Yet when she wakes the next morning, alone and unable to bring herself to leave, Amethyst comes face to face with unexpected twists and turns - like Alfred, the creepy gardener; Avery, the handsome but secretive neighbor; and a little girl who keeps appearing and vanishing within the house.
As Amethyst searches for the Blooms and tries to unravel the truth, her connection to the house only grows stronger. Will she be able to break free of the house's allure, or will its secrets keep her trapped forever?

Have Low Expectations
Despite my rating, I honestly don't regret listening to this novel, mostly because I knew what I was getting myself into. Don't get me wrong, I love Marzia and her channel, that's why I bought this book in the first place, but I didn't go ahead and assume she'd be the greatest writer-- that would have been a pleasant surprise! The book was well translated and delivers the creepy, yet delicate vibe, that Marzia tends to lean towards in her vlogs. However... the story fell short and felt a bit drawn-out despite already being short. I only stuck around to hear the all-too-predictable ending. I'll give her credit for writing though! On a side not, I thought the narrator's voice was perfect for the role.
Nothing I didn't expect. I sort of figured out halfway through the story.
Strangely enough... Nothing stuck with me.
tl;dr -- An interesting premise, but a boring execution. Felt longer than it actually is.
