School Library Journal – September 2010 WALSH, Pat. The Crowfield Curse. The Crowfield Demon" is a direct sequel to "The Crowfield Curse", focusing on a young orphan boy who grapples with supernatural occurrences at Crowfield Abbey in 1348.

School Library Journal – September 2010 WALSH, Pat. Scholastic/Chicken House. In the last book William solved the mystery of a buried angel with the help of several fey creatures, but now things take a darker turn as clues accumulate pointing to a malevolent being within the abbey's chapel.

Peter Borowe, Crowfield’s only lay brother, was busy pulling up leeks in the vegetable garden, working them loose from the frozen earth with a hoe and throwing them into a nearby basket. He straightened up and waved when he saw William. His face and hands were red from the cold. He leaned his elbow on the top of the hoe and blew into his cupped fingers to warm them

The Crowfield Curse book. A sequel, The Crowfield Demon, is due out in Spring. I look forward to seeing and hearing Will's learning of the flute, Brother Walter's new life with Brother Snail and the continued magic of the Fey. As The Times of London said: captivating, evocative, charming and exciting. Pat Walsh's atmospheric debut offering is a historical fantasy with a magical twist. Gone are the expected swords and battles, and in their place are mysterious angels and loveable hobs.

There would be snow before nightfall. William was preoccupied as he went about his morning chores. William was preoccupied as he went about his morning chores elped Peter carry turnips from the small shed at the far end of the garden to the kitchen. Time and again, his thoughts turned to what lay ahead, to the walk through the forest to the Hollow. When they got there, how would they find the grave? And what if the monks had buried the angel deep in the earth? No, he told himself, they wouldn’t have.

This book continued where the last book left off, but again left me hanging ,wondering when the author will complete the story.

Good second installment, but a bit more graphic than I had expected. This doesn't, show monks in a very good light. But considering the era it is set in, I'.m not surprised, except it a suggested reading for 7th graders I. A Catholic school.

All in all a good read about the choices we face in life and photos one boy chooses to do the right thing, while facing very large consequences if he fails.

From my daughter (actual purchaser): "I love how this book totally hooks you and you can't put it down because you have to know what happens next!"

We gave it five stars because it is a very good read. It makes you want to keep read and before you know it your at the end.

My son loves the books.

I loved this sequel to "The Crowfield Curse." Walsh is very adept at creating moods and detailing relationships. What I loved best were the relationships between the boy, William, the monk, Brother Snail, the hob, a fay creature of the forest, named Brother Walter, and Shadlock, a fay man (elf-like, but an ancient depiction of elves, older than Tolkien's). Though these characters are all very different, they care for and look out for one another. Beautifully written. Highly recommended for readers who enjoy historical fiction (set in 1348 Britain) with a fantasy twist.

Wonderful story to read with a 10 year-old.

My son, who is eleven, loved this book and the other one in this pair. This author has tapped into his imagination and sent it soaring! I, as a mom, love when that happens.
Back in 2012 I read Pat Walsh's The Crowfield Curse and absolutely loved it. The character, the story, the atmosphere, the details – it was like it had been written just for me. So I was pretty excited at the thought of a sequel ... so excited in fact, that I avoided reading it for years. Knowing there were only two books about William and Crowfield Abbey, I didn't want my enjoyment of the series to end.

But I had to read it at some point, and that it's under my belt I'm a little sad it's all over. "The Crowfield Demon" is a direct sequel to "The Crowfield Curse", focusing on a young orphan boy who grapples with supernatural occurrences at Crowfield Abbey in 1348. In the last book William solved the mystery of a buried angel with the help of several fey creatures, but now things take a darker turn as clues accumulate pointing to a malevolent being within the abbey's chapel. (It shouldn't be too hard to guess considering the answer is in the title of the book).

Frightening things start happening at the Abbey: visions of a crow-headed creature, unaccountable vandalism of murals and statues, and finally the uncovering of a strangely carved bowl. With the help of a little hob and a hunchbacked monk known as Brother Snail, William tries to find a way to contain the demon beneath the abbey, knowing that he's up against an evil so great he may not survive it.

"The Crowfield Demon" isn't quite as good as its predecessor, more of a horror story than a fairy tale this time around, with several characters that fall by the wayside as the story goes on (after such a striking introduction, I thought we'd see a lot more from Robin).

But Walsh's real gift is in melding folklore with Biblical lore, in which angel/demons and fey creatures co-exist uneasily together, each with their own set of laws and traditions. It reminded me of the fantastic The Secret of Kells film, which similarly explores the side-by-side relationship of Christianity and paganism, each with their own light and dark sides.

She's also very good at bringing the 12th century to life, with detailed description on food, clothing, architecture, customs and ideologies. William makes for a likeable and sympathetic protagonist: fearful of the dark forces around him, but brave enough to act in defence of those he cares about.

There's room left for a third instalment in the series, what with mention of dark times to come, a "light" inside William, the likes of the Unseelie King and Dame Alys still on the loose, and the relationship between William and Shadlok, but so far there's no sign of any forthcoming book to continue the story. I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed.
