#BookReview for The Darkest Veil by Catherine Cavendish #TheDarkestVeil @Cat_Cavendish @CrossroadPress

We are The Thirteen. We are One

4 Yarborough Drive looked like any other late 19th century English townhouse. Alice Lorrimer feels safe and welcomed there, but soon discovers all is not as it appears to be. One of her housemates flees the house in terror. Another disappears and never returns.

Then there are the sounds of a woman wailing, strange shadows and mists, and the appearance of the long-dead Josiah Underwood who founded a coven there many years earlier.

The house is infested with his evil, and Alice and her friends are about to discover who The Thirteen really are.



I had read a previous book by this author and loved it – so when I was offered the opportunity to read this book, the latest novella out I jumped at the chance!

I read the book over two nights and I loved it – it was creepy in all the right places and I guessed the ending in part but that did not affect my enjoyment at all.  I thought that the plot was very well developed, the setting and location was excellent – she really brought it to life for me and her writing style was excellent.

I thought that the characters were really well developed and I loved their interaction as the story progressed, they had a mix of personalities and I think that helped carry the story so well.

It is 4.5 stars from me for this one rounded up to 5 stars for Goodreads and Amazon – I definitely need to look to read her back catalogue too now!!  Very highly recommended!!
