Witchopper is a unique book: part Pagan horror, part ghost-story, and also a literary meditation on the sins of fatherhood. It tells the story of Rob and his father Richard, who have moved to Southwell to start a new life after Richard's indiscretions in their previous home, in London. However, one of Richard's plans to spend more father-son time with Rob quickly backfires when both experience a supernatural event. Witchopper is full of expertly drawn characters that leap off the page: including Rob's newfound friend, the fantasy-loving maverick, Jason, the digital agent of chaos, Ally, and the old lady, Millicent, who is tragically losing her memory, but hasn't forgotten the old lore. The story alternates between two timelines toward an unexpected climax that shows there is more than one way to read this story, and only by seeing the issue from both sides, can we finally heal the old wounds. Dan Soule is an author to watch!
