3.5 starsIn the imaginary world of mediumship this Victorian young adult mystery will entertain well enough to satisfy many fans of the genre. There are some misses on the portrayal of medium abilities, but one can easily overlook and enjoy the fictional tale. At times, the speech wanes from the authenticity of the time period for example, "Usually she began her sales spiel before the door had fully opened…," which detracts from the overall set building of the story. The dialogue just felt too modern in places making it less genuine. Nevertheless, the story has got a demon on the loose, a brooding male, danger and mystery. What's not to like? The ending leaves the reader hanging, but since this is a series I'm trusting that Emily will face Jacob again and some resolution will be accomplished.
