A book and a series that's sure to win a following
John Booth’s “House of Silver Magic”, is sure to become a favorite of readers who love stories about ghosts and sinister neighbors. In this gem of a book, a recently widowed mother and her three teenage children are kicked out of their house in a fraudulent auction. Soon after they learn that a man named Ezekiel has left them a large old house that is completely furnished, has some resident ghosts, creepy murderous neighbors, and is full of magic silver that the neighbors are determined to get at any cost. I found it a very enjoyable read, with lots of surprises, twists and turns, and a very interesting (and very odd-looking) group of house ghosts.
This is Book One in the Magic Series, which, if they’re anything like “The House of Silver Magic”, are books to begin looking for.
This is an excellent 5 star read.
