I loved this book until the last chapter.

The story is lively and well-written, even a very obvious plot-twist didn't spoil it.

However, I felt the author just gave up at the end. If the book had been three more chapters and a proper epilouge, it would have gotten 4.5 stars from me instead of 3.

As is, I went "This is great, this is marvelous, wait....what?"

A nice, quick read. I really liked the references to Edgar Allan Poe and Robert Louis Stevenson. The main character, Annabel, is sweet and kind, though not very developed. The story was interesting and the plot twists kept me interested throughout.

Having read her Sleepy Hollow trilogy, I was looking forward to reading more from this writer. This author is very creative, using classic literary works and/or historical figures to tell an original fictional tale. This novel is a clear example of her ingenuity. Scary and intriguing, it is a fun edge of your seat read. I enjoyed it very much. I'm looking forward to the next book.
