And an orphan and an almost-orphan, as well as some super creepy people, an enigmatic host, and various adventures.
With all of this, we have what we need to solve a few puzzles, uncover family secrets, and oh, maybe also raise the dead. That last bit was a surprise, although not an entirely unexpected one.
Fortunately, the orphan has a heart of gold and something of a destiny to live out before she can find out more about who she is and who she might become. At 370 pages, it’s hitting the upper end of my middle grade brain, but for an avid reader, this one’s a treat.
