And for those of you who haven’t already bought it yet, Mr Jarvis’ latest book, The Devil’s Paintbox, just came out. This is the second in his Witching Legacy series, set in modern-day Whitby.

I’m halfway through and enjoying it. Aufwader finished in January and is still quivering in a corner somewhere. (Her sentiments to me were ‘that hell book absolutely traumatised me’, which left me very curious as to what fiendish terrors lay in wait!)

Did I mention it’s beautifully illustrated as well? Get right on to it, people!
