My Review:
For the love of cupcakes and narwhals this story is amazing! I adored The Near Witch when I read it last year and I was one of the people who wondered about Cole’s past and what brought him to Near. This story answers those questions and more. The brilliantly haunting prose that Victoria Schwab used to lure readers into The Near Witch is once again present here which makes the city of Dale come alive to readers just like the town of Near did. This insight into Cole’s past is sure to make fans of Victoria Schwab’s debut novel insanely happy.
