Jeremy and the Witches’ Medallion: The Witch Hunt

Jeremy and the Witches’ Medallion: The Witch Hunt, by Randy Gauthier, follows the journey of a young lad trying to retrieve a medallion that was passed down as a family heirloom. A magpie steals the medallion from Jeremy which sets him on a thrilling adventure to retrieve it using a feather that can transport him back in time to the 17th century. The feather also gives Jeremy the ability to communicate and understand animals while in the 17th century. With the help of some furry friends Jeremy encounters along the way, this motley crew travels far and wide to retrieve the medallion.

Gauthier begins the novel by introducing the reader to the political and religious views of 17th century England. The first few chapters tell the story of twelve witches who were sentenced to death by King James I of England. The events that occur throughout the 17th century move the plot along and intertwine with Jeremy’s riveting journey which takes place 400 years in the future. Gauthier blends two different centuries with ease and the reader experiences events in history alongside Jeremy.

Gauthier has a writing style that is welcoming to all. There is humor throughout the dialogue that allows the reader to see the friendship budding between various characters. Each character has its own personality and I believe anyone reading will find a sense of enjoyment getting to know them. The friendship between Mr. Sterling and Jeremy was my favorite to follow throughout the story. Jeremy holds a sense of respect for Mr. Sterling and in return, the owl protects him like a father.

At first I felt confused trying to figure out who the main character was and how the story fits together. I would have liked to have been introduced to Jeremy before chapter five, however, after he is introduced you can follow the connection of both centuries easily throughout the rest of the novel.

With enjoyable characters and an interesting plot, readers will enjoy Jeremy and the Witches’ Medallion as a light but fun read. This story will appeal to readers with a sense of humor and enjoyment of history. If you are looking for a casual read with a well-rounded and entertaining story, then you will find plenty to enjoy in Randy Gauthier thrilling adventure novel.
