The Crowfield Curse by Pat Walsh
In 1347 at the remote Crowfield Abbey in England, young orphaned William is a servant for the resident monks. While in the woods, William hears a cry for help and frees a strange creature that calls himself a “Hob” from a hunter’s trap. William takes the hobgoblin back to the monastery to nurse him back to health. But the hob isn’t the only visitor the monastery has. A wealthy and mysterious man has come along with his servant in search of a secret that the abbey holds. And William soon finds himself involved in a battle between good and evil in a world of magic that he didn’t know existed.
William is humble and obedient with a good heart. Walsh has created an imaginative world of fey and magic in a late medieval setting. The time period is already dark and ominous, adding to the mystery and suspense of the magical beings within the forest. Suspenseful and highly engaging, The Crowfield Curse is a magical tale of good versus evil. Building to an exciting conclusion, fantasy fans will be eager for the next in the series.
