Cate Tiernan did a great job with the split perspective of the two girls, I feel like the things I write could never live up to her work. All of this paired with the fact that she got a good amount of her witch facts right made the book very attractive to me.
There were some funny moments to it as well, one of my favorites was the emotionless rake. Even though the twins keep going through bad things the book doesn’t seem overbearingly tragic for a mystery.
I’m not quite so fond of the strict outline for good and evil as I prefer to decide for myself who I’ll stick with and root for. This book makes that a bit difficult but even a couple of the “bad guys” won me over with their back stories. And some of them won my complete dislike (meant in the best way possible).
As for the girls, I don’t know if I’d really think of them as heroes in real life but I’d love to be their friend! They both seemed like normal teenage girls, not fake or made up like some characters.
