Title: A magic tale about the power of imagination
Content: I thought this was a great read. It's a fast moving tale of monsters and magic but most of all the power of the imagination to conquer obstacles. There's also lots about putting on a play, making friends and telling stories. The heroine, Kallie, has dyslexia but, like every person I've ever met with dyslexia, it's not what defines her - what's more important is her ability as a storyteller and friend. I recommend the book to everyone over 8.

Content: This is for children 10-12 years. Loved the characters and the setting. It is good to have a sorry that draws young people in… but is also scary and surprising

Title: Super horror aspects to this thrilling mystery adventure
Content: The Wildstorm Curse is a gripping, fast-paced story with many elements that will appeal to horror fans, myself included, as well as a heart-felt story of friendship and the power of storytelling. Highlights for me included this theme of story-telling and the power of words. The story concerns the poison of lies as well as touches on the liberating power of truth. The strength of friendship and perseverance in the face of evil also features strongly in the story, and I liked the parallels between the past and the present. I really liked Kallie. She arrives in the camp as a fish out of water (one of two new kids) in the dead of night, encountering the grim theatre director, before being led to a darkened tent and given only a small torch – it’s very atmospheric! Kallie is at the camp only because she won a play writing competition. She’s also dyslexic, and her struggles and means of coping are authentically depicted. I was glad she made friends with Emilia (their banter lightened the darker side of the story). I loved the mystery of the past and the antics Kallie and Emilia get up to in their investigations, but I suspect even without her friends’ support, Kallie would have kept going in her battle against evil. I loved the setting of a theatre camp, inspired by the author’s own teenage experience. This one has a purpose-built 400-year old theatre, in which a play has never been performed, apparently due to the ancient curse. I loved how the local villagers milked the story of the curse with their Ellsabet-the-witch-themed tea-towels and other knick-knacks, before being turned into an angry mob (like that of four centuries earlier!). The horror elements: creepy woods, an evil and vengeful entity (demon??) lurking there, turning people into empty shells to do its will, an enemy hidden amongst them, tattoos that change with phases of the moon as the hour of reckoning comes… I loved all these plot elements but they are dark, although appropriately handled for the age group generally, but perhaps not for every reader. Overall this is an exciting read, with lots of action and tension, and a satisfying story, some great characters and a strong plot, so check it out!

Title: A magical tale about the power of stories and storytelling.
Content: I really enjoyed The Wildstorm Curse. It is exciting and mysterious with some really important themes. It's about the theatre and the power of stories. Now, I'm a book blogger, I know stories are powerful but still, it's great to see a book like this really get into what makes them so powerful, what it is that gives stories their magic. Some of it is positive, but not all of it, because that power, that magic, can be used for wickedness just as easily as for good, maybe more easily. People are, generally, more inclined to believe a lie than the truth after all. Stories have magic, and in The Wildstorm Curse, that magic comes to life with shocking and thrilling effect. This book is exciting, dramatic and tense! As the curse takes over more people it feels like the odds are against Kallie and her friends. It's mysterious too, as the true identity of their foe lies hidden for much of the book. There are ancient mysteries and secrets to uncover and lots of pieces that fall into place beautifully for the finale. I loved the mix of the theatre and the ancient witch, two things that work so well together but in a combination I've not seen before. It was very effective and really set a wonderful scene for the storytelling. There are some really important elements in the book too. Kallie comes into the theatre camp as an outsider, into a group of people that know each other from the year before, and feeling like she's the odd one out. I think that's a position most of us have found ourselves in, and it was easy to appreciate how hard it was for her, how much she resented it and felt resented or alienated in turn. Those feelings are again tied very cleverly into the curse, but even without that they feel real and important. Then there's the dyslexia, and that is handled so incredibly well. Kallie is dyslexic, and she is a playwright. The Wildstorm Curse makes it very clear how she can be both of these things, without ignoring the struggles she goes through, the problems she faces and how she tries to deal with it. It's honest, up-front but ultimately very optimistic and empowering. I loved it!
