When Élan, the supernatural disbeliever, and Ramsey, the believer, get thrown together to search for Élan’s mother who has gone missing, it makes for an interesting discussion between the two characters as to what their beliefs are and the reasoning behind them. Although Élan is an unbeliever and has evidence to prove most physic and supernatural things are unreal, she has her own reasons for wishing this and still remains skeptical that the supernatural may be real.
I really enjoyed this story - the writing was quick paced and aspects of the story were very gory. The scare factor of this book for me was mild, I was never creeped out or hiding behind the duvet or a pillow but I didn't mind that because the goriness and unraveling of the story had me absorbed and wanting to know what might be hinted at next. There was certainly a strong hint at what might be in Ramsey’s future near the end which makes me very intrigued.
Overall this was a well-written and exciting mild horror/supernatural/mystery story. I didn't really warm to the main characters Élan or Ramsey but I also didn't hate them either. I enjoyed the Egyptian setting and the cultural and language elements shared within this book. If you’re looking for a mild horror book with supernatural elements then this is right up your street! See if you can guess what the outcome of the story is before the end - I didn't guess correctly :-)
