OtakuMeganeChan’s Review:

While reading this book, I just wanted to devour it as much as I could. And I read this in one sitting!

The story is amazing, chilling and words fail me to express how much good the book is. Its a page turner. The characters, their story, the twists, the ending.. its REAL good!!

The language is simple to read and understand. The title of the book is apt. The cover is spooky….

However I have few cons, one being there are few typo errors I observed. And second being that at some parts you can’t make out the characters thinking to themselves – that was confusing.

Hence the rating is 4.5⭐!

Definitely recommend it! If you have read ‘Rosé’s Bent Stem’ then you are in for a treat! If not, I suggest you to read both! 🙈
