Review: The Diviners

Buy The Diviners here.


Evie O'Neill has been exiled from her boring old hometown and shipped off to the bustling streets of New York City--and she is pos-i-toot-ly thrilled. New York is the city of speakeasies, shopping, and movie palaces! Soon enough, Evie is running with glamorous Ziegfield girls and rakish pickpockets. The only catch is Evie has to live with her Uncle Will, curator of The Museum of American Folklore, Superstition, and the Occult--also known as "The Museum of the Creepy Crawlies."

When a rash of occult-based murders comes to light, Evie and her uncle are right in the thick of the investigation. And through it all, Evie has a secret: a mysterious power that could help catch the killer--if he doesn't catch her first.
This book is the perfect book to spend a few days completely lost in.  The language (which will get stuck in your head and you will accidentally try to use in your daily life), the vibrant city, the secrets and characters and intricate plot...  You'll fall down the glitzy and dangerous rabbit hole of Evie's world and not want to come out.  Libba Bray once again creates an amazingly rich, enchanting atmosphere for an engaging story that will have you hooked until the very last page.  This is another one of those books that I will probably get in trouble for not shutting up about, but I don't care.  I think it's the elephant's eyebrows!

Until next time, happy reading!
