I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
Have you ever found a book that should have been divided into a trilogy instead of having three timelines? Well, this is such a book. If you enjoy stories involving witches, ghosts, conjuring, and hauntings, demons and spookerama… then you’ll enjoy this.
I was enticed by the premise, which sounded good. For most parts, the book fell right into the premise. It will also take the reader on a strange journey through time, often confusing POVs will cause a frown or two (dozen), and the creep factor will not let you down. I would recommend that you read as much as you can in one sitting and not spread it out too much. You’ll get lost.
I should also add that there are great modern day references to social media and journaling, perfectly placed for all YA lovers.
I’ve heard that the audio is really good to listen to but don’t do anything while listening to lose focus or the story will lose you. It’s deep and intricate and involved.
Like I said, this book would have benefited as a Trilogy and not be crammed with so much information, far too many POV jumps, and a criss-cross over time.
