This book was fun. It was so witchy, and dark, and I really enjoyed it. It was the first book I actually read from this author, and I was pleasantly surprised.
First of all, the writing was good. It was so gripping and easy to read, that I couldn't put this book down. Also the plot was intriguing and mysterious from the beginning, it was fast-paced and I didn't get bored one minute. As for the atmosphere, well this book was absolutely perfect for this Fall season! It was so dark with witchy vibes, I just loved it.

The setting of this book, in Palermo, Sicily was great. I think I had never read a fantasy book set in Italy before, and omg I just loved it! There were so many food references in this book that I was craving Italian food during my entire read. I really enjoyed this mix of fantasy story with such a human and mundane task of cooking, it added a lot of reality to it and was really done.
