Disclaimer: Reviewing NetGalley eARC
I think I read this as a teen, though all I remember of the classic novel is that it was kind of tedious. This format does a good job of making it more accessible. There're notes at the end that talk about the adaptation and how some of the symbolism is captured with visual imagery, and that did seem to add a lot, though it seems that maybe the original message of the book got watered down somewhat. Generally appealing artwork, probably would have rated it higher if I appreciated the story more. :/
1758,London.Beatrice Scarlet,a widow, works in a refuge for "fallen"women. But then some of these young girls (who,after a rehabilitation period,are sent out to factories )disappear.
Although the title implies witches and witchcraft (so does the cover by the way),this is more of a mystery story with some dark/horror undercurrents. But after a rather slow start it is definitely a thrilling read and mostly well written.This also happens to be the second book in this new series.
Only comment,perhaps certain scenes (rape scenes mainly)might have been a little less graphic.
