REVIEW

BLACKWOOD puts a great paranormal spin on a piece of history. The unravelling mystery is tense and exciting. The story is creepy, absorbing and full of surprises. Blackwood is set in modern times in a small town with a rich history. The history of the characters and the Lost Colony weaves deep and is explored thoroughly, allowing the little pieces of the mystery to click together one by one. I thought it was fantastic.

BLURB

On Roanoke Island, the legend of the 114 people who mysteriously vanished from the Lost Colony hundreds of years ago is just an outdoor drama for the tourists, a story people tell. But when the island faces the sudden disappearance of 114 people now, an unlikely pair of 17-year-olds may be the only hope of bringing them back. Miranda Blackwood, a misfit girl from the island’s most infamous family, and Phillips Rawlings, an exiled teen criminal who hears the voices of the dead, must dodge everyone from federal agents to long-dead alchemists as they work to uncover the secrets of the new Lost Colony. The one thing they can’t dodge is each other.
