Book: Dont breath a word
Author: Jennifer McMahon
On a soft summer night in Vermont, twelve-year-old Lisa went into the woods behind her house and never came out again. Before she disappeared, she told her little brother, Sam, about a door that led to a magical place where she would meet the King of the Fairies and become his queen.
Fifteen years later, Phoebe is in love with Sam, a practical, sensible man who doesn’t fear the dark and doesn’t have bad dreams—who, in fact, helps Phoebe ignore her own. But suddenly the couple is faced with a series of eerie, unexplained occurrences that challenge Sam’s hardheaded, realistic view of the world. As they question their reality, a terrible promise Sam made years ago is revealed—a promise that could destroy them all.
I dont normally read books like this, but it was a deal on Kindle & someone told me that she really enjoyed it... so I gave it a go.
One word comes to mind - FREAKY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The book goes back to & forth to when Lisa disappeared to the current day with Phoebe dating Lisa's brother, Sam... & odd things start to happen. They get a message that Lisa is back from the fairy land.
So what's real, what isnt... is the Fairy Land real? What is the story behind it?
I've never really read a 'mystery' before but this held me till the end wanting to know what the truth was... & in the end, I was still like "WHAT?" ...
but I will say, I enjoyed the read. It kept me on the edge of my seat - had me invested in the characters - had me wondering what was real, what wasnt... what the truth was...
What happened to Lisa... what did her cousin Evie have to do with it.... what was wrong with Lisa's dad.... was Sam involved.... & who are these people who keep coming in & leaving the Fairy King's symbol painted everywhere.... & does the Shadow Man really exist?
My rating: 3 skeins
