Wow… this book!
When I was given an ARC of this just before I went on a beach vacation, I thought I would crack it open and read a little bit of it. I didn’t realize that I would get 60% through it because the plot hooked me so well! The writing is so fluid and when they get to the scenes within the Glass Vault, it was just so difficult to put down. I kept wanting to see what happened next and find out where the characters would go. I can feel Candace’s strong love of old horror movies come through on the pages. Each one made me smile.
The cover and premise already had my interest piqued, but the book itself is just fabulous! Think Waxwork with a very big twist. That ending – oh my gosh, I can’t wait to read the next book in this series! It definitely threw me for a loop and now I’m checking on when the next one gets re-released. I screamed with Perrie, I loved Maisie’s creativity, I felt sorry for Neven, and I swooned for August. Definitely a book that will pull you in.
Perrie is a high school student who has recently had a difficult break up with Neven. It doesn’t help that her heart is being stolen away by August, a fellow band member. While she’s dealing with all these emotions, a strange Glass Vault appears. As more of Perrie’s friends go missing, and the police start eying her suspiciously, Perrie has no choice but to investigate. But Quincey Wolfe’s Glass Vault is nothing like she expects.
Let’s just say that as someone who loves classic monster movies, loves horror and fantasy, and totally will binge watch Vincent Price films, I am really digging this series!
What I consider a 5-star book:
- Is it a fun read? Absolutely! I can’t say too much without giving spoilers, but yes it is.
- Would you recommend it to others? If you love classic horror films or books that make you keep turning the pages, check this out!
- Does it stick with you? These scenes… oh my gosh, again no spoilers, but yeah. Some of these scenes will never leave me, and I love it.
My overall rating? 5/5
