My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Despite a strong thread of violence, madness and the fact that there were several very graphic descriptions, The Thirteenth Tale was an amazing book. Creepy and suspenseful, the writing was amazing and reminded me of books like Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights… a sort of Gothic horror story that may or may not be supernatural. In fact, the author skillfully uses Jane Eyre as part of the story. The twists at the end managed to take me by surprise but didn’t seem like they came out of nowhere which is always a risk when an author decides to do a big twist ending. While I am not usually a mystery fan and tend to avoid anything that hints at horror or the macabre, I am very glad that I picked up this book. It was well worth my time.
