Young Australian cellist Maisie Fielding is bored with her career and her overpowering, manipulative musical family. Faking a wrist injury, she takes time off to return to England, her mother's home country, to search for her own roots and to find out more about her grandmother, a 'white witch' who settled in a bleak village on the North Yorkshire coast. Maisie's mother is set against her going and refuses to tell her daughter anything about the woman, other than that, even dead, she is dangerous. On her arrival in Solgreve, she receives a hostile welcome from her new neighbours and begins to find clues to her grandmother's mysterious death. Amongst the clutter in her grandmother's house is a diary written by a young French woman who eloped with a penniless English poet and settled in the village. Through this diary, Maisie discovers the existence of an unnatural presence which still preys on the lives of the people of the village, past and present.… (més)

A quick, enjoyable read in time for Hallowe'en. I wasn't ever particularly scared, mind you, but nevertheless I was caught up in the narrative, and it ticked all the usual spooky boxes in a competent, workmanlike manner. (I do feel a little dissatisfied, however, because it wasn't anywhere near as good as her 'The Autumn Castle', and I must have been expecting something at that level.) ( )

The Resurrectionists contains some atmospheric writing, but is let down by a plot that was both a little predictable, and very familiar feeling (without actually bringing any other specific work to mind).

It won the Aurealis Award for best horror novel in its year (the author's second award), so clearly my opinion is in the minority.

A better Kim Wilkins book (for those that like the genre) is Grimoire ( )
