This Wednesday, allow me to introduce you to Nine Candles of Deepest Black by Matthew Cox.
Description from Curiosity QuillsShe saw it coming. She knew it would happen―but no one believed her.
Almost a year after tragedy shattered her family, sixteen-year-old Paige Thomas can’t break free from her guilt. Her mother ignores her, doting on her annoying little sister, while her father is a barely-functioning shell. He hopes a move to the quiet little town of Shadesboro, PA will help them heal, but Paige doesn’t believe in happiness anymore.
On her first day at school, a chance encounter with a bullied eighth grader reawakens a gift Paige had forgotten, and ingratiates her into a pack of local outcasts. For weeks, they’ve been trying to cast a ritual to fulfill their innermost desires, but all they’ve done is waste time. After witnessing Paige touch the Ouija board and trigger a paranormal event, the girls are convinced another try with their new fifth member will finally work.
Once the darkness is unleashed, it’s not long before they learn it will give them exactly what they asked for―whether they want it or not.
Why I'm Looking Forward to it
1.) I love stories that take unexpected twists and turns. The final sentence of the description above signals that this book is going to be chock full of them! How will things turn out?
2.) I love this cover! I know that sounds super tacky, but how could I not want that cover on my shelf?
3.) I like that the author has decided to take a dark twist with a character who has already started down a dark path. Will she continue on her path into darkness or will she head to a brighter future? I seriously need to know!
