I requested this because it looked fascinating and dark and spooky and it was…. not those things. Mostly, it was bland and boring. I didn’t care about the characters or what happened to them. I ended up skimming to see if it got better and it…. didn’t. The pacing was weird, with scenes that felt redundant. There were a lot of things I just didn’t understand. I agree with other reviewers: it felt like a first draft. It could be amazing – but it needs some work to get there.
