“Then it is settled,” Felix declared. “Come hell or high water, when this is all over, at least one of us here will not make it out alive.”

When Bronwen Snow is pulled from her cottage in the middle of the night, she finds herself seeking the help of three mysterious boys who reside in an abandoned castle deep in the hillside. With only a hasty handwritten note and a vague sense of dread to guide her, Bronwen is forced to put her trust in the eccentric and willful Felix Cavara and his eternal curse – immortality.

My Take on the Book:

Hmmm

This is a tricky book to review. I was crazy about it but it was enjoyable with a fun and unique storyline. There were some moments where I felt annoyed with the characters and the speed of the connection that is built between them.

The book is short and the story takes place within a couple of days of each other so the progression felt too rushed and took me out of it. I couldn’t sink into the story and connect with the characters.

What I did enjoy was the originality and the ending. I found myself smiling when I realized that the story itself was not unfolding in a predictable manner. 


4 Quills

Originality plays a big role in the rating of this book. The characters were great on their own but together I wasn’t intrigued.

I was really put off by the pace of the story and the timeline but the base of the story is something I really liked and so I took that into account as well.

It’s a good book with an interesting story arc and unique qualities so I recommend it!
