I liked this one well enough, but I have plenty of complaints My main objection is that the entire issue with Nelda and Esau was gross and disturbing, and I don t know how any of the members of their community went along with that mess Also, Nelda s decision near the end is the main reason I would not recommend this book for kids Ewww The horde of girls and women obsessed with Nathaniel was not believable, especially when accompanied by the illustrations of Nathaniel, who looked like a rathe I liked this one well enough, but I have plenty of complaints My main objection is that the entire issue with Nelda and Esau was gross and disturbing, and I don t know how any of the members of their community went along with that mess Also, Nelda s decision near the end is the main reason I would not recommend this book for kids Ewww The horde of girls and women obsessed with Nathaniel was not believable, especially when accompanied by the illustrations of Nathaniel, who looked like a rather homely professor Sure, he s a warlock, but some of these females were simpering over him before any magical influence on his part And finally, the use of the comma in this book was bizarre and overdone Instead of colons, semi colons, periods, etc., most of the sentences are what should be several sentences just strung together with commas Please tell me this is just bad editing and not the way British children s books are written I am still going to read the last book, as I want to know how things end up, but I can see why the second book wasn t republished in the U.S Not as good as the Whitby witches I also feel that the author lost touch with how old his characters were. The second book in the Whitby series picks up a few months after the first one left off, and introduces evenweird and wonderful characters This is a well written children s fantasy that doesn t try to patronise it s audience if anything some of the themes might be a little too grown up. A bit of a slow burner, I didn t enjoy this as much as The Whitby Witches and it took me a while to get through Maybe I m just too old to be reliving my yoof by rereading my old favourites as an adult, but I do also think this is a series that may have been better as a standalone with Alice Boston saving Whitby and the world in book 1 and leaving it there Moving on to The Whitby Child but I m not holding much hope for enjoying it anythan this. I really loved this book too the illustrations are amazing and just help to drag the reader even further into the stories Just as good as the Whitby Witches and still full of page turning adventures. It s a bit grim, would have preferred a bithappy, but I enjoyed it. {E-PUB} ⚦ A Warlock in Whitby ⚤ One cold November night, high on Whitby s abbey plain, a scale covered claw burrows out of the earth, and into the pale moonlight a hideous creature worms its wayAs the morning train stops at Whitby station a mysterious man alights, and looks about him with keen interestOn Whitby beach, Nelda the aufwader waits, her heart filled with the dread that a terrible doom is about to overcome her peopleIn this second griping book in the Whitby series, Miss Boston, Jennet and Ben are pitted against a new and even deadly enemy but can they succeed a second time Just as exciting as the last one
