Urban legends are so creepy and yet so cool. In Debra Castaneda’s The Root Witch, TV producer Sandra Molina knows that the Trembling Giant aspen forest is spooky to say the least, but when a story presents itself just in time for Halloween, she sends out a crew to investigate reports of shadows. Her crew goes missing, and she’s afraid that the Root Witch legends are all too real.
I really enjoyed the format of the story – it was told through faxes, diary entries, and academic journal excerpts. It really lent to a fascinating telling of the story, but also provided for a bit of an unreliable narrator.
If you enjoy urban legends or The Blair Witch Project, I think you’ll enjoy The Root Witch.
I received a copy of this book for free and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
