There is a genuine sadness to be understood while reading this series. I've found myself very much dealing with the post-read depression that occurs due to having immersed in Ari Berk's beautifully envisioned afterlife, where wrongs can be set right and the restless dead can find meaningful closure. Mistle Child is again no exception, and in this immersive sequel, one becomes lost in the mystery of Silas Umber's expansive ancestral home, Arvale, as well as the horrors buried and forgotten beneath it. Well-researched medieval ballads paint a sorrowful backdrop to the story of the Mistle Child, and an awesomely exciting cliffhanger make waiting for Lych Way, the sequel, that much more unbearable. This is excellent storytelling, all around; very much H.P. Lovecraft for the YA reader.
