I expected more, 11. Mai 2000
I was excited when I purchased this novel- I love a well written Horror story-but I was disappointed when I finished it.
While the main characters were well drawn, well at least two were (Abbey could have used more development)-the story went down hill as it progressed.
The book revolved around three women who are somehow linked to three witches who were hanged for their crimes 300 years earlier. How these six women were connected is a mystery that is not solved by the end of the book. The flashbacks were good but did not reveal many answers as to why these particular women were picked. This ruined the novel for me, I don't like unanswered questions.
Another things that confused me was the exact nature of the witches- they became creatures who returned every 100 years (1799, 1899, 1999) to exact their toll on humanity, but what were they? This was not answered either by the end of the book, I did not even know if the original witches and the creatures were one and the same- confusing.
This is not a badly written novel, it just needed more development.
