A Haunt Huntress battles all sort of ghosts and monsters using her wits, potions, the tools of the trade and a bit of magic. Evangeline Clement’s thirteenth birthday is fast approaching. That’s when a Haunt huntress or Swamp Witch finds her animal familiar and proves she has heart in order to awaken her magical powers. Evangeline is getting a bit worried though because time is running out and she has yet to acquire her familiar. This middle grade novel has so much to offer a young reader. A brave heroine with a big heart, she has to learn to trust her gut and believe in herself while battling a sinister foe. A gripping plot that will have tweens totally engrossed. Evangeline’s wise Gran’s adages were wonderful. I especially liked this one, “Fear is a steel trap. It keeps you from moving forward. It binds up your courage, as well as your smarts.” The illustrations throughout the story are bold and striking. There is also a Glossary at the end of the book of monsters and other otherworldly critters for those readers wanting to know more about shadow crouchers or rougarous. A fun, fast paced spine-tingling read with a feisty heroine that will delight any tween.
