    Chrysler Szarlan has created a story, which crosses the line between magic and urban fantasy. The magic and illusion of magic shows, and the magic of something akin to witchcraft, passed down from generation to generation of female family members.The past becomes part of the present, as the the tragedies that hit Revelation and her family become linked with unsolved mysteries that have left a small town isolated and deserted.I think the first half of the book focused far too much on what happens to the husband, because the actual main attraction emerges in the second half.It often felt like Szarlan hopped from one sub-plot to another and didn't concentrate enough on the main plot. Despite that the story and idea has a lot of potential and certainly plenty of possibilities for further books.I did leave me with a few unanswered questions though. The reader finds out why Hannah disappears, where the other girls ended up, but that didn't gel with what happened with the rest of the town.Is the book driven by the keeper, is the keeper driven by the book or do the emotions of the keeper drive the book? That is the real question and perhaps Szarlan will answer in a sequel.I received a copy of this book courtesy of NetGalley and the publisher.

    I received a copy of The Hawley Book of the Dead from the publisher in return for an honest review."In the tradition of The Night Circus and A Discovery of Witches, The Hawley Book of the Dead is the kind of novel that makes you believe that magic really exists."As you can see from the statement above taken from the blurb of this book, it's been compared to a Discovery of Witches, a book I enjoyed very much. I don't agree with that at all, the only comparison I would say it has is the fact they are both stories built around a book. It's also a story about witches but there's no spells involved and there's not much magic in it at all, it's more a hint at magic.This book didn't hold my attention at all, I kept putting it down. I was reading and reading and yet nothing was actually happening. It was like someone had taken a shorter story and fluffed it and dragged it out over way too many pages. It wasn't till 76% that the book even turned up and after that it wasn't until 92% that it felt like something really started to happen to make it interesting.I was so frustrated at how slow and dragged out this story was, that I wanted to put it down and move onto something else. Only pure determination kept me reading this one to the end.
