People are actively hostile to local witches, there is no deep concern over murders, bratty teens are unchallenged and people have inaccurate notions and this was not emotionally honest. Evil people ruthlessly assert themselves, there is no ethical state, locals don’t always act in a friendly way, there is no social credit and there is judgement and unsubtle cultural conversation about witch trials.
Idiots have impunity, there is community resistance to sense and a rambunctious idiot ‘heroine’. This ill-conceived novel finally reveals a baddie of innate malice and vindictive character who does and says things that are not in the heroine’s interest. The ending reveals ancient deep family disputes and schisms and a legacy of anger and silence. Various women are riven with desperation and are bleak of outlook.
This was a textual oddity in which panic-stupid people run around in a plot staunchly opposed to sense. This novel causes annoyance and contempt.
