I loved this book! The characters were fantastic, there's plenty of suspense and a slow build of dread, and it felt like the story had real stakes. I also liked all the details about food (yum!) and the wide range of spirits. I read it while home alone on a rainy night, and I was jumpy the whole rest of the evening after I finished.
