Is River just a crooked-smiling liar with pretty eyes and a mysterious past? Or could he be something more?
Violet’s grandmother always warned her about the Devil, but she never said he could be a dark-haired boy who takes naps in the sun, who likes coffee, who kisses you in a cemetery… who makes you want to kiss back.
- Violet is an amazing, if not entirely likable or relatable, character.
- And portraying some characters as both murderously wicked and responsibly compassionate, in a realistic and believable way, is utter genius.
- I read this book in three days, so compelled was I to figure out what was going on and whom to trust.
I’m a coffee-fueled, hobby-addicted bibliophage who makes cruelty-free mineral eye shadows (inspired by novels). I’m usually in front of a screen (writing, reading, or gaming), but I’ve been known to emerge for geekery, good food, and dark chocolate.
