The Lost Girls–Book Review

The Lost Girls: A dark and twisty supernatural thrillerThe Lost Girls: A dark and twisty supernatural thriller by Sarah Painter
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I’m only giving this three stars because it was really disjointed in the beginning. There were a lot of jarring jumps between scenes throughout, but they started making more sense later in the book so weren’t quite as bad, but it was hard to track what was happening. I had to work a little harder than I usually like to keep going. That said, I really enjoyed the characters and the premise and the undercurrent of magic in modern places.

The Fox’s Curse Review

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was another fun read. One of the things I especially like about this stories is the little hints of things going on underneath the main story. Hints about the Families and other possible magic. The hints make me try to guess what these bigger stories might be and keep me reading to see if I get any more hints.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another fun story. I love how fast these are even if it makes them really hard to put down so going to bed at a reasonable time is out of the question. The ending was a little abrupt and left a couple of cliffhangers (I really don’t like cliffhangers!), though, but at least the next book is out so I can jump right in and see what’s happening next.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This story kept pulling me along, sometimes dragging me to the next part, sometimes just encouraging me to get there. But it was always hard to find a stopping point. There was such a rhythm, such an ebb and flow to the whole thing, and the slowly unfolding depths kept emerging. It was somehow slow moving and intense all at once. Very worth reading.
