An isolated convent, a supernatural presence, a dark secret…
17-year-old Paloma only wanted to hold a séance to contact her dead father. She never thought she would be kicked out of school and end up in an isolated convent. Now, all she wants is to be left alone. But slowly, she develops a bond with a group of girls: kind-hearted Maria, insolent Silvy, pathological liar Adelita, and their charismatic leader Rubia. When, yet again, Paloma holds a séance in the hope of contacting her father, she awakens an entity that has been dormant for years. And then, the body count begins. Someone doesn’t want the secret out…
Are the ghost and Paloma’s suspicions real—or only part of her growing paranoia and delusions?
The story is set in a convent where Paloma meets interesting people.
I liked how Zoe created Rubia – crafty and endearing. How she wrote Rubia made her seem the most real character amongst others.
The story ends unexpectedly. The facts are just spilled out without any warning which is some authors style but didn’t feel okay here. Also, I thought there would be more of Paloma and Rubia’s confrontation. So…hoping for a sequel (or a short story to explain the after events.)
Other than that, I liked the story.
Zoe’s books keep getting better and better.
