A girl discovers a family secret and a past full of magic that could both save her and put her in mortal danger in this suspenseful novel that’s perfect for fans of Katie Alender and Natasha Preston.
All sixteen-year-old Heather MacNair wants is to feel normal, to shed the intense paranoia she’s worn all year like a scratchy sweater. After her compulsion to self-harm came to light, Heather was kept under her doctor’s watchful eye. Her family thinks she’s better—and there’s nothing she wants more than for that to be true. She still can’t believe she’s allowed to spend her summer vacation as she always does: at her aunt’s home in Scotland, where she has lots of happy memories. Far away from all her problems save one: she can’t stop carving the Celtic knot that haunts her dreams into her skin.
Good friends and boys with Scottish accents can cure almost anything…except nightmares. Heather can’t stop dreaming about two sisters from centuries ago, twins Prudence and Primrose, who somehow seem tied to her own life. Their presence lurks just beneath the surface of her consciousness, sending ripples through what should be a peaceful summer. The twins might hold the key to putting Heather’s soul at rest…or they could slice her future deeper than any knife.
Though the names Katie Alender and Natasha Preston don't mean anything to me, this book really intrigues me. It seems like Lunetta is taking a new spin on this the stereotypical witch plot. I love a little bit of originality! I am worried that Lunetta will make witchery an excuse for self harm. This book definitely has a thriller type of feel to it; I'm kind of looking forward to being creeped out! Plus, I can't help but sing in my head Bad Blood by Taylor Swift whenever I see this book! Am I the only one? :)
Are you looking forward to Bad Blood?
Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you soon with another post!
