Fourteen-year-old Greg Dixon is living a nightmare. Attending boarding school outside of Boston, he is separated from his family when a pandemic strikes. His classmates and teachers are dead, rotting in a dormitory-turned-morgue steps from his room. The nights are getting colder, and his food has run out. The last message from his father is to get away from the city and to meet at his grandparents' town in remote New Hampshire.

Ophelia Castellan will never be just another girl at Elsinore Academy. Seeing ghosts is not a skill prized in future society wives. Even when she takes her pills, the bean sidhe beckon, reminding her of a promise to her dead mother. Now, in the wake of the Headmaster's sudden death, the whole academy is in turmoil, and Ophelia can no longer ignore the fae. Especially once she starts seeing the Headmaster's ghosts - two of them - on the school grounds.

After reading Dot Hutchinson's second published novel, "The Butterfly Garden," I wanted to read her other and first published work. What a disappointment. This is a work that romanticizes death and suicide with poetic and flowery language. I found myself rolling my eyes throughout its telling and was glad when it finally ended. I wished that I had returned it.

Five minutes in I was afraid that I had wasted a credit. The characters show their flaws- racism and otherwise; however there are people like that everywhere. The gems in this book were those who stood up for the right things. I really liked it.

I can't get enough of Philippa Gregory's books. I love the books. I'm only sad that I'm going through them so fast that I'll be finished soon. They're so good that I might just have to read them all again. I love how she brings these women to life.

This is a good story. The female characters are flawed but likable and have a realistic slant on life. You feel like you could have known these characters and find yourself routing for them to have their happy ending. The author chooses to narrate her own work, which is a mistake, as she does not have the voice for it.
