We thought we'd found our haven, a cottage deep in the heart of the forest. Charming, maybe a little run down, but so peaceful. That was the first part of the Magic. Midge's painting and my music soared to new heights of creativity. That was another part of the Magic. Our love for each other...well, that became the supreme Magic. But the cottage had an alternative side. The Bad Magic.

What happened to us there was horrendous beyond belief. The healings, the crazy sect who wanted our home for themselves, the hideous creatures that crawled from the nether regions, and the bats - oh God, the bats! Even now those terrible things seem impossible to me. Yet they happened.

    " I read this book again & again brilliant "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashleigh | 2/7/2014

    " It's okay so far, you can definately sense the eerie atmosphere already in the cottage "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maria Wolmarans | 2/3/2014

    " A good read as always... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Djrmel | 1/16/2014

    " Loved the house as a character, but the people in the book brought nothing to the story. The horror is good and creepy in some places and over the top silly (and pointless) in other parts of the book. The story is told by one of the main characters looking back after all the events have occurred and the clunky foreshadowing takes the edge off of the entire plot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bobbie Brown | 1/13/2014

    " Loved this book, even though it scared the he'll out of me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Decee Foulkes | 1/8/2014

    " We all have a favourite book that we can read again and again and this is one of mine. I have no idea why I love it so much, but Jame Herbert's story telling is an inspiration to me. The Cottage in the story is my dream home and I love opening the pages and climbing straight back into that world. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 1/8/2014

    " Fun to read - like a friend telling a story, which makes it more believable. Creepy much of the time, but also uplifting at times. You might not like it if you don't at least accept the belief that everything is connected and energy is magic, but it's written from a skeptic's point of view. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruth | 12/26/2013

    " Love this book! It is one of my favourites and my go to book when I need something familiar and comforting to read, even though it does have scary bits in it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charlotte Bird | 12/23/2013

    " a fantastic story; it got me hooked on herbert! it has some truelly nice bits, and some extremely creepy and spine tingling bits. it also lays off on the over the top graphic horror he sometimes over does. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 12/8/2013

    " I absolutely loved this book, what a great read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paganwitch | 11/30/2013

    " Similiar to Once, good stuff. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca tedder | 2/12/2013

    " No where near half as good as the other Herberts I've read recently but would have been good as an introduction to the haunted genre. Ok but not half as fast paced as other tales. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly Sumner | 7/8/2011

    " Good creapy book. Really enjoyed it as there was plenty about Magic one of my favourite topics. I would have prefered a different ending but you can't have everything "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Russ Brown | 1/10/2011

    " A very cleverly written story which immediately engages the reader. The description of the cottage is outstanding and Herberts word play gives the reader a real sense of unfolding suspense. Superb get it read :) "

    " Fantastic book by a great writer. In turns creepy and delightful, it is gripping throughout. A real page-turner which I have read twice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 7/2/2008
