Book Review: The Crimson Key
Blurb from Goodreads:
"The truth can be deadly.
Brylee Branson’s best friend and boyfriend have fallen victim to a horrible curse that haunts her home. With the witches who cast it dead she has no choice but to rely on the ghosts inside the Brown house to help her find a cure. But time is not on her side, because Lynley's illness is spreading rapidly.
Confused and scared, seventeen-year-old Brylee must confront a new ghost in the house she has never spoken to before. This spirit is not a Brown relative and makes no promises to help them … unless she can re-unite her with a loved one.
The fate of those she loves now rests on her. Can Brylee put the pieces of this puzzle together in time to save them? Or will the Brown house claim another victim?
The Visitor’s Series continues to scare and entice its readers with this gripping second book."
With the way that book one ended, I absolutely couldn't wait to start reading book 2. Brylee's world is practically falling apart, and she has to find a way to make it all right. There's ghosts, and witches, and a nasty curse. Her best friend and boyfriend are in serious trouble - "it's" going to hit the fan!
How much do I love Christy Sloat's books? This much! ::holds out arms wide:: She is a wonderful storyteller, making the paranormal vivid and tension-building. I was lucky enough to be given an advanced reader copy of the third book, which I am currently devouring. I can't get enough!
If you love YA, and if you dabble in the paranormal, this series is a must-read for you!
