Ok, one, I really like Niki's character. She's very mature for her age, which is I think probably a result of her parents' deaths and how hard she's had to work since then. She's practical, reserved, sensible, smart, cautious... I guess she reminds me a lot of Nancy Drew in a way, and I LOVED that series. But what's awesome is that she doesn't stay that way: Niki develops quite a bit throughout the book, unlike Nancy Drew who just kinda stays the same person. Niki becomes a little more outgoing and "adventurous", for a dramatic word.
Two, the AMBIANCE was PHENOMENAL. I had goosebumps reading through this book, and I don't know if I should slap myself because I just get spooked easily or if I should applaud the author for doing such an amazing job on that. Either way, the book did its job. Is it stupid I had to read with the lights on at some points...? Specifically (no spoilers) I'm thinking of the part where Niki's hosting her party and she finds out Kylie's drawing is of three sisters on the stairs, one of which is holding a hammer. It just creeped. Me. Out. o.o
Overall, I totally enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone looking for a short yet spooky read for a late night!
Niki has had a tough couple of years. Orphaned at an early age and nearly perishing in a car accident herself, Niki is about to graduate high school, and is evicted by her uncaring aunt. Establishing a new residence at an old house with a reputation for being haunted, she soon discovers that she has abilities that go far beyond the normal - apparitions of a mysterious young man named Keith haunt her, along with images of a terrible, demonic, skeletal creature ... and it's all connected to the house she now resides in.
Psychomanteum is a fast and enjoyable read. The story could have stood to be a little bit more fleshed out, but otherwise, a very good read. Can't wait for Part 2!
In this short story Veil does a great job of making you feel invested in the characters. I enjoyed the suspenseful feeling of wondering if they would all make it out alive. This is definitely a story geared more towards young adults but adults can enjoy it as well.
Psychomanteum is filled with suspense and a real page turner. It makes an easy and enjoyable read for a relaxing afternoon.
From the start of this novel, there are weird encounters that surprise your curiosity and keep you interested. There are also religious overtones that lend more believability while telling a beautiful love story.
Laurel writes: “That’s the thing about evil, he thought. If everyone could see it for what it really is, everyone would avoid it.” I think that is so true and goes to the heart of this novel.
