OK so the title was a bit off putting because damn, wtf. Something strange and deadly? Anyway, I picked this up because it was $1.99 on amazon for the kindle edition and I was looking for a YA book so I thought, why the fuck not?
Despite the fucking weird ass title, I give it 3/5 stars.
Eleanor Fitt’s brother is missing and something strange and deadly is out there killing people. She turns to these spirit hunters to fight off the dead in hopes to find her brother.
I actually enjoyed the book. I read it a while ago, and it didn’t leave a super lasting impression on me, but I know I actually liked it. It was a fun read, wasn’t oozing with romance, and I found myself enjoying the 1800’s setting.
What I liked about this book is that, as I said, it wasn’t like fluffy romance that you find in typical YA books. UGH! I feel terrible because I actually did like this book but I FUCKING FORGOT WHY! WTF!!
One thing I did like was that Eleanor lost her hand. I mean shit, that stuff doesn’t happen in YA, and it was refreshing to see happen to the main protagonist, much less a girl because they’re supposed to be perfect creatures that shit rainbows, yanoe?
A few things I didn’t like that I remember is, and theses are the only things, because I don’t want to rag on the book. One, some of the description and action sequences, I found myself glazing past them. Two, the ‘twist’ AKA her brother being the necromancer was kind of not surprising, I mean she kind of just laid it out there. Three, if I hear Eleanor say ‘missfit/misfit’ one more time….
That’s all. Yes I will read the next book. No I will not be reading the e-novella. And yes, I will probably wait until the second book is on some deal where I can get it for under $5.
