This is the best book I’ve read this year, and I really hope there’s a sequel. I’ve read three books by Olsen in 2018, and all three have been good. This novel kept me guessing, and I particularly enjoyed the realistic flaws in the characters. I liked their addictions and the mistakes they made. I gave it five stars and can’t recommend this book enough.
This book started out with such promise, but it failed to fulfill that promise. It’s difficult to even place it into a category as it hold elements of magical realism, adventure, supernatural, and a mystery. The more I read, the more I wanted the book to be finished. I gave it three stars because there were positives to it, but not enough to make me want to know what was going to happen. In the end, I believed very little, and was incredibly disappointed.
