My Thoughts:

I picked this book up from the library on a whim because of the premise. This is not a book I would have read otherwise. The author was one I had read from before so that made me finish it. The book was hard to get through during certain parts. This book is Halloween themed and would a make an excellent read during the fall.

My main problem with this book is with the characters. Ember was hard to connect with and so was Jack. Both of them made the story clunky at times. I liked the background characters more and would have wanted to read more from them. The setting and premise were what saved the book for me.

Halloween is my favorite holiday so that part of the book was perfect for me. The premise as well sounded amazing. I wish the book had been spookier and also scarier. That would also be my other issues. Overall a good book but it could have been better.
