Nishita, King Edward VI Camp Hill School for Girls

A Skinful of Shadows

This book wasn't like the genre that I'd normally prefer to read but I do think it persuaded me to be more open to other books like it. The mix of themes throughout the novel certainly kept my attention; from old English history to engaging stories of ghosts, this book certainly kept me engaged.

Makepeace and James took me on a very enjoyable journey filled with sudden plot twists and surprises. Seeing how one person could possess so many different personalities really helped this book hit the top, even if the start of the book was slightly slow.

Hardinge did a great job of relating a character's personality to the setting they're in and the people they meet.

I would definitely recommend this book and if you love fantasy and history, you won't regret picking it up.
