Despite it's cover and awful title this is not horror, although it is very dark. This is an historical novel set during the Spanish Inquisition and it is quite simply wonderful.

More historical fiction. Less horror novel. But I like both types. I found this to be a jane eyre type novel I enjoyed it

This wasn't exactly what I expected. I wanted a haunted house type story and thats what I was told this book was about. Overall, it was alright. I didn't like how abrupt everything was. Character development was nowhere to be found.
