User Review  - Breony - LibraryThing

A bit hard to get into at the beginning with a lot of new language in this fictitious town of wormwood. The main character seems a bit too cynical of the place without reason. But the story builds well and I was hooked by the end. Themes are relatively modest. Read full review
