Written by Sunyi Dean, I found this book wonderfully written, enchanting, a heady mix of literature, fantasy, and horror: catching my attention quickly and cleverly with literary deceits. Barely into the book I was happily ensorcelled. As the book goes on it becomes a straightforward thriller albeit it with unusual characters. For me this lessened a wonderful novel though it remained enjoyable, difficult, and less than it had been but still was an enjoyable read to the end. I would highly recommend this book for fans of fantasy, horror, and literary romance. An excellent novel all round.
