Stay away from the woods…
When Silla and Nori arrive at their aunt’s home, it’s immediately clear that the manor is cursed. The endless creaking of the house at night and the eerie stillness of the woods surrounding them would be enough of a sign, but there are secrets too—questions that Silla can’t ignore: Why does it seem that, ever since they arrived, the trees have been creeping closer? Who is the beautiful boy who’s appeared from the woods? And who is the tall man with no eyes who Nori plays with in the basement at night… a man no one else can see?
Lisa’s Review: I received an ARC of this book at BEA from the publisher.
This book is so adorably freakin’ amazing. There were so many twists and turns throughout it that I didn’t know if I was coming or going. It definitely kept me on my toes.
I don’t want to say much about the story itself because I don’t want to accidentally divulge something that’ll give it all away. There is so many layers and when one is pulled away another appears. When it all came together my heart just broke.
Poor Silla. She experienced so much torment throughout her life. Her story is quite sad. All of her emotions radiated off the pages.
The writing was top notch. It pulled me in from the first page and kept me glued. I couldn’t read it fast enough.
I highly recommend this book. It’s just amazing!
