I really did adore this book. Here's the thing. I'm a setting freak. Which means, I like to mentally picture the places in the books I read based on the information given by the author. I generally won't rate a book high if I can't do that. I think the setting is what makes or breaks a novel, but hey that's my opinion.That being said, I thought the setting in this novel was perfect. It was creepy and I really felt the historical aspects were done really well. The story was riveting, the plot was really tight, and I had a difficult time putting this book down. It's definitely a re-read for me.
