When Jessica and her mother Lillian inherit an old plantation mansion in Louisiana, Lillian is thrilled as since she is presently trying to hold down two jobs to keep a roof over their heads and barely making ends meet. So off they go to Gilgamesh to start their new life, not knowing that Gilgamesh is a town corrupted by evil and stuck two hundred years in the past.
Jessica is plagued by strange dreams and even though she has never seen the house before knows exactly what they will find in it, she can even tell you what rooms are where and how the furniture is placed in each room.
Is Agatha Byrd a sweet old lady or part of the evil that plagues the house and surrounding town? Is her nephew Adam really the schizophrenic as he appears to be? Then there’s Serafine, the owner of the voodoo emporium. Can Lillian and Jessica really trust her? Last, but by no means least, there’s the young man that can only be seen at night and seems to have a fascination for Jessica.
I must point out that I usually don’t review anything that falls into the Young Adult genre. That being said I was really impressed with the way this book is written and if I had a daughter in her mid teens I’d have no objections to her reading this book. I loved Lillian and being a mother and having gone through the raising teens thing I really got her. The characters were believable in fact there were a few I had an intense dislike for almost as soon as they were introduced. There were a few areas where the editing could have been a little tighter, with repeated words and missing words. All in all very enjoyable.
