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?


My Thoughts

I read this book for an honest review, and let me just saying im so glad i did. It was an amazing book. I’m not sure what makes me so drawn to it, but i feel like it definitely piqued my interest in this sub-genre…. which is like convent/mental institution + ghost + dark past/secrets.

The characters in this book were flawless. They were all unique and diverse in persinality. It was really fun learning about each character’s motivations and past. Most of the characters have some sort of interesting twist or secret, so that made the book even more exciting.

Another thing i really enjoyed was the atmosphere and world building. The convent and surrounding grounds were described beautifully. This book play out like a movie in my head because of the great desriptions by the author.

The only slightly less perfect thing about this book would be the ending. I loved how it ending really, but i feel a few things were left to question. Maybe that was meant to make you think, Unfortunately, ive been sick with the flu and i dont really want to think about anything right now, lol.
