Plot: Reading this book is as entertaining and riveting as watching a film. However, the author should consider fewer POV characters so that readers can focus on the plot, especially at the beginning of the story.
Prose/Style: The prose flows well, and word choice is exquisite.
Originality: Again, the prose elevates this novel. Deanne and Sara are strong characters, but the book would benefit from less points of view so that readers can focus.
Character Development: The characters are believable, and this book is worthy of a wide readership. Focusing on a few main characters would keep the plot and perspectives structured.
Powerful prose and strong characters make this supernatural mystery a satisfying read and a page-turner.
