My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This well-crafted debut novel of Mylo Carbia is a definite must-read! Just a few pages in and I can’t put it down. The story shows the thin line between justice and revenge, and Carbia did it in one sweep.

The plot is very impressive, Ava wanted revenge, but you’ll never know when she’ll strike and how she’ll do it. I can’t help but cringed and be amazed at the same time, on how descriptive and accurate the scenes – as if I’m watching a movie in my head.

I’m looking forward to reading more of Carbia’s writing. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants a thrilling novel packed with unpredictable scenes and plot twists that will keep you on edge.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I received this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP or Lovers of Paranormal)

Stars: 3.5

First off, this novel is longer than I expected. In paperback, it may be 322 pages, but for ebook it is actually 766 pages. I’ll start off with the story. It is indeed one of kind, as it revolves around Amanda’s ghost (w/c is a 3-month old baby) and her ability to control the weather through her painted room.

The twists and turns in the story was developed when I’m actually in the last quarter of the book and it will really keep you on your toes. The first half of the book consists of every character’s life story, particularly Katie and Bert. This I think makes this novel longer than necessary. I also skipped some parts pertaining to meteorology since I think it’s very technical, especially for a reader who’s not into it.

I would recommend this to everyone who loves paranormal with the twist of crime and suspense. This may be a long read, but the plot and the climax are worth it.
