Review of The Witchery Way
Witchery Way by Robert Ferrier

(Reviewed by Loralee Petersen)

The summer before Josh’s senior year is filled with old trains, drug producers, murder, mystery and a hint of romance. Josh and his father Ed have moved back to Oklahoma to start fresh after the death of Josh’s mother. Ed has bought a local train company and is determined to make it work. Josh loves the company because he feels it links him to his grandfather who was a railroad man. Josh is also happy about meeting Amy that summer. Their friendship quickly blossoms into love.

But someone doesn’t want the railroad to succeed. The first time Josh is at the controls of a train he runs over a body on the tracks. The man was dead before the train hit him, but how did he die? The sheriff says he was an alcoholic on a binge, but Josh and Amy sneak into the coroner’s office and find out otherwise. From there events quickly escalate until the story reaches its dramatic climax.

The setting is brought to life by the author’s vivid descriptions of local culture and of the trains’ workings.

The characters in Witchery Way are likable and well drawn. The lead characters as well as the supporting characters are strong and original. The relationships between the characters are a vital part of the story.

But the emphasis in the story is on the action rather than on character development. The plot rolls along smoothly as smoothly as a roller coaster, taking the reader on just as many dips and turns until you finally come, breathless, to a stop. Witchery Way is further proof to the fact that there is no truth in the myth that e-books are of inferior quality.

Witchery Way is marketed as a young adult book. The Young Adult category seems to keep expanding its age limit so that now children as young as twelve may be considered young adult readers. I would caution parents to read this book before offering it to younger teens. The violence is graphic and there is one teen sex scene. Fortunately, parents should find this book as interesting as teens, so reading it together and discussing any sensitive subjects should not be a chore.
