YA-style submitted by nemiller on July 17, 2021, 6:44pm I loved the plot, the pacing, the world-building, the characters, almost everything about this book. But the writing style just never clicked for me. Still, I liked the book enough to keep going until the end.

It's categorized as adult, but the protagonist straddles that line at 18 or 19, so it might be enjoyed more by the YA set.

Wanted More submitted by bjkoch on July 15, 2022, 6:01pm After reading Mexican Gothic (author's other book), i expected more from this book

Love this author’s fresh take submitted by jessikajessika on August 8, 2022, 9:10am I also came to this book after reading Mexican Gothic (which you should also read). I love the cultural connections Moreno-Garcia is able to weave seamlessly into her work in a way that feels both authentic and significant. This story is no exception to that. If you enjoy quick fiction that has some magical qualities, you’ll enjoy this.
