Es un libro bastante malo empieza bien con el humor g tico y el suspenso inicial Sin embargo se sale bastante de control el elemento ciencia ficci n nada ue ver con la mitolog a mesoamericana y mucho menos con la literatura t pica g tica Me desilusion mucho Suena bastante parecido a crimson peak honestamente estoy enojada de lo malo ue est I arely Impaired: A Nurse's Story of Addiction read horror but I seem to be on a bit of a horror bender at the moment and picked this up to continue theide My initial thoughts are that it s uite disturbing and I both love and am afraid of this bookSet in 1950 Noemi lives in Mexico City enjoying the parties games and the flirting with handsome heirs to vast companies When her cousin Catalina sends a telegram saying her new husband is trying to poison her Noemi sets off to investigate her cousin s strange claim Trekking across the Mexican countryside Noemi arrives at High Place a Victorian style manor house that lords over a small town once famed for its silver mine All that The Forever Court (Knights of the Borrowed Dark remains of the silver is Catalina s husband s family the Doyles and a few silver trinkets Unwelcomed by the Doyles Noemi finds her cousin has become a nervous wreck making claims the walls are talking to her and her husband Virgil is trying to poison her and vows to stay with her to keep her company But as Noemi investigates her cousins claims she unwittingly uncovers dark mysteries surrounding the Doyles and their silver mine The she scratches at the mysteries the deeper Noemi begins to fall into the same dark trap as CatalinaThis is NOT my usualead however I m lately taken by creepy housestowns with creepy histories and this definitely delivers It s a bit of a slow burn to begin with but it absolutely knocks it out of the creepy park about 34 of the way through and looking back it s not possible to do that without the slow setupWhat I loved most about this book was the time period and the setting The author describes everything so ichly I had no trouble picturing it Noemi also has several disturbing dreams and they too were handled eally well the creepiness of this book is delivered in the writing Everything is so easily pictured and I think that s why I both love and am afraid of this bookIt s honestly a gem and you should give it a go Mexican Gothic has been everywhere this year and as a long time fan of Silvia Moreno Garcia s work I ve loved seeing so many Ola Shakes It Up readers discover just how good she is Weirdly though it took me a while to get to this novel despite it being one of my most anticipatedeleases of the year because I saw so much hype for it that I worried I might hype it up too much in my headI needn t have worried One of the things I love about Moreno Garcia s work is that I m never entirely sure where it s going and that s definitely true of this Gothic horror novelIt s Mexico in 1950 and socialite Noem Taboada is asked to visit High Place an old manor in the Mexican countryside after her father The Glass Arrow receives a worrying letter from Noem secently married cousin Catalina It sounds as though Catalina is unwell perhaps she euires treatment for mental health and Noem s family want not only to make sure Catalina is safe well but also to make sure there s no scandal for their familyWhen Noem arrives at High Place however it s clear that something isn t uite ight The English family who live there once the proud owners of a wealthy mining empire are peculiar and secretive the townspeople claim the family are cursed and Noem often feels like something in the very walls is watching herAs always I fell in love with Moreno Garcia s heroine Each of her novels has had a very different woman at its centre and I ve loved all of them and Noem is no different She loves parties and boys and drinking and smoking but she also wants to attend university and she s not someone who can be easily pushed around If this were a Gothic novel written back in the 18th or 19th centuries Catalina would probably be our innocent heroine and I was very fond of Catalina too but I loved how Moreno Garcia gave us a Gothic heroine of a different kindIn this way Mexica.

throughout the history of the Gothic genre have already happened by the time Noem arrives at High Place and instead we Gideon's Ride re seeing the Gothic novel from the perspective of theescuer Dahmer Detective: The Interrogation and Investigation That Shocked The World rather than the innocent vulnerable girl If youe a fan of Angela Carter s fairy tales this is a novel for youThis is a Gothic novel in which women are allowed to be angry for all the crap they ve been put through throughout the history of the horror genre without ever pointing a finger at the horror genre as being the problem Women have been writing horror for as long as the genre has been around with Mary Shelley and Ann Radcliffe being some of the better known early examples and this novel doesn t criticise the genre itself but instead 20th Century Photography: Museum Ludwig Cologne really focuses our attention on the kinds of violence women are subjected to within the genre which played out beautifully against the backdrop of Mexico in 1950 when women didn t yet have the voteMexican Gothic is so easy toead and genuinely uite creepy at times there were a couple of moments when I knew that had this story been a film I d ve jumped out my skin and if you e a fan of Gothic tales with creepy houses like Rebecca this is one novel you need to try I didn t know I needed a Gothic novel with a Mexican

estate linked to an erstwhile British un silver mining company high in the mountains The building is text book spooky Victorian and the family members are an eclectic mix of curious individuals who are each leading a strange life incarcerated in their spookily atmospheric surrounds a long way away from civilisation Part Hammer Horror part Addams family or as the Guardian newspaper puts it Lovecraft meets the Bront s in Latin America The setting is perfect for the storyline and evoking this ghostly and atmospheric backdrop is something the author does superbly well And There are plenty of comparisons to Jane EyreI confess that this took me out of my comfort zone I am not naturally drawn to the gothichorror genre but I have to say it was the cover that swung me in the book s favour that and also because it was set in Mexico Just see the power of the book cover ad locationCatalina is living with her husband Virgil Doyle in the misty mountains near El Triunfo in the family mansion where patriarch Howard Doyle is still wheezing away his days on his looming death bed The family have mined the silver in the area for several generations Catalina has sent a letter #to her cousin
