Nadia Nader contacted me about reviewing her book and provided me with an ebook copy in exchange for an honest review.
The story begins with our main character Vivian. Vivian is going through a bad time in her life. She just lost her mother in a tragic accident and her father has decided to send her to live with her mother’s sisters (whom she didn’t even know existed until her mother’s death).
When she arrives in Misty Hills she notices this town is unlike any town she’s ever lived in. There’s just something that makes it different. Once she is off the bus she finds two kids her age waiting to take her to Tremaine Estate.
Tremaine Estate is described as beautiful yet mysterious. One can tell that there are secrets waiting to be discovered. It was something I sensed throughout the book. I wanted to know what mysteries there were, what secrets were not being told, and what was the truth.
Vivian discovers a curse has been placed on her family. She doesn’t believe it, how could curses be real? She must learn to accept things that don’t seem always true and find a way to break the curse through the clues she believes her mother has left behind.
I loved the mysteriousness and secrets of the book. I also loved the way magic was incorporated throughout the book. It was very intriguing and kept me engaged the whole time. I was a bit frustrated with all the half truths and the secrets because I really wanted to know what was going on. Overall, it was a good story very unique and leaves you wanting more.
I cannot wait for the second part, I hope the questions I have are finally answered.
