Kurzbeschreibung

Top ten occult and mythology UK best seller.

Izzy Santana and her 13-year-old son Connor move into a Reading Council-provided flat in the sleepy village of Cedham. Locals darkly warn her to stay away from nearby Coombe’s Wood, hinting first at elves, then at multiple murders… which may or may not have taken place in the woods hundreds of years ago. It’s all ludicrously superstitious, and Izzy is so delighted to have found a haven for her son – after being threatened by her sadistic ex-partner George – that she takes little notice.

She meets a neighbour who seems kindly, if a trifle fey, and who takes a great interest in her son. Connor seems instantly comfortable with him. She begins to feel as if she is also falling under his spell. But Connor is bullied at school, and one night she finds herself tracking those bullies in the wood, where she believes they are waiting for him. She doesn’t find them, but something closes in on her – something that sounds like a savage animal. As she runs she realises she may have been set up – or Connor was – to be caught by whatever the animal was. She strengthens the barricades in her flat, no longer puts all the local tales about ‘danger in them woods’ down to superstition, and even begins to wonder about the way she was selected by the Reading Council officer to live in the village in the first place.

Then a slit rabbit turns up on her doorstep, along with a distinctive cigarette butt, and she knows George has found her. Desperately compassionate, her neighbour calls the police, who turn up next day, harumph the ceiling, and take the attitude: You’ve not been attacked, then, Miss? You haven’t actually seen him? Why, if your ex-lover has tracked you down, do you suppose he would he dump a rabbit at your door…? Her own question, more urgent, is: if George can get in the front door of the building, can he get into her flat?

What Izzy needs to do is protect Connor. She has already started to uncover the ancient secrets of the village, and now she works out the perfect way to get rid of George… for good.

Publishers Weekly review 2009
In this suspenseful story, strange characters and unnerving legends punctuate one woman’s desperate attempt to flee from her abusive ex-boyfriend by escaping to the English countryside. With little more than an old Toyota and a pair of suitcases, Izzy and her son Connor head to the tiny village of Cedham, where Connor’s father disappeared years before. Izzy, fearful and mistrustful, soon meets the gently protective neighbors and hears stories of elves, ghosts and the monster stalking the nearby woods. Though warned against visiting the woods, Izzy gives into the pull she feels toward the dark woods with a long terrifying history. Deeply-held Cedham traditions add depth to a familiar set-up and offer the additional mystery of whether these stories could be true—or are they the delusions of a paranoid woman on the run? Nicely done.

HASH(0x8c6312d0) von 5 Sternen An ancient secret in Coombe's Wood 12. April 2010
Von L.C. Evans - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The book starts innocently enough. Fleeing an abusive relationship, Izzy seeks to move from a shelter to a home with her son Connor. But eerie elements are quickly introduced and the reader knows this is no ordinary story. First they find mysterious writing behind the wallpaper in Connor's new room. Then villagers warn them to stay out of nearby Coombe's Wood. Izzy and Connor make friends and Izzy finds work. The telling of the ordinary day to day of their activities makes a good contrast with the creepiness of the environment and the events that soon begin. Izzy learns why she should stay out of the woods, but she's not sure whether to believe the locals. Then George, her ex, finds her and the stalking begins. George is a psychopath and Izzy is in fear for her life. At the end of the story, however, she finds a way to deal with George.

Coombe's Wood is hard to put down once you start reading. Author Lisa Hinsley has skillfully woven the mystery of Izzy's past with the supernatural elements of Coombe's Wood to create a gripping read.

Coombe's Wood - This story weaves a magical and mysterious tale. A mother on the run with her son from a abusive ex boyfriend. They end up in village where many uuanswered questions arise. A strange next door neighbor who talks of elves, murders and a strange beast that hides in the woods behind their home. Loose yourself in their journey and enter the woods if you dare. Find out what happens to the exhusband who stalks them and how many of the questions are answered for Izzy. I enjoyed this book very much but would of liked to hear more about her son finding out who he truly was and how he accepted it. (maybe another book) Diffently a thumbs up for this capitavating, suprising, nail bitting journey. Good Job!

HASH(0x8c5007e0) von 5 Sternen Good self-published novel 11. Mai 2011
Von Gary Ballard - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
If you like supernatural thrillers in the vein of a Stephen King or Dean Koontz, you'll likely enjoy Coombe's Wood. Lisa Hinsley's prose is crisp, her characters are believable and the plot is entertaining. I won't go into a synopsis, as that's covered quite well in the book's product description. Though the book could use a bit more thorough editing, the typos found within are rare enough to not distract from the enjoyment.

The only criticism I have is that the novel's plot is a bit of a switcheroo - while there are very prominent supernatural elements to the story, they aren't so integral to the story that the plot wouldn't work without them. They don't distract, but they aren't absolutely necessary to the story of an abused woman's journey to rid herself of her abuser. The setting is well-envisioned, however, and this novel sets it up for excellent sequel possibilities in the future if the author wishes to utilize them.

I would certainly recommend this book, as it's flaws do not outweigh its successes.

Von D. Lockwood - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I don't usually read Stephen King type books, but from the first page I was captured. I couldn't put it down and was sorry to have it end. Maybe there is a sequel in the works?
