The Casquette Girls by Alys Arden

Book Review #42

* I received this book in an exchange for an honest review.  

My rating: 2.5/5

Goodreads Description 

Seven girls tied by time.

Five powers that bind.

One curse to lock the horror away.

One attic to keep the monsters at bay.

After the storm of the century rips apart New Orleans, sixteen-year-old Adele Le Moyne wants nothing more than her now silent city to return to normal. But with home resembling a war zone, a parish-wide curfew, and mysterious new faces lurking in the abandoned French Quarter, normal needs a new definition. 

As the city murder rate soars, Adele finds herself tangled in a web of magic that weaves back to her own ancestors. Caught in a hurricane of myths and monsters, who can she trust when everyone has a secret and keeping them can mean life or death? Unless . . . you’re immortal. 

My Review

  • I did not enjoy this book. At all. 
  • It was dreadful and devastating to say the least. My thoughts are constantly thinking – when is it ever going to end?
  • Don’t get me wrong, the plotline is really cool and all but I didn’t enjoy it. 
  • And all the characters are unique and fitting to the whole story. 
  • I would never have known about the small city of New Orleans and the Casquette girls if I have never read the book. Its a compilation of history and fantasy. 
  • Not recommended.
