review 1: This book sounded interesting with all the history surrounding witches. I liked the mystery of the mansion and it felt like a pretty good paranormal story. But what put me off were the main characters. Julie and Nick have off putting qualities. Julie is the spoiled, selfish, rich kid who thinks she is better than anyone, while justifying that everything she has in life has been earned. Hard to believe that when her parents gave her, her business, house, and money. She also tries to make herself feel better of the fact that she's a good person because she donates things to the less fortunate. Nick on the other hand is a complete emotional mess. One minute he's crying and another minute he's angry; I couldn't keep up with his mood swings and how weak he was throughou... moret the book. By the end of the book I honestly didn't care what happened to any of them. The only interesting character in this book was Tamara Trewin, the last living descendent of the Lansin Island Witches and she only had a small part.
review 2: 'A Death Displaced' is the first in a series which combines mystery with a ghost story. Nick saves stranger Juliet after he has a vision of her dying. This starts off a chain of events that unravel details of Nick's mother's disappearance but as the story goes on more questions are raised than answered.I found this book really interesting. The premise was intriguing and it seemed to be well plotted with characters that were easy enough to care about. There were times when the writing didn't flow so well but in general I was captivated enough to ignore those moments.I thought the mix of mystery and paranormal worked well and the story was different enough to keep me turning pages long after I meant to put the book down. I will likely read the second one soon, particularly since the ending was a bit of a cliff-hanger. Overall an enjoyable read with some very interesting ideas and a plot with many intertwining threads. I look forward to the next part. Recommended for fans of mystery and paranormal reads. less

Really far fetched and mundane. Catchy title, I expected more from this book.
Pretty good young adult book. Looking forward to seeing what comes next.
One very long word. Borrrrrrrring.
Couldn't really get into it.
It ended rather abruptly.
