Now ghouls, hellhounds—and most terrifying of all, the spirits of dark witches known as the Greymalkin Sisters—are hunting and killing young debutante witches for their powers. And, somehow, Emma is connected to the murders…because she keeps finding the bodies.
Can the cousins seal the gates before another witch is killed…or even worse, before their new gifts are stripped away?
I love how Harvey gave each of the cousins their own unique identities, even Cormac has something I like. You got a real piece of everyone's mind and heart. While you get to know them in their struggles, they still end up surprising you. My favorite part about these lovely ladies was how I could relate to Gretchen. She seems just like me, well, how I would be if I was made to wear fancy dresses with lots of layers and be a debutante.
You know how people said when you were younger if a boy picks on you it means he likes you? Well, this gives you another level of getting picked on, while subtly getting saved even f you don't know it. The little tiff between these two is amusing and childish yet you understand it, as the time warrants such behavior. I am thinking of all the possible outcomes for them and will still probably be wrong but they are great together!
I have always wanted to know what it would be like to love else where. Or be someone else. The details Alyxandra shoved at you (in a good way!) made me envious of Emma. I really felt like I was walking with her down the streets, cowled in a cape. Or running through the forest hiding in trees. It was all very real to me. This is definitely a book I will read again if not for the story then for the amazing imagery.
While I loved this book immensely and CANNOT WAIT for the next one, I felt as if it was slow I start, almost to wordy. Obviously, it wasn't bad enough to put down and I'm grateful I didn't! This is definitely a good read.
