The Witcher Chime Amity Green Book Review


The Witcher Chime by Amity Green
Genre: Horror Dark Fantasy
A deadly, possessive entity imprints on members of Savannah Caleman’s family, making her the latest object of obsession in this chilling, historical tale of haunted legacy and terror.

Savannah Caleman’s family has been coming apart since the early 1920’s. Now in the late 1980’s the evil plaguing her family dons a suit and tie and introduces himself, giving Savannah an ultimatum—endure endless terror or grant his freedom. She must decide between her sister’s safety and aiding a monster that can’t be identified as an angel or a demon. Either way, Savannah is torn, and takes to single-handedly running the family affairs with precision as she takes care of her sister. Terrifying events play out as the Witcher Place is transformed to a rich estate using old family resources. Releasing a monster to roam at will isn’t a stellar option, no matter the promises he makes. And he’s more than a monster. He knows her innermost thoughts. He’s in her head, becoming the ideal man for her, manipulating her thoughts. But the stains of murder and torment cannot be erased. He has fallen, been shackled in the mine beneath the Colorado mountains, and now has plans to rise once more using Savannah as the key to regain grace. Horror abounds and Savannah turns to distant relatives for answers, fearing her family’s stigma of insanity is real and has spread, caused by an evil as ancient as Genesis.

What I Really Think of This Novel
The author's blurb above spot on as to the description of this novel and no need to repeat it here. I loved the beginning June 1922. Takes you right to what it was like to work in the mining camps and the tragedy that can happen. A widow moves in with her brother-in-law and his family and this is when the abuse begins. Fast forward to 1988 and we join Savannah and her family that have now moved to the Witcher Place and we watch as her loving parents turn into snarling abusive parents.  

  The novel is not a fun read. It's a beat down read. Basically you have this fallen angel/demon who can make Savanah see and feel whatever torture he wants. He tells her he loves her and in the same breath that he will kill her sister if she leaves him. She does her best to fight back but he beats her down every single time and there are a lot of times. I'm exhausted. There is no escaping this demon.

 Props for the writer as she came up with different scenes each time he wants to "teach her a lesson". I liked how she wasn't repeating herself with the same phrase and descriptions as we see in so many novels. I also liked how the character Savanah, even though she is still young, is smart enough to not believe the smooth talker's lies. 

 I think the characters will remain in my mind for awhile; at least until Book 2.
