Oh my goodness, this book was amazing. I was captivated from start to finish. I wish I could give more than 5 stars because it deserves more. Jessica Aiken Hall is a literary wizard.
I simply cannot spoil this book because it was so good and was so fun to try to figure the mystery out, but I will make a few comments on it!
The characters were just amazing. They had so much depth and persona to them that I loved or hated them depending who they were! Her scene details were immaculate and gave me literal goosebumps. Reading it felt so realistic, it was like I was there, spooky! Without giving too much away, the way she weaved this intricate and amazing plot is simply astounding. It had me invested in this mystery and reading every and any opportunity I could. Just when I thought I had things figured out, BAM, another bombshell was dropped; but it all fit in perfectly. It wrapped up so nicely with a perfect and just conclusion.
10/10 will be stalking this author to fangirl over her work.
