The Soprano is a dark and atmospheric story of witchcraft, jealousy, hatred and revenge This is not a quick thrill fast paced novel, but a slower moving, foreboding and unnerving tale with depth and realism that left me feeling a little uncomfortable reading it at night while home alone For the whole time I was reading this, I felt a cloud of darkness hovering over me, and I don t think that was just because of the Cornish rain we re having at the moment.Although this story is set in the North The Soprano is a dark and atmospheric story of witchcraft, jealousy, hatred and revenge This is not

whole time I was reading this, I felt a cloud of darkness hovering over me, and I don t think that was just because of the Cornish rain we re having at the moment.Although this story is set in the North Staffordshire Moors, I couldn t help but picture this all happening here in Cornwall The church on the cover made me think of St Materiana s Church in Tintagel, which we stumbled across in what seemed like the middle of nowhere on a rugged country walk a few years ago The witchcraft focus made me think of Boscastle, probably due to the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic there The dark and atmospheric feel put me in mind of Bodmin Moor On that note, I loved Jamaica Inn, by Daphne du Maurier, and I would certainly put this book in the same category for dark atmospheric feel, just withwitchiness I suspect that s not actually a proper word, but I like it.Just when I thought I d hadthan my fair share of reading about creepy dolls in Frozen Charlotte last week, I was again faced with evencreepy dolls in this book Eek This story triggered a memory from a few years ago We d recently moved to Cornwall and loved exploring and going on country and coastal walks However, we got lost one time and stumbled across a tree in the woods with lots of colourful ribbons tied to it As pretty as it looked, I felt myself on the verge of a Blair Witch inspired panic attack, and was relieved when we stumbled across a couple of strangers with a map, so we were able to find our way back to civilisation Phew The Soprano is the first book I ve read by this author, but it won t be the last I bought the Occult Horror Trilogy, Father of Lies, a few months ago, so I m looking forward to reading that at some point too This was a real slow burner of a book, where lots of different threads of a story came together There were a lot of characters who were all connected to each other, one way or another, and that make this novel very intriguing to read.I have to admit that I got the shivers a couple of time, but that is to be expected when you read a Sarah England book, after all She has a way of building atmosphere and of telling a eerie story very well and I had no idea where it was all heading until right tow This was a real slow burner of a book, where lots of different threads of a story came together There were a lot of characters who were all connected to each
