The doubting of doubt is the beginning of faith.
What an interesting and unique mystery thriller book! I’m very happy with how this turned out. A much more fun and exciting read than the last few things I’ve read.
So eloquently written! I feel like I’ve read too many books recently that just give you a story, they don’t do anything to set up the story, don’t give you a clear picture of where the story’s set, how the characters are feeling, how beautiful or horrible their surroundings are. The Fire Child,however, does all of that and more. This is the sort of novel that you completely invest your imagination into, the language in this bookshows you what you’re reading. The simultaneously gorgeous and terrifying sights of Cornwall come alive in your mind while you’re reading this.
Each character in this book was so well developed. You really managed to get to know each and everyone of them. All of them helping you piece together the mystery of Nina’s death, little by little.
I have been in a bit of a slump with reading this past week, but the last 15% of this novel really had me hooked! I was rushing through the pages, trying to work out what was going on, praying Rachel and Jamie would be safe. I loved how creepy it got! Mystery thrillers tend to just be exciting and fast faced, but this had a kind of scary factor within it too, with all the old history, deaths and talk of ghosts, it was certainly a rather unique mystery book.
So I was so certain I’d guessed what the twist was going to be and oh what a fool I was to think I could have guessed it so early on in the novel. This has a shocker of an ending. Well, maybe it doesn’t, but because I was so dead set on what I thought was going to happen, it feels like it does.
I feel like all novels out there are just trying to put women off getting into a relationship / marriage with men! Why are men so evil in books?
Thanks to Netgalley and HarperCollins UK, HarperFiction for giving me the opportunity to read this in exchange for an honest review.
