Book Review- Belladonna

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/ 5 stars

RELEASE DATE August 23, 2022


A girl confronts Death—and her own deathly powers—in this Gothic-infused, romantic young adult fantasy.

Nineteen-year-old Signa Farrow, orphaned as a baby, has been raised by a string of guardians, each more interested in her wealth than her well-being—and each has met an untimely end. Her last remaining relatives are the Hawthornes, an eccentric family living at the glittering and gloomy estate of Thorn Grove. Thorn Grove’s patriarch, Elijah, mourns his late wife, Lillian, through wild parties and drink, while eldest son Percy grapples for control of the family’s waning reputation and daughter Blythe suffers from the same mysterious illness that killed her mother. And when Lillian’s spirit confronts Signa and claims she was poisoned, Signa realizes that Blythe could be next to die.

Signa’s best chance of uncovering the culprit and solving Lillian’s murder is an alliance with Death himself—the very man she hates most. And Death, that fascinating, dangerous shadow who has never been far from her side, shows her that their connection may be more powerful than she ever dared imagine.

My Thoughts:

Hands down! One of the best books I've read this year so far!!! You are not ready for this book. The relationship between Signa, Sylas, and Death will have you clutching your pearls. Not in a naughty way, but more like gasp, I can't believe that just happened!

This wonderful tale takes you on a whodunnit path. Everyone's a suspect, trust no one. Well at least that's what I yelled to Signa while reading. As the story unfolds you can't help but point the finger at everyone and in the end, your jaw will drop. I love Adalyn's writing and have been a fan of hers since All the Stars and Teeth and she has now become an auto buy author for me.

Place this book on your Goodreads 'to read' and buy it this August when it is released, you will not regret it!
