All you’ve got to do is escape and find Mercury, the Black Witch who eats boys. And do that before your seventeenth birthday.

MY RATING: 4 Starts


I didn’t give to it 5 stars because, even if I totally loved this book I was expecting a little more… sooo, basically I’m waiting for the second book of this series to know what is going to happen… because now I seriously hope that Sally Green can redeem herself with the next book.

When I started reading this book I was kind of skeptical because I read the first four pages or something like that and I was thinking that the story was getting too strange, not because of the plot, if that makes any sense, but because of the way the story was being told. It was being told on the second person, so basically the main character was talking to “you”… ok, I know… I’m confusing your brain… I apologize.

The story… so what do I have to say about it? I liked it. The main character is a guy… I mean… a boy, since he is only 12 years old when the story begins, but I liked it… I enjoyed the characters, the plot… I can say to you that I like the way Sally Green writes… I don’t love it, but I like it… I’ve read a lot worst. I think that it is a easy, REALLY easy reading… and I’m not saying this just because my edition of this book has REALLY HUGE LETTERS … ok?

The reason why I picked this book was because: FIRST – it was signed by the author; SECOND – it is about witches and I like witches and magical stuff… A LOT!


If I recommend this book to you? OF COURSE I do… maybe I’ll not recommend it to you if you are not able to read the second book right after the first one (I’m talking but I don’t have the second book yet… it comes out in March I think…) because you’ll want to know what is going to happen next… I know what I’m saying… I’ve been there… I MEAN… I’M STILL HERE!!!!!!!

If eventually you want to get this book you can get it at BookDepository, just CLICK HERE.
