Despite the length of BTDBY, I really enjoyed it. It is much darker than the rest of the Diviners series and takes the reader down a history lesson of the United States. I love the historical fiction piece as this is the time period when people were trying to "cleanse" the US of immigrants and adding the Diviners to this prejudice feels perfect for the time period. The Diviners not only have to deal with helping rid New York of ghosts that are killing people but also with prejudice against their diversity. This was a great mirror of our immigration current situation and I LOVED it! I think the conversations that this book starts will be of great importance.
Happy Halloween! 🎃👻 What creepy Books are you reading today? I’m still reading Before The Devil Breaks You by Libba Bray and LOVING it! This third installment of the Diviners series is intense and much creepier than the other two. While the characters have remained the same people, their growth in this book is significant! While it’s definitely NOT a short creepy story, it’s not for the faint of heart!
