4 out of 5 (very good)

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

I received this book from Xpresso Book Tours in return for a fair and honest review.

This book starts off telling a very sad tale - a mother has died, the father can't cope with a teenage daughter so she is packed off to live with aunts that she never knew about. That would be tough enough, right? However, things take a turn for the worse when Vivian finds out some strange details about her family that she never knew before. It appears that there is a lot missing from this young girl's knowledge so she takes it upon herself to find out everything she can, to meet it head-on.

This story moves along at a fair pace and is an entertaining read which I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to fans of the Paranormal / YA genre. However, the ending is so abrupt that it feels like it was just stopped, mid-flow. There is no real build up to the cliffhanger or to ending in general. It just... stops. You are also left with more questions than you started the book with so please don't read this expecting it all to be tied up with a pretty bow because you will surely be disappointed.
