I ordered The Lighthouse Witches a while back, and I’m just now getting to it. It was time for something spooky. Let’s get to the review.
Two sisters go missing on a remote Scottish Island. One is found twenty years later, and she hasn’t aged a day. The locals tried to warn Liv about the creepy history of the lighthouse, but she doesn’t really believe them. But then the history starts to threaten her family.
My Thoughts on The Lighthouse Witches
I loved The Lighthouse Witches in the beginning. It was full of folklore and mystery. The witch aspect was strong, and the timeline to the past was amazing. But parts of the plot were questionable. Clover is found twenty years later, and is still seven, and no one questions it. The hospital and police act as if everything is normal.
Then toward the middle of the book the plot drags a little. The atmosphere is all that kept me interested. And when the story picked back up, I loved it again. I thought I would finally get a creepy witch story that actually stayed witchy to the end.
However, in the last half of the book a sci-fi plotline came out of left field. I might have enjoyed that element in another book, but I was sad to see the folklore plotline dissolve. I enjoyed parts of this book a lot which is why I’m still giving it three stars, but I wish it had stayed consistent all the way through.
My Rating: 3/5
