Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book has a 15 year-old protagonist, but its reach extends far further than that. I loved this tight, paranormal mystery. It was everything I'd expected and a little something more. Moody, isolated English countryside, small town full of secrets and lies, and a thriller of a conspiracy underneath it all, with an array of well-drawn, personable, and unique characters. Mystery fans will not be disappointed by this. YA fans will find much to love in the underlying coming-of-age subtext deftly woven into the book. Thriller fans will enjoy the twists and turns in the plot and the well-timed pacing that keeps you on the edge of your seat (the book is light on gore, for folks who pay attention to that stuff--suitable for older teens). Helen Scott Taylor is an author you can trust to deliver the goods.
