STAR RATINGS GUIDE
Good Story Not Supported By Performance.
💛 A fantastic (and fantastical) supernatural tale fuelled by betrayal, deceit and regret.
💚 McMahon is so good at making me invest in characters. That, coupled with twists and turns, makes for a phenomenal read.
💜 I have one quibble. I don’t like Olive. I know I should forgive her because she’s young and has been through so much, but I cannot.
🧡 Usually I try to offer similar stories or styles, but this time, I’m warning against comparison. If you’re like me or the majority of other readers who’ve reviewed this book, this is the second McMahon book you’ve read. My advice? Don’t go into this expecting The Winter People. No, it’s not quite as brilliant, but it is very very good. A bit Salem Witch Trials, a bit Sleepy Hollow.
