Just got it out. :)
There are losses we don't move past, no matter how hard we try. Some wounds, once inflicted, bleed forever underneath the skin. All we can do is learn to live with them.

Where are you in the book? I have read more than half if it and can't stop reading. It is just as good as the first one.

Ok, I finished it and loved it! I hope there will be another book in the series!

I'm a few chapters in...


I was a tiny bit worried that this one wouldn't be as good as the first one. I shouldn't have worried. :lol:

And wow, it started out quickly in this one. Very good so far!

I've read some more...
I did not see that coming, though I feel like I should've! (Mirror, basement, board.)

@gali

I finished it! (Finally, apparently I'm still a little slumpy. :( )
I'm thinking this will wind up being a trilogy, maybe with the third book focusing mostly on Brian.

I loved this one. It worked so well. Love, love, LOVE!

Need more Katherine Arden books. Lots more.

I am glad you enjoyed it. :)

Have you suspected the ghost-hunter?

A third book focusing on Brian will be great! I wonder if the parents of the two girls will be married. It seems likely.

I loved it too and hope she will write more books!

I definitely suspected him, but did not think...that. I should of...it just makes sense...but I didn't. :lol:

Yes, I didn't think it was him as well.

The third one (I really hope there's a third one!) will have to twist somehow. We'll be expecting him...
