Court of Twilight

Description from Goodreads:

Six months ago, Ivy stumbled into the deal of a lifetime – great rent in a posh Dublin neighborhood and a flatmate, Demi, who was only a little weird. It didn’t matter that their flat is packed with exotic plants or that her flatmate does all her shopping on-line but refuses to meet the delivery man at the door?

Now, though, Demi’s gone missing, there are strange men hiding in the flower boxes, and a lot of strangers have suddenly taken interest in the whereabouts of her peculiar flatmate. When the police won’t help, Ivy knows she’s going to have to solve this mystery on her own.

Ivy dives headfirst into a secret Dublin, hidden in plain sight, and discovers that the longer she stays in, the more she risks losing the world she always knew. Can she save Demi without losing herself?

Review:

Court of Twilight by Mareth Griffith has 340 pages and was published in 2017 by Parvus Press LLC.

Thank you to Netgalley, Parvus Press and Mareth Griffith for the digital edition of this book that was provided in return for an honest review.  The opinions in this review belong solely to Plot Monster.

I was extremely disappointed with this book. Perhaps my expectations were too high. The cover is absolutely beautiful. The title is alluring. The premise is interesting. I simply cannot force myself to finish this book. I kept trying but I finally gave up around 68%. It is slow, overly-descriptive and quite literally repetitive. Sadly, I believe this book could have been much better had it had better editing.

Rating: 1 Plot Monster Spider
