Book synopsis(via Goodreads):
***Many thanks to Net Galley and Author Buzz for the advanced reader's copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.***
This insomniac's opinion:
If you've read this blog for long then you know that I have strange fascinations: World War II, big words....and witches. Ahem....And, here I am rating another book about witches and magic.
This book had many things going for it- great writing, what seemed to be very thorough research(although I surely didn't double check facts for the time period) and really solid characters. I read through the book pretty quickly and was incredibly fascinated by the mediums and their way of life in 19th century Europe.
However, the book did lose steam and believability towards the end and I was honestly just ready to be done reading by the time the last page was turned.
Worth staying up all night?
I did for the first half of the novel!
