Bioquímica da Leitura

Terminada Mary Hades, lancei-me de imediato em Sister, que seria o volume 1.5 da saga da britânica Sarah Dalton. A obra inicia-se com a acção no tempo presente, com a Mary a ir visitar a tia Izzy para verem a passagem do mesmo cometa que passou, quando a sua prima, Lila nasceu.

This was a bit of an odd short story, in which Mary's aunt recalls a time when Mary's mother Suzie was possessed, and had to go through an exorcism. Kinda weird really. ...more
I read this shorty on Monday 2-2-15 after work. Sometimes thats what shortys are best for, right?
It was OKay, I didn't see the point. Except maybe to keep the readers awaiting the 2nd book on the hook as this was 1.5. So two stars as it is okay

This is about Mary’s mother and her sister. I went back after reading the last book and found TWO novellas and was so excited because I cannot get enough of this series. This is one of the novellas and is filled with as much creepiness and maybe even a bit more horror than the books!

In this Isabel is writing to her sister to explain that even after all of these quite horrifying events, she does not hold any ill will. I was curious how the book was going to progress as just a letter but progress
