Creepy right? I'm not one for scary books but I thought I would give it a try. I'm happy I did because it was a really great book.
The book is set in 1926, Evie O'Neill has just been sent to New York after a scandal arises in her Ohio hometown. Evie is estastic-shopping and parties-what's not to love? The only downside is she has to live with her uncle the who owns the Museum of American Folklore, Superstition, and the Occult. Evie is having a fantastic time with her friends Mabel and Theta until her uncle is called to help with a murder of a young girl. As her uncle helps solve the case, he doesn't realize that Evie has a special power that may be the key to solving the murderer who is haunting New York City.
The book does have some scary moments for me but I don't really anything scary. The killer does sing the song from the trailer which gave me goosebumps. I bet the audio book would be great for people who like horror!
I can't decide if I like Evie or not. She definitely sticks up for herself and is the first to want to tackle the murders. There are many characters in the book-some with more minor roles but since this book is the first in a series I'm sure they will come up again in the books to come.
Don't be put off by the length of the book (it's nearly 600 pages) it was a quick read.
Now I can't wait for the second book to come out because from the conclusion of The Diviners it sounds great!
