I thought this was a really deep and meaningful book that could touch even the hardest of souls. I was very impressed by the way this book was written and consequently it took me only two days to read.
The book follows three people: Rebecca (the new girl in town), Ferelith (the strange elfin girl) and a priest from the eighteenth century. They are linked by their village and their macabre desire to discover what lies in wait for the dead. The places that were thriving in the seventeen-hundreds now lie in ruins, ready to crumble and reveal the ghastly truth …
This was an amazing book that would be suitable for most people. It creates a new genre of spiritual/historical/creepy. I would like to read more of Marcus Sedgwick’s work.
