This debut is haunting. (I recognize right, sign all the ghost word play heres currently). The setting and the way Waters introduces these climatic aspects were stunning. I needed to stop reading this book prior to bed y’ all. It was a mix of, “small town secrets and handshakes” satisfies “ghosts, hauntings, and also power”. In addition to that Seas had the ability to weave songs into the eerieness in a wonderful means. I LIKED the writing style!
It was virtually like supernatural with an edge. And Also Ghost Timber Song likewise asked visitors what would we do if we can bring all of it back. If we can do the impossible.

The Southern Gothic visual, which is an American continuation of the Gothic fiction seen in traditional stories like Jane Eyre, is just one of my preferred appearances to review, and also Ghost Wood Track did not let down. I loved the old, haunted timbers where ghosts whispered between the branches.

It is regrettable the most frustrating part of the book was the magic. Seas builds the stress concerning the hazardous past of Shady’s dad’s fiddle as well as the strange shadow guy and also his hordes of killer wasps, yet when all is revealed in the 2nd fifty percent of the book, I really felt exceptionally underwhelmed as well as confused as to why this wonderful, ghost-summoning fiddle existed to begin with. There was no resolution with the monstrous darkness guy either, in addition to for several various other ghosts we met along the road. For being the primary hook of Ghost Timber Track, I want the magic system as well as its tradition were much more fleshed out, instead of being fancy story devices.
