I really didn't know what to expect from this but I actually really enjoyed it! It felt like a really unique story with solid foundations with how the paranormal aspects interact with the world as we know it. Elenora was a really enjoyable character who I was really rooting for. Rolland's story was so intriguing and I thoroughly enjoyed the rollercoaster of figuring out whether he was trustworthy or not! A great read, especially for Halloween season! Can't wait to read the next installment next year.
