Synopsis: ‘Ebony Marshall is in her final year of high school. Five months, two weeks and four days . . . She can't wait to leave the town where she's known only as ‘Black'. Because of her name, of course. But for another reason, too.
Everyone says Black Marshall is cursed.
Three of her best friends have died in tragic accidents. After Oscar, the whispers started. Now she's used to being on her own. It's easier that way.
But when her date for the formal ends up in intensive care, something in quiet little Dainsfield starts to stir. Old secrets are revealed and terrifying new dangers emerge.
If only Black could put all the pieces together, she could work out who her real enemies are. Should she run for her life, or stay and fight?’
A quick and easy read. The actual mystery surrounding Ebony/Black is fascinating. I was hoping the author would explore this in more depth and it was disappointing that didn’t happen. That said this is still an enjoyable read.
The love triangle between Black, Ed and Aiden also could have been explored in more depth, but the eventual outcome is pleasing for the reader.
The actual themes within this novel are disturbing and at times unsettling and this just makes the book all the more intriguing.
