I've read other books by Darcy Coates and enjoyed them, but Voices in the Snow was disappointing. I expected more dystopian, more apocalypse, and less overdone wendigos and zombies.
If there was a musical equivalent, it would be a hint of Myrkur's haunting vocals coupled with the feel of the moors in Wuthering Heights.
Surprising page-turner about mother-daughter grifters, family drama, thriller, murder, and revenge.
It was a standard mystery, and it meandered more than it should have.
Emily Carroll again delivers a disturbing and gory narrative, complete with illustrations that drink from a well of the macabre.
4 stars As usual, Ruth Ware wraps you around her twisty finger and pulls you in against your will.
3 stars Cinematic as usual, Ahlborn's writing in this book was just as good as her other ones. I can't say Within These Walls is my favorite of hers or her creepiest, but it's definitely good, though not up to standards as her other books.
3 stars “A wall, after all, isn’t just about keeping others out. It can also be for trapping people inside.”
The book starts off mid-action and does.not.stop.
3 stars 18 year-old angry, rebellious, stubborn Stella is in jailed for the murder of 33-year-old Chris, businessman and millionaire. The question is: did she really murder him?
