I've already read the first book in this series and I just started reading the second book last night. There's a third book in this series with an expected release date sometime in 2019. I'm not very far into the second book yet but it's starting off pretty good so far. Has anyone else read any of these books?
After escaping a harsh school where punishment was the lesson of the day, seventeen-year-old Louisa Ditton is thrilled to find employment as a maid at a boarding house. But soon after her arrival at Coldthistle House, Louisa begins to realize that the house’s mysterious owner, Mr. Morningside, is providing much more than lodging for his guests. Far from a place of rest, the house is a place of judgment, and Mr. Morningside and his unusual staff are meant to execute their own justice on those who are past being saved.
Louisa begins to fear for a young man named Lee who is not like the other guests. He is charismatic and kind, and Louisa knows that it may be up to her to save him from an untimely judgment. But in this house of distortions and lies, how can Louisa be sure whom to trust?
In this second book of Madeleine Roux’s expansive gothic horror series, illustrations from artist Iris Compiet and chilling photographs help bring to life a world where the line between monsters and men is ghostly thin.
After the frightful events of last autumn, seventeen-year-old Louisa Ditton has settled into her role as a maid at Coldthistle House, but she has not settled into what that means for her humanity.
As Louisa struggles to figure out whether she is worthy of redemption, the devilish Mr. Morningside plans a fete— one that will bring new guests to Coldthistle House. From wicked humans to Upworlders, angelic beings who look down upon Mr. Morningside’s monstrous staff, all are armed with their own brand of self-righteous justice.
Even a man claiming to be Louisa’s father has a role to play, though what his true motive is, Louisa cannot tell. The conflicts will eventually come to a head on the grounds of Coldthistle House—and the stakes include Louisa’s very soul.
I finished reading the second me the other day and I wanted to post back that I liked it. It leaves it open for another book (which I've found out there is another book in this series that is suppose to come out in 2019). I'm anxious for the new novel to come out now because there is a certain plot in the second one that was never finished in this novel that they are going to have to finish in the next book. I am just anxious to see how they explain that in the next book is all.
Okay, the third book came out in June but I ended up getting it for my birthday in July. I began reading the book last night so I'm only a couple of chapters in so far. It's going pretty good so far but I'll have to let you know more when I've finished it.
Is anyone else reading these books? I'm curious to see what others think of them...
