My Review Summary: A gripping Christmas read which is full of suspense.


A long-dead child.An artist who paints the fae.An ancient estate on a blood-filled land.
The commission was close to Amelia’s dream: a cosy cottage in Donegal over Christmas and the chance to paint the beautiful Glenveagh estate. But when the weather closes in and the country shuts down, a ritual begins – one that traps Amelia in its circles of magic.

Stranded in a place where iron is power, her heart can no longer be trusted and the land itself is a weapon, Amelia’s survival depends on unravelling the truth of a decades-old death. Even if it draws the same ancient danger to herself.


I loved this book. I was after something Christmassy to read, but not the typical romance/see the error of your ways type storyline, and this book popped up on Random Things Tours as a December Tour. I jumped at the chance to read it and I am glad that I did.

The writing had me gripped right from the start. It was easy to read and pulled me in straight away. It was quite a scary read at times, full of suspense and with cliff hangers at the end of every chapter!

The chapters interestingly had titles which gave you an idea of what the next part of the story was going to entail.  I think that this added to the suspense and the tension as whilst you were forewarned, you still didn’t quite know where the chapter was going to take you!

Each chapter was short and focussed on either an individual character or a couple of characters to get their view on what was happening to them in that moment. It was an excellent way to gradually piece together the story, whilst creating the little cliff hangers which eventually all came together at the end of the book. It made you want to keep reading and I was constantly on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next! 

I liked the characters and the way that you couldn’t quite trust any of them. At some points during the book you were on their side then something happened to make you question them! All of them had their own secrets, which as they gradually unfolded you weren’t sure who to trust. At the end of the book I was still left puzzled over Robert and his true intentions. 

The settings in this book were brilliant, Christmassy and scary all at the same time. I loved the way that the weather echoed what was going on and really added to the fear that the characters (and subsequently you as the reader) felt! What was also clever was that the settings were only lightly described, and it was actually the conversation and actions of the characters in that setting that truly immersed you and really brought the story to life.

At the end of the story was an epilogue so you got to have a sneak peek into what their future held. I sometimes feel that a story isn’t quite finished without one so this was a nice bonus to end the story on.

Overall I loved the suspense, the characters, the settings and the way that it was written. I highly recommend reading this book especially if you are a fan of fantasy and thriller.

⭐Rated 5/5⭐
