Customer Review

on 21 January 2014
Brilliant Southern Gothic tale of the paranormal that centres on Hoodoo. Set in the swamps of Louisiana, this is a dark, creepy ghost story that had me hooked from the beginning. Gorgeous artwork done in a cold palette of blues, greens and browns while the figures' bodies are drawn slightly askew, not quite realistic; both of which add to the atmosphere and mood. Aurora is a compelling character as she is at first dismayed by her creepy new surroundings and grandfather but it doesn't take her long to fit right in to this place where she obviously has a genealogical connection. Her little sidekick, the precocious raccoon Missy, while silent is an adorable partner. The story is spooky and quite unpredictable. I really enjoyed this and the book ends leaving us with the feeling that we may hope to see a sequel and have another adventure of magic and mayhem with Aurora on Ossuary Isle.
