Lucy Acosta's mother died when she was three. Growing up in a Victorian mansion in the middle of the woods with her cold, distant father, she explored the dark hallways of the estate with her cousin, Margaret. They're inseparable—a family.
When her aunt Penelope, the only mother she's ever known, tragically disappears while walking in the woods surrounding their estate, Lucy finds herself devastated and alone. Margaret has been spending a lot of time in the attic. She claims she can hear her dead mother's voice whispering from the walls. Emotionally shut out by her father, Lucy watches helplessly as her cousin's sanity slowly unravels. But when she begins hearing voices herself, Lucy finds herself confronting an ancient and deadly legacy that has marked the women in her family for generations.
I haven’t read Amy’s first book, Daughter Unto Devils, but after reading this book I definitely want to check it out! I really loved the Amy Lukavic’s voice comes out on the page. One thing that I really loved about this book was that it deals with an unreliable narrator. Ever since I read the first 2 books of the Mara Dyer trilogy, I’ve been hooked on unreliable narrators! Lucy is the name of our main character and she’s got some issues. Sometimes it was really difficult being in her head because she’s slightly suicidal (and that’s how I lost my dad). But I really loved reading her story!
There are some times within the book that I got a little confused as to what was happening because of the backstory, but that didn’t deter me too much away from still enjoying this creepy read! If you’re in the mood for some creepy reads with a gorgeously creepy cover to go along with it, I’d give this one a shot! Just in time for the fall weather when creepy reads are the best! 🙂
