    Trama accattivante, veste grafica curata nei minimi particolari come presentazione direi che pi di cos non si poteva proprio fare Peccato che la storia langue un po Intendiamoci, come inizio il libro non niente male, l atmosfera cupa e vittoriana favolosa e rende bene Per date le credenziali del primo capitolo, che fa salire la curiosit a mille, mi aspettavo i fuochi d artificio XD Invece la narrazione, dopo aver raggiunto il suo picco si affloscia un po e diventa mediocre Le risoluzioni un po t [...]

    Una storia dark per ragazzi che ricorda a tutti che non dobbiamo rimanere aggrappati al passato, ma bisogna vivere il presente.Molto scorrevole e ci sono indizi misteriosi ben seminati fino alla fine che incuriosiscono nella lettura Piacevole.
