Disclosure: I downloaded a copy of this book for free on NetGalley in return for writing an honest review on my blog.
When I first read what the book was about I definitely thought it had a spooky feel to it – the basis of the story being centred around the night of Halloween when an entire group of villagers went missing. What happened, why did they all disappear?
My rating: 5/5
The moment I saw this book on NetGalley I knew it was one I wanted to read, I’ve never read any of Tim Weaver’s books before but the story really intrigued me. This is actually the tenth book in the David Raker series but even though I haven’t read the other books, I didn’t feel it effected me with reading this one in its own right.
I loved how the book switched between the past and the present, different parts of the story and various characters coming together in a way that was complex but still easy to follow. The story really pulled on your emotions, particularly towards the end of the book.
It might be a longer book than some (I always check before reading how long a book is) and I found out it is over 500 pages but it didn’t feel that long when I was reading it, which shows just how good the story was.
The characters were well written, the writing made you really feel for them, my favourite character was Jo, there were many great characters in the book though.
If you love a good crime novel you should definitely give this one a read!
