My Thoughts on the Book
The Haunting of Alaizabel Cray is one of those books that sucks you right in and make you stay there. The plot is fast paced and engaging and I really enjoyed the author's writing style. The book has some amazing descriptions that makes you feel like you "see" what the characters see. Speaking of characters, they are complex and interesting. I really liked Alaizabel, Cathaline and Thaniel and I ended up rooting for them throughout the book.
Overall, The Haunting of Alaizabel Cray was a fun read and I highly recommend it.
