This was a cheesy, corny, cliche dramatic love story in the guise of a horror story. So cheesy it was painful 90% of the time. Such a shame because the actual horror bits were great.
"Great premise, slow delivery"
I was a little disappointed with this book. It had a lot of great reviews deeming it terrifying and creepy as hell, and it started off that way with a really intense opening, but then it mellowed out and got really slow for the middle section of the book. At times I thought I was reading a broken-home romance drama until brief scenes came along that reminded me of the main plot of the book. The ending was great, but I felt it's intensity and excitement came a little too late. I didn't hate this book, but I feel it just didn't deliver enough. The narration was great and Vanessa Johansson kept me as interested in the slow parts as I could be, but the book itself just wasn't paced right for my liking.
