A 60 Second Review by Anne Brees
Publication Date: September 6, 2016
Genre – Young Adult Fantasy
Summary – Everyone said the Graces were witches.
They moved through the corridors like sleek fish, ripples in their wake. Stares followed their backs and their hair.
They had friends, but they were just distractions. They were waiting for someone different.
All I had to do was show them that person was me.
Like everyone else in her town, River is obsessed with the Graces, attracted by their glamour and apparent ability to weave magic. But are they really what they seem? And are they more dangerous than they let on?
Initial Thoughts – When I received this ARC, I was so excited. I loved the cover. I loved the idea. I loved the magic. And this book certainly did not disappoint.
Plot – ★★★★★ This book kept me captured throughout the story. I was just as entranced with the Grace life as River was and I would have never predicted the ending.
Characters – ★★★★★ I absolutely loved the Graces and River. They all are broken people pretending to be whole. All of the characters had real flaws, and I found a part of myself relating to each of them.
Story world – ★★★★★ Laure Eve perfectly captures the small gossiping town, the beautiful, haunting Grace house, and so much more.
Style – ★★★★☆ I enjoyed Laure Eve’s style for this book. I think it matched pretty well with the genre, however it was just missing that little something.
Closing Thoughts – I really, really enjoyed this book. I was in need of a haunting and magical story, and this book was just that.
Recommendation – Recommended for someone who loves magic, mystery, and the underdog.
