However, as a reader, I was expecting more details. I never did learn exactly how or why Lynette had managed to find Shawn, why he was the one she choose, nor did I learn what she and her master were going to do if they had succeeded in their plan, or even what her master was. Also, it was not clear how Anne helped to destroy Lynette. The cats were similarly obtuse, appearing to make cryptic remarks and utter dire warnings before vanishing again. Then again, that’s what cats do, so perhaps I should instead applaud West for portraying them so well.
Halloween, 1918. An old house by the sea hides a variety of secrets none more terrifying than the event that took place nearly one hundred years before. Thought to be haunted, no one dares to go inside except for one Anne Sullivan; young vampire eager to understand the world around her. But what starts out as a simple excursion of academic proportions quickly escalates to something more sinister. With only a strange group of cats as companions, Anne must determine what’s happened in that aged house before it’s too late.
