“The Witch’s Boy,” by Michael Gruber, is for you if you like a nice dose of fantasy and fairytale that dips into darkness while exploring very human relationship and psychological issues. Much of the protagonist’s life takes place while he is a child, but this is not a story for children, though it will appeal to young adults, as well as adults, who appreciate a non-formulaic approach to a story of magic and growing up. The novel is pleasantly unique and intriguing, though the reader has to work a bit to extract the insight that Gruber provides through telling Lump’s tale.
