Review of Previous Books in the Wayward Children Series:
Synopsis: "When Jack left Eleanor West's School for Wayward Children she was carrying the body of her deliciously deranged sister--whom she had recently murdered in a fit of righteous justice--back to their home on the Moors.
But death in their adopted world isn't always as permanent as it is here, and when Jack is herself carried back into the school, it becomes clear that something has happened to her. Something terrible. Something of which only the maddest of scientists could conceive. Something only her friends are equipped to help her overcome.
Eleanor West's "No Quests" rule is about to be broken.
My Review: I think the fun part about this series is imagining which world you would do well or which would suit you best. Besides the Goblin Market, the Moors would probably suit me best. I have really enjoyed every time we have gotten to follow Jack and Jill's adventures on the other side of their door, and this was just a step up. I loved the expansion of the Moors setting and it was great to have so many of my favorite characters on a forbidden quest. As the Moors are a particularly dark world, it is a bit spooky and gruesome and may not be for everyone, but my Frankenstein loving heart really enjoyed it!
My Rating: I so enjoyed this book, while it may not be a favorite in the series, I still loved revisiting the Moors and also getting to see some favorite characters again. I give it a rating of Three Paws and a Stump Wag!
I received a complimentary copy of this book via Netgalley, the above is my honest review and opinion.
