a fun, action-packed western adventure, not set in the old west, but in the tiny international hub of Sault Ste. Marie, MI. The history of the town and the nation are exquisitely detailed in this short work of fiction.
Definitely the best free book I've read in a long time. The characters were well-written and well-rounded. I could really identify with Mary and, as an adult, want to smack her guidance counselor.
A definite must read for young adults wanting something different.
I am only giving it a 4/5 due to a few minor grammatical problems, not enough to detract from the enjoyment of the story, but the occasional "she" does take some figuring out as to who it refers.
The book starts off a little slow, but picks up pace about halfway through when the characters start to realize what they're up against.
I didn't expect the ending.
All in all, I got more than $3.99 worth of blood, gore and entertainment
Well written with believable characters...if you can believe in a girl who talks to the dead. A good read for adults, as well as teens.
It was well worth the $0.99. I would gladly pay four times that.
Some minor grammer problems, otherwise it would get a full five stars.
Anxiously awaiting book 3.
This one started out a little slow, but picked up and I soon found that I couldn't put it down. I found the addition of boyfriend problems and her friendship with Rachel getting tested added a nice layer of real teen issues to Mary's already messed up life. This was definitely a fun read and it's nice to see that this series isn't diminishing in quality.
I loved the characters and the setting, everything felt very real. I loved Meg's obsession with Kitty being the person behind Margaret's fall that was so strong she missed some very obvious things going on around her.
The book could have done with a little more editing, there was the occasional grammatical hiccup, but the story was good enough to overlook them.
If there is a sequel, I will most likely be picking it up.
