Thank you so much to Little Brown Books for Young Readers for the free copy of this book for my review!
This book is now one of my top favorite books of all time. It had the perfect amount of spooky, romance, and keep you on the edge of your seat creepy. I have never read a book like this before and I absolutely loved it.
I would definitely classify this book as a dark fantasy with the rotting corpses and the dead coming back to life but it also had a lot of humor thrown in that surprised me. The writing was amazing and kept me entranced the entire time I was reading, it was so detailed and gripping. The world that Emily Lloyd-Jones created was richly-imagined but so simple at the same time, you could picture everything and that’s one thing I loved so much about this.
I loved the characters of Ryn and Ellis, especially how Ellis was dealing with chronic pain throughout the book which is something I don’t normally find in fantasy books. Their relationship was so fun to read about and the ending honestly left me gasping and dreading for the outcome.
Overall an excellent book that I highly, highly suggest reading. This was unlike any other fantasy book I’ve read and I doubt anything will ever compare to it.
