Inhaltsangabe

From the New York Times best-selling author of Furyborn comes a breathtaking and spine-tingling novel about three teenage girls who face off against an insidious monster that preys upon young women. Perfect for fans of Victoria Schwab and Stranger Things.

Who are the Sawkill Girls?

Marion: The newbie. Awkward and plain, steady and dependable. Weighed down by tragedy and hungry for love she’s sure she’ll never find.

Zoey: The pariah. Luckless and lonely, hurting but hiding it. Aching with grief and dreaming of vanished girls. Maybe she’s broken - or maybe everyone else is.

Val: The queen bee. Gorgeous and privileged, ruthless and regal. Words like silk and eyes like knives; a heart made of secrets and a mouth full of lies.

Their stories come together on the island of Sawkill Rock, where gleaming horses graze in rolling pastures and cold waves crash against black cliffs. Where kids whisper the legend of an insidious monster at parties and around campfires. Where girls have been disappearing for decades, stolen away by a ravenous evil no one has dared to fight…until now.

It just didn't do it for me

After I finished the last book of The Raven Cycle series, by Maggie Stiefvater, I wanted to continue my exploration with young adult books. I got the recommendation for this book by chance and I decided to buy it and listen to it.

• personally, the narrator's voice did absolutely nothing for me. Shrill in some places, which I suppose has something to do with acting out scenes in the book
• Because of this, I found myself really irritated and annoyed at times
• sometimes I felt like it was a tad too much "acting " for me (eye roll)
• I felt like there was way more intrigue in Maggie's characters, I didn't relate to these as much as I would have liked too
• there is so much maaaagic in Maggie's books and mind you, I am not a young adult anymore BUT I absolutely enjoy her books

Long story short, I was foolish to have such high expectations after reading such wonderful books by Maggie Stiefvater and I would not recommend this book to a friend.
