The opening is classic Gothic Romance.
Evalina is a young American girl who comes from a family of actors who neglect and abuse her. They send her to stay with two eccentric aunts living in a remote mansion in the English countryside. In the opening scene, Evalina boards a train and soon finds her compartment invaded by a very attractive but disturbing young man who piques her curiosity. Hearing her name, he rudely rebuffs her, steeping on her oh-so-senstive toes.
Naturally, she cannot forget him.
From the train, Evie takes a coach. The coachman lets her off at a fork in the road, forcing her to choose which path to take in an attempt to find her aunts’ house. She passes through a dark forest in the rain, leaving her heavy suitcase in a bush, intending to to retrieve it later on. When she arrives at the door to the house with the suitcase mysteriously at her side, we know we are in the realm of the paranormal.
The strange aunts get along together like chalk and cheese. There is clearly a rivalry between the uptight, spinsterish Aunt Priscilla and her wild, erotic younger sister, Aunt Kellie. And they are not very nice to Evalina. There seems to be a plot against Evalina, a sense that perhaps a sacrifice is at hand. She overhears the aunts complaining that her father had sent Evie in his place, and that she, being of his bloodline, would have to do.
This mystery seems to be tied up with the Wrath and Evie’s ability to walk through it unscathed.
Nevertheless, it was a good read, with an interesting plot, a well developed mystery, a bit of suspense, a hint of dark humor and a satisfying ending that left the door open for a sequel. I would love to know more about how things turned out for Evie, Nate and Gabriel. I really like the setting, England which I adore, the story's dark and foreboding atmosphere. I like Evie well enough but I really felt empathy for her regarding her lonely upbringing, her desire to please and be liked. Of course,I loathed her aunts and parents. I especially recommend this book to readers that are interested in a PG, YA, gothic, paranormal mystery. I didn't notice any editing errors which is always commendable. lol Enjoy!
