Book Review: Haunting Violet By Alyxandra Harvey


Name: Haunting Violet
Author: Alyxandra Harvey
Publisher: Bloomsbury

Summary: Violet Willoughby doesn't believe in ghosts, especially since her mother has worked as a fraudulent medium for a decade. Violet has taken part in enough of her mother's tricks to feel more than a little jaded about anyhting supernatural.

The ghosts, however, believe in Violet and she's been seeing them everywhere. One ghost in particular needs Violet to use her emerging gift to solve her murder . . . and prevent the ghost's twin sister from suffering the same fate.


Review: Haunting violet. Where do I begin to describe this awesome haunting novel. Bloomsbury sent me this novel and from start to end I fell in love with this story. I love that its a periodic romance/thriller. The fact that its set in 18th century London makes it so much more atmospheric.

The plot is amazing, Dramatic twists, turns, mysterious, haunting moments. The pace was amazing the tone was dramatic and energetic. It wasn't to rushed and the characters were so believable and you can defiantly relate to them and the plot is something I have never come across.

The characters in this novel are amazing. We have Violet the strong minded girl who's being haunted by a ghost who needs her help. The scenes between Violet and Rowena the ghost are quite scary but so awesome you just wonder what happen next with each page and each chapter. Colin. The awesome “butler” for Violet and her Mother. Hes from Ireland and hes a very loveable character. The theirs Elizabeth who is violets best friend who is defiantly a funny character you will defiantly fall in love with. Also there are many more characters in this novel I would be here all day if I talked about them all but I will say this. If you like mysterious, nice, challenging, attractive funny characters then this is the book for you.

I can tell Alyxandra has done her research from the clothing, words said, area and surroundings. I think its important the author gets this right otherwise it wont be effect but Alyxandra gets it right with every word written I can see why the awesome people at Bloomsbury published it. Haunting Violet. Is a beautiful, Scary, Atmospheric, Romantic thriller that pulls you in from beginning to end. Truly amazing! Buy this novel!
