I already adored Caitlin Starling after falling in love with The Luminous Dead . But I was not prepared for the story she weaved together here. If you loved Mexican Gothic for it’s dark, atmospheric, historical setting – pick this book up ASAP.

Living in a state of mourning for her lost family, Evelyn is very wealthy. She also dabbles in herbalism. So when a mysterious disease starts spreading through her town, she is quickly roped in.

But it is not what it seems. And Evelyn is dragged into something much more consuming and dangerous, opening up her secrets.

Thank you to Libro.FM and the publisher for providing me with a copy of this audio book. This does not impact my opinions, whatsoever.
