Two months on from the tragedy of the burned house, and Jonny has spent most of the long summer days in bed, hiding from the miserable rain. Ghost-hunting is in his past. After all, it has proved to be little more than a curse.

However, when his dad reaches out to him after an eighteen-month absence, Jonny can’t hide his fury. He also can’t say no when his father asks him t

A quick and easy third installment of this series. Character development and world building were great. The first 30% was a bit slow but after that it really picked up. I felt there could have been a little more meat to the story, maybe a couple more twists or situations to vamp up the mystery and suspense. The MC is growing and his thoughts are becoming more responsible and mature. I hope the next book digs deeper into his relationships and self worth. The first book remains my favorite but tha ...more

The Witch Hunt follows on from the devastating ending of book two. Jonny is grieving the loss of his friend and has spent his summer in hiding, determined to turn his back on his gift and try have some kind of normal teenage life.

But when Jonny's father reaches out after over a years silence, Jonny decides it might be a good time to escape his home and thoughts and maybe build his relationship back up with his father.

It's not long before things take a sinister turn, and Jonny realises there's

After the tragedy events of the burned house, Jonny had decided to leave his “gift” behind and be a normal kid. When his dad reached out, after 18 months of absence, Jonny was furious, he didn’t want to see him, but then again, would it be such a bad idea to hear him out? Little didn’t he know that a new adventure was expecting him, right where his dad was living and this time he couldn’t turn his back, too many caring people were involved.

After reading the first two books in the series I was so

I was given a free copy of this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Our series protagonist, Jonny Roberts returns for this latest paranormal adventure, and this one is probably the darkest yet. Weaving together complex problems, both real and supernatural, Johnny has a lot to deal with and the stakes are higher than ever.

I think any kid who grew up in a less than perfect home will be able to relate to our hero's struggles. I loved how themes of familial loyalty are addressed and it touches on t

Thank you to Alexander Lound for approaching our blog and sending me an eARC of this book!

It’s always a nice day when I get a notification from an author I’ve highlighted in the past that they have a new book coming out. Earlier this year it was “Atonement”, which saw the end of the Cerenia Chronicles, and now we finally get a new story from Alexander Lound’s Jonny Roberts Series, “The Witch Hunt”. I was already thoroughly invested in the stories

THE WITCH HUNT by Alexander Lound

Two months on from the burned house, and Jonny spends the long summer days in bed, protected from the miserable rain. Ghost-hunting is in his past. After all, it has proved to be little more than a curse.

However, when his dad reaches out to him after an eighteen-month absence, Jonny can’t hide his fury. He also can’t say no when his father asks him to stay at his new home, in the quaint, little village of Peene. Maybe it will heal the hurt between them. At the ve

Thank you to the author for giving and an advanced copy of this for a review. This is the third book in the series, and after reading the first one I fell I love with the character Jonny.

However Jonny quickly realises that something isn't right with his step mum Bella, she experiences night ter

Omg this book was fantastic! We see Jonny grow so much more in this book then the previous ones and I loved it. I enjoyed that the emotions presented throughout I could relate to especially while he was trying to move on. Before I continue... if you are looking at this review lol I'm assuming you read the first 2 books. If you haven't I highly recommend you read those 1st since this is the 3rd book in the series. Aaron is one of my favorite characters and I'm so glad we got to learn alittle bit ...more

I was lucky enough to receive an advanced copy to read and review, and I promise honesty.

This is an incredibly fast paced, paranormal YA fiction. Having read all three books of the Jonny Robert Series now, I can easily say this was my favourite, with a change of scenery, a darker undertone, some new characters, and of course a new ghost to face and to help.

I'm always sceptical of any paranormal reads involving mediumship, or touching upon details like crystals, candles, space cleansing etc. as

I was very grateful to receive a copy of this book in return for my honest feedback. After reading the first two books I was familiar with the main characters Jonny and Aaron. The book carried on with how Jonny dealt with everything after the ending in book 2! ( won’t say too much as I don’t want to spoil it for people who haven’t read it) I Instantly connected with the book again and remember what happened. The whole way through the book I found it so easy to read and keep up with. Towards the ...more

4.5! The 3rd book in the Jonny Roberts series of adventures. I say adventures because Jonnys life is far from boring! We finally get to meet his father (and learn why he was absent for a while) who wishes to reconnect with Jonny. Jonny takes the opportunity with his father in hopes to get away from the slump he's fallen into as a result of all he lost not long ago. He soon realizes somethings not quite right about his fathers new lady. In his attempts to figure her out, he reaches out to Aaron a ...more

Struggling after the traumas at the burned house, Jonny faces new challenges in this entertaining 3rd book in the series. We get an in-depth look into the dilemmas he faces as he tries to comes to terms with the death of his friend, and deal with the impact its had on him and his other relationships. The plot builds nicely, taking the reader to and through some genuinely scary moments while introducing us to some new characters.
I enjoyed discovering new layers to Jonny's personality as he matur

As a fan of the Jonny Roberts series I was very anxious to see what happened to Jonny after the devastating events in The Burned House. The Witch Hunt picks up about a month after the last book and we find Jonny is broken mentally and physically and swearing to never use his gifts again. He breaks his vow after visiting his estranged father and learning his future stepmother is possessed at night by the spirit of a woman burned at a stake. The novel and the character Jonny really comes alive whe ...more

Wow... just WOW!!! I really enjoyed this addition to the Jonny Roberts series they really do just keep getting better and better. But the cliffhangers just become deadlier lol I just want to know what happens!!
I had so many feelings during this one as well! I was sad and mad and just stressed out for Jonny!
I could not put it down I was thinking about it when I couldn’t read it. It was just really good and I am thankful for getting to read this advanced copy!

The third instalment in the Jonny Roberts series was definitely my favourite so far. We pick up where we left off in the last book and dive straight into a new and exciting story. This was so fast paced and so great that I read it in one sitting. The stakes felt even higher this time and kept me guessing even more.

I can’t see what’s next for Jonny! Thank you to the author Alexander Lound for sending me an advanced copy.

Two months after the tragic events that happened in the Burned House, we find Jonny grieving, spending his time only with his mother. His days as a medium are over. Until his father calls after 18 months to make amends.

I love the slow beginning of the book. It really made it possible for me to imagine Jonny, his grief and the whole atmosphere. Because of that, I like the moment when the things get faster even more. A phone call from Jonny's dad flips his world around. The conversation with his

This was such a great fast read for me I have loved seeing Jonny grow and develop throughout this series and each book bringing a new adventure with it.
This instalment felt so much more intense with not only Jonny dealing with the death of his friend but learning to navigate a relationship with his fathers new family.
There’s a sprinkling of horror added into the mystery that I really enjoyed. Once you start this book you won’t be able to put it down.
