I had not seen the number of pages before I started the book. It is not a thing I really do anymore, since kindle obligingly tells me how much reading time is left (and is right some of the time). I bring this point up because I thought that it was wrong in its assumption, given the ambience that was building up. Strangely enough, I did finish it in one sitting. As it was a book that had been on a virtual shelf, I had to wonder why I had not just picked it up much earlier!
Since the book is a novella, I will not drag this review much longer than the original text.
The plot is straightforward enough. We have a woman who has come to clear out her grandmother’s house after her demise. This is difficult because her grandmother was a magician as well as a hoarder making the entire process unique. What she finds in the hidden depths involves a little faith in the paranormal/science fiction, even though this would not count as a horror book.
It was an easy read and did its job well in describing the situation in an immersive manner. I might have liked it even more had it been slightly more convoluted/longer.
I received an ARC thanks to Netgalley and the publishers but the review is entirely based on my own reading experience.
