This is the story of a girl who didn’t want to live...

Carrie Anne is desperately unhappy. Tangled in a web of abuse, she seeks solace in the cemetery that backs onto her garden. But something creeps between the gravestones. Carrie Anne is not alone

...and a boy who cannot die.

The cemetery is home to a boy. He has guarded these forgotten bones since meeting a gruesome end two hundred years ago. Neither dead nor alive, he has been watching for a long time. And now, he finally has the visitor he’s been waiting for...

My Review:

This was not what I was expecting. I thought I was about to read a story about a boy and a girl helping each other, work through some issues and becoming strong loving friends. It was in a way but a little darker and a lot more scary. The story starts with the Boys life and everything he is going through, then it goes to the Girl, Carrie Ann, and the awful life she has. Both characters broke my heart, I cared about them and the story was scary, emotional and fascinating.

I haven’t read a book like this before it was scary and terrifying but emotional and heartbreaking the characters tug at your heart and they don’t have it easy but you are happy they have each other. The ending was amazing and I hope there will be another. The Author Sebastian Gregory  is very new to me but one that I plan to read again. I liked his writing style and he can really tell an amazingly scare but heart felt story. This story touches on some sensitive subjects and things that happen in the book are unexpected and horrific and should be read with caution.

Recommend: This book is just wow and needs to be read by many.


Thank you so much for stopping by to check out my review

Hope you have a great day and Happy Reading!

    • Wait till you read the review I did for the other book he wrote, that one was WOW too. His grammar is a little off but I love his stories

  1. This one sounds a bit too scary and dark for my tastes, although it sounds interesting how the author can write a scary and heartfelt story. I just finished a book that turned out to be much heavier and darker then expected, I am really in the mood for something lighter.
    I have to say I like the cover, it’s looks original and cleverly done with the headstone as background and the scene with the boy inside it.

    • It wasn’t what I was expecting at all and I really enjoyed it even though I found it a bit disturbing at times. I am hoping he does another one since the end may have hinted to a second book

    • it’s really different but really good. I just picked up another one from him a Christmas Horror Story. I find in to be an interesting writer.
