Jeremy and the Witches' Medallion: The Witch Hunt is a work of fiction in the fantasy, historical, and adventure sub-genres, and was penned by author Randy Gauthier. The work is intended for the general reading audience, and is accessible to many different types of readers, containing no graphic or extreme content. Our protagonist is the titular Jeremy, a teenager from contemporary times who finds himself transported to the seventeenth century with a rare opportunity to see life from another perspective. As Jeremy befriends a series of animals and finds that he can communicate with them, the plot thickens and his adventures take him across the different countries that we now know to be the United Kingdom.
Author Randy Gauthier has crafted a historically detailed, interesting, and immersive work of fiction with plenty of facts, fantasy, and adventure to offer readers. As an adult reader, I initially found it a little jarring to go between some quite heavy historical content and complex lexis into what is essentially a more youthful and action-packed idea of a young man talking to animals, but the more the story went on, the better these ideas gelled together and came to a very satisfactory conclusion. The dialogue was also a very effective feature of the work, serving to display the unique traits of our protagonist, his charms and insecurities, whilst moving the plot forward in a natural way that felt historically resonant. Overall, I would highly recommend Jeremy and the Witches' Medallion: The Witch Hunt to readers of inventive combinations of history and fantasy concepts, engaging dialogue, and for fans of the Stuart period everywhere.
