I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It has a dark atmosphere and the author does a fantastic job of describing the setting of the book. There are many twists and turns and just when you think you have figured something out..NOPE! Personally, I have an appreciation for "dark" stories. This book is about an old family curse involving the devil. Essentially it is about the battle of good versus evil. If you enjoy dark, fantasy YA novels, this book is for you.
