The Whitby Witches by Robin Jarvis
Since the death of their parents Jennet and Ben have been in one foster home after another. Now at last, kind old family friend has agreed to take them into her home in the picturesque seaside town of Whitby. The children hope that this will become a permanent home for them, if they can only keep Ben's strange powers a secret.
What is not know to them is that Aunt Alice has a few secrets of her own, along with the quiet town of Whitby. Shortly after they arrive in Whitby, they find out that an evil force from the past is trying to rise up once again. Just when everyting seems to be going good, strange things begin to happen.
Why is Ben spending all his time at the dark caves along the shore? What can he see there that others cant? What he will finds there may be just the thing to save Whitby from the most powerful evil the town has ever known. Will he be brave enough, smart enough to fight for what is to come?
This story is really a page turner, I could hardly put it down. This is Book One of the Whitby Witches Trilogy and I will be wating for the next one to arrive...
