Orla and the Serpent's Curse

By C. J. Haslam

A spooky adventure set in Cornwall; Famous Five with a twist.

A long-dead Cornish witch to thwart and a curse to stop it's just another family holiday. Orla thought she was in for a relaxing break, but when she finds a mysterious glowing necklace in the woods, it turns out there is a slight possibility she may have uncovered a witch's ancient curse. After meeting a coven of suspicious old ladies, it becomes clear that Orla's arrival in Cornwall is no longer a coincidence. The curse is poisoning the land and destroying everything it touches, and Orla is the one person who can stop it. But she’ll need help from the only other member of the family with good instincts – Dave the dog.

Reviews

'“It was a real treat to get lost in this sprawling adventure full of magic, pirates, witches and a most heroic Jack Russell. Orla and the Serpent’s Curse is packed full of adventure, mystery, humour and thrills… All shot through with lots of wonderful witchy magic - this is rich storytelling sure to appeal to fans of Catherine Doyle’s magical Storm Keepers series or Robin Stevens’ brilliant mysteries.”' James Nicol

'“A rollicking adventure of witches and pellers and pirates and betrayal all set in a vividly painted Cornwall rich with language and landscape. Brilliant to see an historical novel with a contemporary setting, that incorporates folklore, history, mystery, adventure and family – and with the biggest hearted dog ever – the utterly selfless – Dave.”' Fleur Hitchcock
