Received through GoodReads Giveaway.
I'm sorry. I couldn't finish this. I got about a hundred pages in, and couldn't continue.

My main issues were the many lengthy, overly-sentimental flashbacks and awkwardly over-detailed descriptions. The perspective also seemed to jump around alarmingly, and the dialogue was kind of cheesy, like that of a local-channel afternoon soap-oper

I got this book as a First Reads book and was looking forward to it. I wasn't sure what to think of this book after I finished it, and I'm still not sure.

I was pleased to receive this through Goodreads First Reads (although I was a little bummed that I wasn't able to win it in time to read it before Halloween, as it had promised to be creepy).

Creepy, it most certainly was. Unfortunately, I can't say much without ruining the whole story... so I won't. I will say this though. It took a turn I wasn't expecting. When the back of the book and the description on here said something about eerie, haunting legends and such older than King Arthur, I figure
