The novel's story revolves around a girl named Analia who has been kept from the truth about her family by her uncle. She struggles to move on hence decides to know who her parents were, on her journey of seeking the truth, her paths are crossed with a guy named Evans who tries to get close to her while she reveals a curse which has been haunting her family.

I liked the deep diary entries in novel which were very much relatable and the blend of horror, fantasy and love had me in!

This book is a mix of two genres; fiction and horror that brews a lot of emotions altogether.
It’s a story of a girl who lives with her uncle and wants to know more of her parents. Because of this wish of hers, she goes through a lot.

One of the best things about the book is that the characters have the habit of writing diaries.
Moreover, it is quite a light read with appropriate amount of suspense and character building.

I would highly recommending this blend of love, relationships and supernatural powers.

It is a story continued from secrets of spring which revolves around a teenage girl named Analia who faces a lot of difficulties in her life such as being betrayed by her very own people.
When I was reading this book I was imagining everything, it was like I'm watching this story live. The book has a bit of horror, suspense and lot of other feelings.
At some places very deep lines and quotes are used which reached my soul. Kuddos to Lareb for writing such a heartwrenching story.

Do not grieve my muse, I keep searching for you in stars.

This story revolves around a young girl, raised by her uncle who has made a conscious decision to never share a word with her about who her parents were or even what they looked like, except that they were dead. He does all this, presumably to save her from evils that may come from this knowledge.

This book is a blend of multiple genres including mystery of the unknown, a good measure of supernatural, and a whole lot of bitter sweet emotions. It's fast and gripping and I finished it in one setting. The diary entries by the main character were my favorite part of the story, they were so poetic and heart rending. All the emotions were described to near perfection in limited words, especially the ending.

Many compliments and thanks to the author @ @ for publishing her second novel at just 17 years of age and providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
