ARC Review: Small Favors by Erin A. Craig

Small Favors by Erin A. Craig

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This was… Creepy. Far too creepy for me, tbh, but also very good. I expected creepy after Erin Craig’s first book, but this one took it to the next level. It reminded me a lot of the movie The Village, with some fairy tales / lore mixed in.

Ellerie was a strong heroine, though her habit of almost realizing something important and then being distracted from it and forgetting for several chapters was a bit annoying. Whitaker was rather too perfect and had a tinge of heartache and desperation that it took a long time for Ellerie to see.

It was also a bit… gory. I really wasn’t expecting that. So, like I said, it was really well-written and a good story, just not really one I would normally read. It also wrapped up rather quickly / easily, after dragging on a bit too long, though it’s a stronger ending than in her first book.

*Thanks to NetGalley and Random House Children’s for providing an e-arc for review.
