Plot 5/5: A good mystery that kept me guessing.
Characters 5/5: Interesting characters who I grew to love, and others I disliked quite a bit.
World building 5/5: This story is set in the Biltmore Estate and the surrounding areas. I had never heard of this place, but after reading this story, I would love to visit.
Pacing 5/5: The pacing was fairly quick, with slower parts here and there.
Writing 5/5: The author's writing is very good, and the story telling kept me entertained.
Overall 5/5: I really loved this story. It's a mystery, but also a story of acceptance and finding out who you are, where you're from, and where you fit in.
