Today I am inviting my daughter Daisy to my blog to help kick off the blog tour and share her review for The Curse of Ragman’s Hollow.
Daisy was really excited to read this book after I shared the blurb with her and dove straight in once the book arrived.
Daisy’s Review Age 11
Ragman’s cove was a really good book and draws you in so you want to keep reading.
It has really good descriptions and is an amazing supernatural book. My favourite character was Sam, he may have been considered crazy but I loved his fun character.
I loved the adventures and how super exciting it was throughout the story and would recommend this book to other children who enjoy fantasy and magic with some adventure. I would love to read more books by this author.
Just a walk in the countryside. What could possibly go wrong
Sam Jones’s grandmother is training him to be one of the Cunning Folk, like her, and exams are looming.
But Sam’s mother has holiday plans and drags him off to a remote cottage in the middle of nowhere for some country air. No mobile phone, nettle soup and long walks are the rule. One such walk takes them to Ragman’s Hollow, a place the locals avoid with good reason.
It’s a place where people and animals go missing, never to be found.
That’s just superstitious nonsense, according to Sam’s mother. But there is no smoke without fire and Sam soon finds himself up against an old, very spiteful, and very tricky enemy.
He’s going to need every ounce of his cunning to stop the Ragman. But can he do it alone?

About the Author
Rhys A Jones was born in 1955 and grew up in a mining village in South Wales with his nose in a book and his head in the clouds. He managed to subdue his imagination long enough to carve out a career in medicine, writing whenever the chance arose.
The Merryweathers mysteries feature a boy and his more-than-meets-the-eye Granny Merryweather. The Curse of Wihtlea Barrows (previously the Dreables) and The Curse of Borage Doone have just been released as paperbacks with new covers and a new publisher (Wyrmwood). The third in the series entitled The Curse of Ragman’s Hollow is now available at last
Rhys is currently writing The Artefact Quintet featuring eleven-year-old Oz Chambers whose family inherits a ‘haunted’ house. His mother wants to leave, but Oz wants to unlock the house’s mysteries and uncovers a secret that will change his life forever.
Rhys also writes for adults as DC Farmer and Dylan Young
He has three grownup children who have emerged remarkably unscathed into adulthood. When not writing, he practices medicine and lives in darkest West Wales with his understanding (very) wife and dog.
Oh, and the Rhys is pronounced Reece–as in the actor Rhys Ifans of Mr Lovegood (Harry Potter) and The Lizard (The Amazing Spiderman) fame. Or perhaps it’s easier if you just think of Reece Witherspoon, though she is a lady.
