    Third book in the series again, fun and enjoyable reading or rather listening This one was a bit darker than the previous two, bitwitchcraft involved but it s quite fun learning something about gypsies in the 17th century, though the author s explanations at the end of each book are a bit annoying and seem just that liiiittle bit patronising but i guess you could just skip them anyway maybe that s my age showing through

    My daughter and I are thoroughly enjoying this series They are beautifully written, exciting and we can t wait to read the next one The witch in this story was particularly scary and my daughter loved the secret passages and the hidden room in the inn A wonderful middle grade read.
