Witches of Lychford by Paul Cornell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The last book I read in 2016 may end up being one of the best I read. Cornell's fantasy novella - I would say urban fantasy, but the setting is more suburban than urban - is one of those books that sends little jolts of pleasure into your brain continually as you read it. You really won't be able to put it down. Cornell's plot is unique and intriguing, gripping, and also a tiny bit scary (I'm easily scared). His characters are masterfully written into life as well. Cornell did all of this in a novella, 144 pages to make these people and this story come to life. He succeeds brilliantly. I loved this book; fans of Neil Gaiman (of which I am one) should love it as well.
