My Opinion and Rating 4.3

The stories were very interesting.  I wrote a paper about Novia Scotia when I was in Middle School. Although I never thought of the things that Ms. Reid in her series.  I am curious to see the next book in the story.  In series like this, I am always curious to see who shows up next in town to either die offer assistance or has a mysterious background.  I really encourage everyone to read the books, I am certain that whoever reads it will want to continue with the next book inthe series.
