Briseis has a gift: with a single touch she can grow plants from tiny seeds to rich blooms.

When Briseis’s aunt dies and wills her a dilapidated estate in rural New York, Bri and her parents hope that surrounded by plants and flowers, she will finally learn to control her gift. But their new home is sinister in ways they never expected-it comes with a mysterious set of instructions, a walled garden filled with the deadliest botanicals in the world, and generations of secrets. There is more to Bri’s sudden inheritance than she could have imagined, and she is determined to uncover it.

From the bestselling author of Cinderella Is Dead comes an enchanting story about a young woman with the power to conquer the dark forces descending around her. (Amazon)

First things first, this book has a beautiful cover.

This book was amazing. Slow start, but it picked up quite fast. This book was also very modern with all the modern references which works perfectly in the YA world. I love the twist on Greek mythology and making it more modern.

This book takes place in New York. Bri is trying to learn how to use her gift. Bri begins to uncover things she didn’t know when they decide to move to a more rural part of New York when mysterious things begin to happen and strangers begin to pop up.

I can’t wait for the second book the release because I really enjoyed this one.

My Rating:

4 star
