I have been thinking of this story all day. I keep getting happy thinking I am going to go home and read more of it but then I remember that I have to wait! I love the world that author Patti Roberts has created with Alexandria. I love how she so easily accepts who she is and what her new fate is. I love magic. I am so jealous of Alexandria! I want to find out I descend from a long line of witches. This story has NO AGE LIMIT! As long as you have an imagination, this story will whisk you up and sweep you off into a magical world where you have no clue who or WHAT is lurking around the corner!!!!

As a HUGE lover of Patti Robert's work I was thrilled when she announced she was releasing her "TV series" length books - The Witchwood Estate Series. As anybody who regularly reads my reviews knows, I am a lover of all things paranormal; vampires, shifters, angels, you name it' I've probably read it. But I must admit I haven't read a lot paranormal containing witches, so was really quite excited when Patti said this was the basis of her new series. Now before you start thinking OK a story about witches; this is no 'Charmed' or 'Merlin'. The first book in the series; Going Home, introduces us to our heroine Alexandria, as she is getting ready to go home to Witchwood Estate to claim her inheritance. We meet Olly and Martha Barnaby her loving but rather curious guardians, and then go with Alexandria on the first leg of her journey home. What makes Patti's work so easy to read is that her stories have an emotion, spirit, and energy that draws you into the story and you are propelled along with them. With each story only the length of a standard TV mini-series or show, it is quite easy to read in one sitting, and then, like any other favourite TV show, you have to wait with baited breath till the next exciting episode.

Awesome read for a short story. It has all the elements of a good novel, lacking nothing. The characters are interesting and realistic. Suspense and pace are well balanced. For an added bonus, real spells are contained in the context of the book. I enjoyed this book and I can’t wait to read the rest of the series. Good Buy! Great Read!

 Childhoods End .... The Journey Begins This series must be read in order. This is the first book. This story has loads of flashbacks to help you understand how Alexandria grew up and why she must leave her new home behind and go back to her ancestral estate. The writing is evocative and imaginative and though set in small towns it is on par with many urban fantasy series as well as urban paranormal series. Even though this is a novelette or short story series I truly enjoyed it! The world contained within this short book series is amazing and visceral. I would recommend it to anyone who reads modern fantasy or paranormal mystery. You never know what will happen next and before you know it the book is over And you want MORE! I hope you enjoy it as much as I have :) I can't wait to read the next episode Witchwood Estate - Ferntree Falls (book 2 - Episodic series)!!! ***This series is suitable for mature young adult through adult reader
