"Fans of The Raven Boys and Stranger Things rejoice: This is your new obsession." --Claire Legrand, New York Times best-selling author of Furyborn After the death of her sister, seventeen-year-old Violet Saunders finds herself dragged to Four Paths, New York. Violet may be a newcomer, but she soon learns her mother isn't: They belong to one of the revered founding families of the town, where stone bells hang above every doorway and danger lurks in the depths of the woods. Justin Hawthorne's bloodline has protected Four Paths for generations from the Gray -- a lifeless dimension that imprisons a brutal monster. After Justin fails to inherit his family's powers, his mother is determined to keep this humiliation a secret. But Justin can't let go of the future he was promised and the town he swore to protect. Ever since Harper Carlisle lost her hand to an accident that left her stranded in the Gray for days, she has vowed revenge on the person who abandoned her: Justin Hawthorne. There are ripples of dissent in Four Paths, and Harper seizes an opportunity to take down the Hawthornes and change her destiny -- to what extent, even she doesn't yet know. The Gray is growing stronger every day, and its victims are piling up. When Violet accidentally unleashes the monster, all three must band together with the other Founders to unearth the dark truths behind their families' abilities...before the Gray devours them all.… (mais)

Really good, I like the characters, but did not love them, but i loved the setting family/small town drama in this book. ( )

teen fiction with incidentally bisexual characters (suspense/horror--supernatural powers and dark magic in modern New England)
This was a fun story with lots of creepy details but not too scary overall (in that I could go to sleep afterwards without fearing the plot would leak into my dreams, which is fine by me). The frequency of bisexual relationships and crushes (2 of the 4 teens and even some of the parents) feels like more of a writer's convenience, since it means that any combinations among the group can be shipped and re-shipped in the upcoming sequel(s). That said, I don't think I care enough about these characters to read the sequel, but I did rip through the ending to see how all their immediate situations "resolved." ( )

3.5!

This was really solid but didn't have quite enough that made it stand out to me so I won't be reviewing. I enjoyed the different groups of magic and the overall emotional maturity of the book though. ( )

Could I give a book one million stars? If yes, then it would be to this one. I mean I read a fair bit of YA now, and I can't see this not being a "new classic." One of the reasons I was so bummed about not getting my reviews typed up faster was that I missed the release day. In any event, you can buy it or borrow it now. Like, put a hold on it now before the list is miles long.

This story is dark, lyrical, slightly depressing and beautiful all at once. It's witchy and full of horror so skip it if you aren't at all ready for a goth type mood. It very much reminds me of Riverdale, Twin Peaks, Stranger Things. You get the idea.


The story has all my favorite plot points: an old family curse, secrets, kids with powers, and a monster. It has new things I like too: LGBTQ characters, and smart boy and girl teens. Nothing wrong with some smarticle particles.



I'd hand this off to any high school aged kid. Also, yes it's book one, so we should get some solution for Isaac. ( )
