Welcome to York, England.
Mist lingers in the streets.
Narrow buildings cast long shadows.
This is the most haunted city in the world. . . .
Miranda Tennant arrives in York with a terrible, tragic secret. She is eager to lose herself amid the quaint cobblestones, hoping she won't run into the countless ghosts who supposedly roam the city. . . .
Then she meets Nick, an intense, dark-eyed boy who knows all of York's hidden places and histories. Miranda wonders if Nick is falling for her, but she is distracted by another boy — one even more handsome and mysterious than Nick. He lives in the house across from Miranda and seems desperate to send her some sort of message. Could this boy be one of York's haunted souls?
Soon, Miranda realizes that something dangerous — and deadly — is being planned. And she may have to face the darkest part of herself in order to unravel the mystery — and find redemption.
I didn't really enjoy reading this book. The writing didn't capture my attention, neither did the plot, or the characters, so in the end, I only breezed over the pages, I didn't really read them, just enough to get the gist of the story. I just wanted to get through it, and be done with it.
It was a really good thing that this was a pretty short book, so I didn't use too much of my reading time on that, because that would've sucked. It seems this week was cursed with some books that weren't to my tastes, that I didn't fully or truly enjoy.
I did enjoy the mystery, it was really dark and creepy, and all the clues, and what they added up to, and then the big twist? That twist, I did not expect, and yet, should've, because man, did I have some suspicions about him!
Do I wish that I hadn't read this book? A bit. Do I wish I'd read something else? Most definitely. But this was a pretty decent book, and it did have some good things going for it, so I did have some enjoyment in reading it!
This wasn't really the book for me, but I know that it is the book for someone else!
