This is the sequel to “The Secret Dead” and deals more with Vivia’s youth and fellow death hags. Again, it’s a very imaginative, creative work and I think I was better able to connect with the characters in this book than I was in the first book. I grew to like Vivia, the hag with pointy chin and warts and a huge heart, even more through this book. Her relationship with her sister and family was explored to a greater extent and I enjoyed that part of it.
As with her first book, the author has created a completely unpredictable, unique tale, infused with humor and heart.
I won this book in a LibraryThing member giveaway and was asked to give an honest review.
