5 shocking and emotional CROWNS
Fallen is another wonderful book from this extremely talented author. It’s very different to her previous books and like nothing I’ve read before. It’s a little scary, but more so it’s shocking and brutal and heartbreakingly emotional at times. There are small paranormal elements, insofar as there are things that cannot be explained by simple logic, but I certainly would not describe it as a paranormal, or gothic, romance. What it definitely is, however, is real edge of your seat, heart stopping stuff and I absolutely loved it.
The story itself is much bigger, more intriguing and involved than it first seems and is told by way of chapters from the present and from the past. It’s very cleverly executed, as the characters in the present begin to unravel the mystery of the past as we’re also privy, to a certain extent, to those events taking place 13 years prior. A sort of interconnected, interwoven storyline which works perfectly in my opinion (even if I’m not explaining it very well).
I absolutely loved Scarlett, who was the most amazing, understanding parent to her gorgeous daughter Haddie. Haddie saw the world a little differently than those around her and her descriptions of that world were perfect. I wasn’t too sure of Camden at the beginning. His behaviour certainly gave me reason to be suspicious. I held out hope that, as with this story as a whole, things with him were not as they seemed. Was their meeting a coincidence or fate? Aside from the main characters, there are some great, well developed supporting characters too, each with their own unique personalities and important role to play.
Other than the synopsis, I had no idea what this book was about and I couldn’t possibly have guessed how everything would unfold. To say that my jaw dropped on more than one occasion is an understatement. When I wasn’t gasping, I was biting my nails. I don’t want to say too much, for fear of spoiling the story and I would urge you to go in blind, open minded, and experience everything as the author intended it to be experienced. I did and the impact was so much greater for it. However, if you need a trigger warning, then maybe this book is not for you. If not, then prepare yourself for a bumpy ride and allow yourself to feel all the emotions this incredible story will undoubtedly evoke along the way.
Scarlett Lattimore arrives at Lilith House, an abandoned mansion built in 1876, that later housed a reform school for troubled girls, to start a new life with her seven-year-old daughter.
But between the nearby town with the strange, disconcerting feel, the deputy sheriff who is equal parts intriguing and suspicious, and the discovery that their new home holds a dark and violent past, Scarlett soon begins to question her rash decision.
She is shaken and afraid by the screams that echo in the walls and the drumbeat that arises from the surrounding woods where the ghost of an indigenous man is said to roam, seeking vengeance. Her fear is also personal, because Scarlett knew one of the girls who attended the school, a friend who escaped into those woods and was never seen again. They all thought she was a rebellious runaway who later encountered foul play, but perhaps the truth is far more sinister.
As Scarlett’s extraordinary daughter Haddie becomes consumed by the eerie figure who weaves and beckons through the forest fog, and a legacy of secrets reveal themselves, it becomes clear both Scarlett and Haddie are in grave danger. When the past intersects with the present, they will come face to face with the true evil of Lilith House. An evil that has lasted for more than a century
