That pain is in my bones, in my blood.
This book is beautifully written and the story so delicately crafted. This speaks to my everything.
I‘ve been reading too many books I haven‘t liked lately and I‘m sick of it. I decided to bail on this one 197 pages in.
I just couldn‘t stand Caleb or honestly Tabby. All the decisions she made were infuriating. I just didn‘t like anyone and was not enjoying myself while reading.
I liked the other 2 Hester Fox books I read, so it might just be this one. I‘ll pick up her other books in the future.
This book is awful. Caleb is a terrible character and love interest. He only thinks of himself and what he needs. And also the character of Tabby and her long lost sister don‘t have much plot moving the storyline forward, there‘s a lot of dull moments and it just doesn‘t entice the reader. I only finished it to add to my goals for Goodreads.
I liked the gothic feel to this one and the atmosphere was good. It was not creepy or spooky though, and I think I was expecting that based on the cover. Overall, I think this is a good choice for fall reads, but not necessarily Halloween reads.
Also: I had never heard of the “Resurrection Men” before, but I enjoyed doing my own outside research about who they were. Fascinating!!
I received this book from NetGalley. This was my first read from Hester Fox. The story of an orphaned medium trying to stop grave robbers. I really enjoyed the characters and how believable that they seemed. It was a gothic spooky story that was unique in style. Set in 1800s New England, the story has a great atmospheric feel. This is a great Fall story.
