Into the worm's hole
Hey! I thought I would review Blackbrooke by Emma Silver. Okay so if you like horror than you will like this book. This is actually my first time reading a horrorish type novel because I'm not really into horror stuff, but I liked the little blurb and decided to give it a try. Some parts were more intense than others, but I held my own pretty well while reading this.
Okay so the main character is Liberty along with some of her friends like Gemma, Cassius, and other characters that have slipped my mind at the moment. Liberty is one of my all time favorite characters because she's feisty and doesn't take no for an answer. She also goes through a lot of shit in this book, and in the end you feel super bad for her. I was literally crying. Also Cassius is a really good character. He is also in my top favorite characters list. (I'll have to make a list of my favorites characters males and females.) Cassius plays a really important role in the book and he's there for Liberty when she really needs him.
In this book you will find romance, heebie jeebies, and secrets that will make you want to spit out your drink. Crits are the heebie jeebies that I was talking about, and they sent shivers down my spine. They are just super creepy and they made my heart kind of race a little bit. I'm a chicken okay, I am also really jumpy that's why I tend to stay away from the horror type stories. Romance is kind of a big deal because anyone under eighteen isn't really supposed to have a girlfriend or boyfriend because of the Crits. They will kill you. Also if you want to commit side ways (suicide) all you have to do is walk out your front door at night and the Crits will take care of the rest.
I won this book off of Emma Silver's blog and it took a few weeks to get to me because it was coming all the way from Britain. When I did get it, it took me two days to read it. It held my attention all the way through. I am dying to get my hands on the next book. If it is anything like the first book I know I'll love it.
Emma I loved it and can't wait to see what else happens to Liberty and her friends.
