RATING: 4 stars

This book could have gotten 5 stars for me, but it had a bad ending and I HATE cliffhanger-y bad endings, so that drops it down to 4. All I will say, so I don’t give any spoilers is that if you like Nevermore by Kelly Creagh, you’ll probably like this. The way that books worships Edgar Allen Poe is the way this one is with Washington Irving. The ending isn’t quite as bad, but it’s close. If you are looking forward to seeing Abbey & Caspian ride off happily into the sunset, it definitely isn’t gonna happen in this book. I’m getting ready to start the next book, but it’s unlikely to happen there either. ::sad face::
