This book tricked me, or rather the summary did. I went in expecting a supernatural story of woods that could contain monsters etc. But that wasn't what I got. I think this book had the Best first chapter and I was hyped from the get go. It was atmospheric, tense, mysterious. I loved it. But as the book went on and I became more and more aware that the monsters were people and there were no ghosts to be found, that lowered the rating for me.

That is to say! If you're looking for a mysterious story wrapped inside an even more mysterious village in the woods, this book is for you! I loved how it was written, I thought the book kept it's tension well paced and I was genuinely surprised by the twists and turns in it by the end! And while you may not root for any particular character, I thought they were well written!

3 Stars for me, but I'm sure other people will love this book.

This one really gripped me and wouldn't let go until I finished. It wasn't the plot twists or reveals that made it interesting, though those were fun and I definitely enjoyed them. I think the draw was in the character work and the themes going on here. It was a more quiet, meditative book on chosen community, a sense of self, and how we let fear and loss define us. And I was so pleased by the ending, even though I wasn't expecting it, that I can't give this one any less than 5 stars.

Travis Wren is hired by the family of a missing novelist, Maggie St. Clair, to find her. His quest takes him to a remote wilderness commune, Pastoral, where the inhabitants believe they are being protected from a plague because of their isolation from the rest of the world. The storyline focuses on a married couple Theo and Calla, and Calla’s blind sister Bee, who is in love with Levi, the leader of Pastoral. When the newborn baby of a commune member becomes ill, everything begins to unravel, as some think outside help is necessary and others are dead-set against it. Ugly secrets and lies turn the once-tranquil Pastoral into a nightmare. With their belief systems challenged, Calla, Bee, and Theo are forced to make difficult decisions. The prose is sometimes flat, but the imaginative story, which almost reads like a dark fairy tale, was interesting enough to hold my attention throughout.… (més)

Absolutely loved this book, Thrilling, confusing and exciting. Tried my hand at solving the mystery but was caught off guard by the twist. Really kick-started my venture into psychological thrillers.
