Ive never read a Catriona Ward book before, but I think this one just made me a fan! This was a fun and dark twisty gothic horror. It hit the spot perfectly! I’ll definitely be adding a physical copy to my library, especially since release day is my birthday!

This is the third novel I’ve read from Ward and once again she delivers. As with all her work she has the uncanny ability to sublimely weave a grisly tale that never takes the assumed path and keeps you guessing to the end. The story takes place in the 1920’s on a secluded rocky coast of Scotland with children being raised by Uncle. Catriona creates details so vivid that you can feel the cold of the sea and character depth like very few can accomplish. Highly recommended - Violence, subtle abuse

I wasn’t sure what to expect from his book but I ended up really loving it. It’s an apocalyptic book that’s extremely interesting and easy to read. It read extremely fast and I really loved the plot.
