Received copy from author for review

14 year old, Merryn Stearne and her family move to a new home in the idyllic Suffolk countryside. However their new home turns out to be anything but idyllic. Their new house is an old thatched cottage and beside it is The Assembly Room, an old building that has a history. From the moment Merryn set eyes on The Assembly Room she has a bad feeling about it. Merryn though moving to the country side was a nightmare, little does she know the nightmare has only started!

I really enjoyed The Assembly Room. The story kept me hooked from the first chapter. When Merryn starts having the dreams of the Witch Trials from 1645 in Suffolk it is so detailed and descriptive I could imagine everything that was happening as if I am there with Merryn experiencing the dreams. The dreams where very horrific and the way the so called "withces" where treated was terrible and you can feel their pain coming of the pages.

Merryn was a great character. She is a strong protagonist that takes us along on her journey as easily as if we are Merryn ourselves. I have to admit when reading about the going on's and discoveries at The Assembly Room I was a little scared at times, that is what I get for reading late in the night but I just needed to keep reading to see what happened next.

On a lighter note there is a romance with Merryn and Jamie, her next door neighbour. It was a good storyline to have going on with the heaviness of the situation of the main storyline.

Overall I really enjoyed The Assembly Room. It was a quick read that kept me gripped with a great storyline and characters!
