My Review

I received this book from NetGalley for an honest feedback.

The theme of the book was dark and intriguing which excites me even more. I love the style of writing here. The book was well-written and the style of writing was easy to follow. It was easy to follow especially with how beautiful the descriptive the book is. The author was able to write about Pagan, Witchcraft and Wicca well. The main character, Claire, showed how worried she was about her newborn child and the weird dreams she had about something dark taking her child away. I felt that the book was well-written in overall aspects be it the storyline, character development and even the setting itself.

However, I felt that the book was long winded. The story line was too long which could drain readers from reading it. It felt repetitive at times and I could not understand the part in which she had a crush on the guy who helped her. That part was a little not well-explained on how he was able to be there when he was already dead. But otherwise, I just have an issue with the length and the repetitiveness of the book.

Sum Up

Overall, I found the book to be a great read. As stated above, the book was indeed well done in all aspects. The development from one stage to another was great and it went above my expectations.
