From the author of The Girl on the Train, Hawkins pulls you in with this thriller about a mother’s mysterious death in a small town and her estranged sister and teenage daughter reeling from the aftermath. Did she kill herself, was it an accident, or something much more sinister? It’s a whodunnit that keeps the reader guessing with its many unreliable narrators, and the suspenseful anxiety that builds throughout the story is powerfully released by the time you reach the final chapter. ~ Reviewed by Kirstin Swartz

I could not put this book down, and ended up finishing the whole trilogy within a two weeks span, THEN watched the first season of its TV adaption (which was also amazing).
An intelligent, adult supernatural love story with undertones of history, mythology and mystery, this first chapter in the thrilling All Souls trilogy surprises you with a wisdom as equally captivating as the creature world Harkness has built. I highly recommend this series to book lovers who are die hard vampire-love-story fans but wish for a more grown-up tale. ~ Reviewed by Kirstin Swartz
