Thank you to Netgalley and Diamond Book Distributors for an allowing me an ARC copy in exchange for an honest review.
On a cool evening on the swamp, a figure appears dancing across the water. A human figure, but far from a human form. A Ghost, a young girl spirit that seems to have lost its way. A good Samaritan owl decides to help against the wishes of his animal brethren. What mysteries does the ghost girl hold the secrets to and what will happen when she and the owl unlock them together? Will they find out what happened to her? Will she find her way to where she needs to be? What will happen to the animals in the swamp and surrounding forest? An adventure with the most unlikely of pairs, The Ghost, the Owl.
Well, I’m going to keep this short and sweet because this was a short and sweet story!
It is the story of helping others no matter what. Standing up for what you believe in and going against the wishes of others to lend a helping hand should not be tied to a certain species, if we ignore the plight of others than nothing will ever be solved in the world.
And… THIS ARTWORK!!! WHAT CAN I SAY??? WOW! It is truly gorgeous!
PICK UP A COPY FOR YOURSELF!
The Owl, The Ghost is Best Served with
Owl’s Eye Cocktail
I got the recipe for this one from Imbibe .
- 3 oz. vodka
- 1½ oz. Amontillado sherry (we don’t have this in my area, so I used Oloroso Sherry, which is also nutty tasting)
- 1 oz. pineapple juice
- 1 oz. Cherry Heering (we don’t have this in my area either, so I used tart cherry juice instead)
- 1 oz. lime juice
- ¼ oz. absinthe
- Combine all ingredients over ice in a tikki mug, or hurricane glass
