Journal Entry 1 by wildwolverine from Fredrikstad, Østfold fylke Norway on Sunday, September 09, 2012
This was a pleasant read. The story is very well written, and i do like that the plot is not plain "good vs evil". The cause of the villain is actually a noble one, though his methods and the consequenses of them are strongly questionable.

Most suitable for young teenagers, i guess.

Journal Entry 4 by Gealach at Nacka, Södermanland Sweden on Thursday, August 29, 2013
I picked it up from the table at the convention because it seemed to be about something supernatural, but when I got home I didn't think it looked very interesting, the cover was rather boring and the story seemed like some typical teenage thing.

When I finally got around to reading it, the book turned out to be a very pleasant surprise, I really enjoyed it!

I totally agree with the first entry here, it's not obvious who is really good or evil and I liked the fact that the witch and the cat who are supposed to help Jane don't always agree on everything either. That made the story a lot more interesting. I also like the way the author uses words and older language that is probably difficult for a younger reader to understand, but explains them in a clever way.

I will probably start a bookring with this...

The book has arrived. And, as usual, had I forgotten all about it!

Journal Entry 8 by babelfisk at Jönköping, Småland Sweden on Wednesday, October 16, 2013
I agree with the others: it gets more interesting when you discover that the border between good and evil isn't absolute. I was a bit suspicious about the ending but it turned out nice! I like the book!

Journal Entry 11 by Nordpirat at Bromma, Stockholm Sweden on Friday, November 01, 2013
To me this book was a disappointment.
I was a bit surprised I didn't like it. I thought I would like it when I read the previous journal entries.
I found it kind of shallow and superficial and the story and the characters irritated me.

Finally got around to reading this little book, and I must say, that I quite enjoyed it.
I found it an excellent escape on a couple of cold Winter evenings.
Will pass along soon to another BCer whom I hope will enjoy it as much as I did.
