We're back in Whitby for the third instalment of The Witching Legacy.

Lil is discarded on the beach having fallen through time following her last battle with Mr Dark. The Aufwaders, who saw her arrival and find Lil near dead, take her to the only person they trust; Whitby Witch, Nanny Burdon. With memories of the future that Lil has just left threatening to overwhelm her, she knows she must find her best friend Verne, who she is certain is stuck in this time too.

A new resident in Bagdale Hall ha

The third instalment in the Witchling legacy series meets and exceeds all expectations. It was fast paced, thrilling, suitably gory and full of the Jarvis trademark stings in the tail. I don't want to give away spoilers but the point of the 'briding' was a master stroke. You'd think after five books already set in Whitby that Jarvis didn't have too much left in the way of big surprises but Time of Blood proves you wrong. There are cameos

If you haven’t read the last book, it is impossible to talk about this one without spoilers – so pleased be warned. Read The Power of Dark and The Devil’s Paintbox first, then come back for this one. Because after all the dark doings in the last book and that sharp ending, Lil’s adventures have only just begun.

Waking up in Whitby after travelling through time is one thing, but waking up in a Whitby Lil can barely even imagine, more than a century in the past is something that takes some getting

After the last book, I didn’t want to wait long before starting on this one so it zoomed to the top of my reading pile. It was fascinating reading about Whitby in the late 19th century and I though the new characters were a great addition. However, there were a few moments when I had to roll my eyes at Lil’s stupidity. Come on Lil, you’re three books into the series, you should know how the bad guys operate by now! Also, while I appreciate it helps the author out when the characters aren’t too c ...more

I was lucky to get an ARC copy of this third instalment of the fab series from Robin Jarvis and it didn't disappoint. It picked up from where The Devil's Paintbox left off but this time you find the two main characters Lil and Verne have travelled back in time to a very strange Victorian Whitby where they meet yet another of the 'infamous' Whitby Witches and a host of colourful characters. This latest chapter was very dark and gory in parts but the suspense and tension built up to a spine tingli ...more

This is great fun. The third in the Witching Legacy series, Mr Jarvis sends his young heroes back in time to 1890s Whitby in a great nod to just about every Gothic trope you could want in a story.

The twist of Dark’s intentions with the briding is wonderful and the end is going to be intriguing for anyone who has read The Whitby Witches. The wait for the next book will seem very long!

This didn't really fit in quite as well with the first two books, but it's still a fun read for fans of Jarvis, which I have been for over 25 years! :D ...more

Come closer... that's right. Settle down here, and hear how I've loved Robin Jarvis' books since I first came across 'The Wyrd Museum' trilogy in two-thousand-and-mumble, when I was a shockingly young twenty-something. I dread to think what it was like to be his target age group; the events that took place in that sequestered London rat's maze were devastating not just because of their unflinching horror, but more for their emotionally draining blend of the tragic and the beautiful. There's alwa ...more
