hear the voice of a boy through her bedroom wall. Together with Sarah, they begin to investigate who the boy is and where he is hiding - since behind the wall is only derelict land. Can they help save him and what will they encounter in doing so??? This book kicks off pretty quickly and is a thrilling adventure story that both young and old would happily enjoy. In fact, I believe this book could easily give Harry Potter a run for its money. So much imagination by the author - Brian Kevin Porter - has gone into the story, from a shrinking and talking book to fantastical evil beasts and magical talking crystals. There's also some very warm and engaging characters, good and bad they are portrayed brilliantly - I loved the relationship Molly had with Sarah who in particular is funny and Peter, the one responsible for all the malice, truly is evil and deadly. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this book, again this is a story that would work really well as a movie and suspect it would be appreciated by the older audience as much as the younger ones. There's another book to follow - "The Crypt of Jackson Priest Book Two" and I wouldn't hesitate to read that one too when published.
