Seven girls tied by time.
Five powers that bind.
One curse to lock the horror away.
One attic to keep the monsters at bay.
After the storm of the century rips apart New Orleans, sixteen-year-old Adele Le Moyne wants nothing more than her now silent city to return to normal. But with home resembling a war zone, a parish-wide curfew, and mysterious new faces lurking in the abandoned French Quarter, normal needs a new definition.
As the city murder rate soars, Adele finds herself tangled in a web of magic that weaves back to her own ancestors. Caught in a hurricane of myths and monsters, who can she trust when everyone has a secret and keeping them can mean life or death? Unless… you’re immortal.
I first saw this book on Instagram and was immediately drawn to it because the cover is stunning. I didn’t even really read the blurb…just added it to my Amazon cart. Yup I tend to buy books just cause the covers are really pretty…and this one is absolutely gorgeous in person. It’s haunting and mesmerizing at the same time. When I finally read the synopsis, I was quite fascinated – there’s myth, monsters, mystery, magic and romance. While I’m really excited to get into this, I’ll probably save it for fall/winter. Sounds like a great book to curl up with during those long gloomy days along with some yummy chocolate chip cookies and a nice hot cup of tea.
