It almost reminded me of a movie I watched as a Teenager. I thought I creepy house, feelings of dread and a group of teenagers? Yes, please! That was until I read it.
Ok so don’t get me wrong this book wasn’t bad…BUT….it takes quite a few pages to get to the really good parts, about 60% in. I understand what she was trying to do but I think instead of focusing on how creepy the house was, the characters needed more of something. There is a part in the book that explains that Seda has an inner voice. I felt that wasn’t explained enough and didn’t really go anyplace. I will tell you the Twist at the end totally had me like, WHAT!?!?! but I also felt it needed a lot more build to get to that end. It was shocking and I still can’t stop thinking about it. I actually read it like 3 times. I just felt it was really missing something.
I am adding a spoiler at the end of this post. So if you read the book feel free to read the spoiler, I am only adding it because I need to explain what annoyed me about this book. It has so much potential and just when it was getting good it was over. I felt like 30% of the book could have been the build of house and character but I wanted more of Seda and the teens that come to the house. Maybe even adding more to the creepy factor of the house and the rooms being so odd.
Overall I liked it, it wasn’t the best book ever but I enjoyed it. I really thought the end was like WOW and I wasn’t really expecting what happened. I do recommend even just to read the end. 🙂
Here is a sort of spoiler….View Spoiler »Sawyer was Seda’s infused Twin. When she was born her twin was absorbed into her. So now she hears his voice in her head. However the author didn’t expand on it. He was sort of pushed very far into the background and only pops back up at the end. I felt like with how it ended and the big reveal it needed more of him. He should have been a major factor throughout the book. « Hide Spoiler
