Review this Book

The Sorceress and the Postgraduate


When an Oxford University student decides to steal an intriguing object from the Pitt Rivers Museum to further his studies, he gets more than he bargained for.

It’s 1497 and Albrecht Durer produces the four witches engraving. But there were really five women, not four, and they were sorceresses. All five were condemned to death, but it was decided that the youngest English girl, Constance, should be saved and the four sorceresses cast a spell to suspend her in time.

What ensues is a captivating story as the student with the help of his new assistant embark on an adventure of magic and mystery, in search for secrets locked in the history of time.

'A lot of fun to read. For ages 12-99.'

I really enjoyed this book. It was the perfect blend of history and present. It didn't get overwhelming with facts and kept you wondering what will happen next. This book it far from predictable but in a Very good way. I highly recommend this book!

With literary notes, author Clive Heritage-Tilley delivers an inviting fantasy story that flies by as you read it. I greatly enjoyed this clever and easy-to-follow book.

The overall premise for this book is good -- a sorceress is locked in a bottle, and for various reasons, the bottle is not opened until a few hundred years later in our present day society. The sorceress is unlocked by a graduate student.

There is romance because the sorceress and the graduate student are relatively close in age. There is some adventure.

The book is well written, but some portions of the book require a leap of the imagination. In addition, some of the reasons behind actions are not explained early on and the reasons are slowly explained as you read on.

This is escapist fiction. If you can put the logical part of your mind on hold, you will enjoy this book. Despite this, the book is written in such a way that I wanted to know what happened and I wanted to read on.

It took me a while to start reading this book as I wasn't wholly keen on the first chapter, however, once I got past that it was a really good book, very strange but magical nonetheless!
