's review

it was amazing

The Thirteenth Tale thrusts readers into the misty forests and glens of Yorkshire; an appropriate setting for the mysterious characters and their secrets. Scenes of incest, lunacy, abandonment, and love - the kind of love that only twins can have for each other - are superbly woven into an intriguing tale that moves along at a pace that allows the reader to savor the superb writing of this top-notch author. This enchanting drama is highly recommended for readers that enjoy beautiful language, meticulously rendered settings, and deep emotions, depicted in a story that will haunt their souls long after they've read the last page.
