Throwback Thursday: Fiendish by Brenna Yovanoff

Fiendish

Hardcover, 341 pages

This cover really grabbed my attention when it was first released, but I didn’t get around to picking it up until my Secret Sister sent it in my October box.  I read it the week of Halloween, which was perfect timing with the spooky mystery and setting.

I did enjoy the story, but I may have hyped it up in my mind too much as I was mildly disappointed the whole time I was reading it.  The characters didn’t grab me like they usually do.  And I am all about following favorite characters that speak to me.  They were quirky and interesting though.  And I feel like this book will do very well in other people’s hands and libraries.
If you want something a spooky and mysterious, give this one a shot 🙂

Summary:

Clementine DeVore spent ten years trapped in a cellar, pinned down by willow roots, silenced and forgotten.

Now she’s out and determined to uncover who put her in that cellar and why. 

When Clementine was a child, dangerous and inexplicable things started happening in New South Bend. The townsfolk blamed the fiendish people out in the Willows and burned their homes to the ground. But magic kept Clementine alive, walled up in the cellar for ten years, until a boy named Fisher sets her free. Back in the world, Clementine sets out to discover what happened all those years ago. But the truth gets muddled in her dangerous attraction to Fisher, the politics of New South Bend, and the Hollow, a fickle and terrifying place that seems increasingly temperamental ever since Clementine reemerged.
