Strong start

The writing was great and I loved the characters, I just feel like it changed too drastically in the second half and broke a lot of the promises it had set up in the beginning.

A wonderful, beautiful, heartbreaking book

Wow. This book was such a roller coaster ride. when I first got the book, I imagined that it would be more of a fantasy mystery/crime/thriller. While there are many murder mystery aspects, that's not the main focus. In fact, I was surprised to find out that most of the book feels more like a slice-of-life fantasy. Though there is always danger and mystery lurking in the background, much of the book focuses on Hester's everyday life in Stonehenge, Colorado. Even though this wasn't what I'd expected, I found I didn't mind it. The world that Hester inhabits was so full, realistic, and enjoyable. Terrifying too, but also wonderful. The characters and setting really came to life for me.
The book was a little slow in places. Much of the first half of the book is setup, while the second half is payoff. I'm glad I stuck around. But, really, how could I have put it down when Hester was such a delight? I adore her as a character.
This book was a very emotional ride. Hester endured so much pain and heartache, so much so that I had to take breaks from the book at places. I would not recommend it too especially sensitive readers.
My only disappointment is that, although there is a delightful love triangle, the romance ended up being very bitter sweet. I'm not sure what's going to happen with the romantic elements in the next book, but I hope it has a happier ending then in this book.

Wonderful Read

Beautifully written and narrated, this captivating story drew me in from the beginning. While the story’s core mystery is both intriguing and original, it was the main protagonist, blind and mute demigoddess Hester Grayson, who kept me reading. Her strength, intelligence, and mettle are irresistible.
