A small town, a terrible tragedy, a mysterious stranger, drowned girls and a woman in white.
It is all in the mix in the first of The Asylum Saga. While overall I thought this was an enjoyable read, though it felt very Young Adult, there were some things that bothered me. Girls are being found dead, and it happens multiple times and even though they were considered suicides individually, people don’t start to connect the dots. And then <spoiler> they find out it has happened also some decades before and no-one of the main characters is even aware of this. Or thinks it a very weird coincidences </spoiler> .
The bad-guy I saw coming from miles away and also the unnecessarily ass-holey ex-boyfriend could have been left out without any problems. The ending I quite liked except for the fact that it is a mega cliffhanger and I will have to read the second book to find some kind of closure.
Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
