Who doesn't love a book that involves a girl trapped in an attic, a kidnapping, a hot kidnapper, and fire?
A fun paranormal novel that takes place in gothic London, I found this to be an enjoyable introduction to a new series. The pacing of the story was good, keeping me from sleeping in my desire to finish the book. I do agree with several of the reviews that talk about the amount of questions left unanswered at the end of the book, but what can you expect when a series number is included on the cover?
I enjoyed Hannah's spunk and the lack of insta-love. Jack was appropriately mysterious and heroic with a tragic and rough history, a fitting love interest for a girl lying about her identity.
While all the action in the book was quickly resolved, I did think that this was a fun gothic beach read and a promising beginning to the Freak House series. It should be interesting to see where the series goes from here. 

My Recommendation
This YA paranormal romance is safe for all ages and would make a fun teen summer read. I give it 4/5 - I really liked it.

Waste of time

This story is written so the reader will buy the next two in the series. Each section only asks more questions, and with everyone being lied to by everyone else, the truth is often not found at all.

This story is written so the reader will buy the next two in the series. Each section only asks more questions, and with everyone being lied to by everyone else, the truth is often not found at all.

The book ends abruptly with more questions. I'm deleting it from my library. The only good thing is it was free.

    4.5 Stars I really enjoyed how this book was setup and I loved

    4.5 Stars

    I really enjoyed how this book was setup and I loved the plot of this book. The author did a wonderful job making this book unique and interesting. Everything about this book screamed adventure and mystery and I loved every second of it. I do wish that some parts were a little more drawn out but overall this book was a success.

    Hannah was such a unique character because of her illness. I loved how the author was able to make this illness into a mystery and really bring it to life. I loved her perspective and her character in general. She interacted with other characters in this unique way that I quickly grew to like about her. I loved many of the characteristics about her that were expressed throughout the book. She was a character that many readers will end up rooting for and wishing well.

    Jack was an mysterious character with a hidden past. He repeatedly told lies and doesn’t tell the whole truth to the very end. I loved how he interacted with other characters, he had a certain way about him that made me want to like him. Yet Jack wasn’t the only character not being totally honest and I loved how each character’s secrets were slowly revealed.

    Overall this book was a really good read and I will be reading some of this author’s other books. 

    **** I received this eARC from NetGalley.****
