This book was everything gothic and gory and delusionally romantic. It can feel like this book doesn't have a plot, especially compared to other fantasy novels that might focus on quests or wars but I really enjoyed the eerie nature of this book and just following the girls around until the twist is revealed at the end. I do think that some of the romantic details could have been flushed out better, especially when it comes to Lisavet's emotions, to have better continuity for the story as a whole. The imagery was haunting and creepy- just the way I like it. Definitely a good October read for anyone into gothic sapphic bloodlust.
