But all is not as it seems at the ancestral manor. The estate is full of secrets, ravens cluster on the parapets, and a ghostly young woman cries out at night. This garden conceals a rotten heart, and it plans to squeeze the last beat from Dawn’s…

Absolutely loved this book. Could not put it down. For the quality of the writing I was amazed to get the book for free here. The storyline is interesting, and while the lore could use a little bit more development and the ending was a little rushed, I found the entire novel to be engaging and exciting.55
Very unique. I haven’t read a ton of Victorian era stories, but this is certainly my first of this type of supernatural element. It was unique and intriguing. The characters were well developed as was the story. Just really enjoyed it.55

I’ve read the “Ella” series by this author and enjoyed the twist on the fairy tale. This book was fun to read and kept me wondering what would happen next. I like the twists and turns the author engages in. Well worth the time.45
