She meant to help a ghost…not unleash a curse.
Amelia Dupree hasn’t seen the Woman in White since the night her brother died.
The ghost seems to have disappeared from the woods surrounding Asylum, Pennsylvania—that is, until Charlie Blue moves into the creepy old MacAllister House next door. Amelia can’t help liking him, even though she spent her childhood thinking his grandmother was a witch. And she definitely can’t ignore the connection between his arrival and the Woman in White’s return.
Then Amelia learns that the Woman in White is a prisoner, trapped between the worlds of the living and the dead. Devastated by the idea that her brother could be suffering a similar fate, Amelia decides to do whatever it takes to help the Woman in White find peace–and Charlie agrees to help her.
But when Amelia’s classmates start to drown in the Susquehanna River, one right after another, rumors swirl as people begin to connect the timing of Charlie’s arrival with the unexplained deaths. As Charlie and Amelia uncover the dark history of Asylum, they realize they may have unleashed an unspeakable evil. One they have to stop before everything they love is destroyed.
Disclaimer: This book was given to me from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review
There are very few books and movies which can make me stay up all night AFTER completing it because of fear or because my mind is in over drive.
This book definitely did.
The plot seemed so interesting, and the cover was absolutely gorgeous, but don’t be fooled by that! Its way more dark then it seems.
Amelia can see a ghost and after the terrible things that happened recently, she yearns to see the ghost again, as she may just hold answers to Amelie’s questions.
When Charlie entered the plot, I instantly knew there was something about him that was different.
So when girls began dying people started associating their deaths to his arrival, and the fact that his grand mother was called a witch by the locals.
There were some really adorable moments between the two main characters, and even though I didn’t enjoy Amelie’s relation with her other friends and her mother, I found her okay as a character. Although sometimes they acted so stupidly, I felt like banging my head to a wall!
As the mystery unveils we get sucked in the story as intrigue and suspense take over. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and I cannot wait for book 2!
