Customer Review

on 15 January 2013
Before reviewing this I have to declare that I'm probably not atypical of the readership expected for this novel, being middle-aged and male!
I read the Trylle trilogy a while ago, which were quite entertaining. Better than a lot of YA fiction, but not up to the standard of (say) the Hunger Games trilogy, for example.
This book is the start of a new series, and certainly ends leaving the reader wanting to know more, which is clearly a good idea if you're writing a book 2! It revolves around two sisters, one of whom is caught into a supernatural nightmare. I don't want to give away any of the plot, but there's some good interplay between the characters who are quite well drawn for a novel of this type. There's a smattering of romance, some mildly gruesome scenes, and a plot which encourages that 'I'll just read the next chapter' thing.
All in all, a good start to a new series, and whilst it wouldn't make my favourite books of all time list, I'd not be telling people to avoid it either. Worth a punt if you've not tried the author before.
