Review: Mary Hades

Mary Hades Mary Hades by Sarah Dalton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After being physically and mentally scarred from a fire, Mary’s parents arrange for a holiday at a village in New Yorkshire to help her recover. She’s drawn to a local fairground worker who has a dark secret. She needs to uncover the murky history that has taken over Nettleby and stop the unusual deaths with the help of her dead best friend, and a gay goth couple.

Some parts were slow-moving, but overall a very good, eerie ghost story. Mary’s friend added a tone of humor amidst an otherwise dark narrative and I enjoyed her character. There was a light dusting of romance, but the ending was disappointing. The writing style was satisfying, fast paced and compelling overall.
