Description from Amazon
The town of Baile seems to be just a small town with ordinary people until Teagan O’Brien opens an unusual candy shop. Something ancient and buried begins to awaken in the people when they consume his sweets. They remember a life they had long ago left behind becoming their true selves, and a maleficence awakens that had been locked away in forgotten memories. Out of those memories comes the truth of what brought them to the world of humans and the path back to the place they call home. The path to their salvation depends on three of their human-born children, who are thrust into a future of uncertainty as each one discovers the truth behind the people of Baile and the secrets locked within their own bodies and Only these three have the ability to overcome the evil that threatens to corrupt and dominate every living creature, to save not only their kind, but humanity itself.
Overall Feedback: This is an absolute do not miss, if you are looking to read at least one book this month, this is the one you should get. I was captivated slightly after the first chapter throughout. Finnell has obvious talent and I am looking forward to more works from this author.
Point of View: A unique perspective from the residents of the weirdest town you will ever visit. A bit confusing but fleshes out through the plot.
Voice: The author does well to compel the reader through this one especially the first two or three chapters.
Character Development: If you are only interested in character development please pass this one as this one is more about plot than characters.
Plot: This is where Finnell shines the most. Throughout the book the plot is what drives you to read more and more and never give up.
Dialogue: Sometimes confusing and stilted but again the plot makes up for it.
Pacing: After the first two chapters you will fly through the pages with ease.
Setting: Haven, think Haven but with more of the weird. We know and are afraid of this town. Baile is twice as weird and somewhere out there.
Continuity: A few minor misses but nothing that completely pulls you out of the story.
