if i had thought that a great and terrible beauty was a wonderful book ..this one was much better..during the book we fall again through Gemma's world, the writer taking us years ago to the 1896, when we can enjoy the beauty, elegance, and charm of that era as much as being confronted with the lies lying just beneath the surface of such a terrible society.
I enjoyed reading about the different customs , the cruelty of that world, and the terrible outcomes of such a small things that we take for granted right now..
I enjoyed also the feeling of fear that got to me in those wicked visions she had..and the description is vivid that you feel trapped within the spirits, Nil's screams ..etc..And also the characters are so real and there secrets are so terrible ..And the change they have endured since the first book is so noticeable i just loved it :p..
But let's not forget about the fantastical world we were swimming through "the realms" and the exhausting search for the temple, i felt like i was reading two books instead of one, and every time Felicity,Anne and Gemma hold hands to find the door of light , i felt like i was with them too..and to be honest i haven't felt this excited about a book since the hunger games , the book has it flaws of course because i understood some encrypted messages long before the heroine did and that doesn't usually happen with me-let's just leave it that way because i don't want to give any spoilers-..
I highly recommend this book for anyone who likes getting into other worlds, legendary creatures and dark secrets..
