The book is good, it gives us a romantic paranormal theme we already know, with a fresh look and sweet. Combined fine and directed to the public to whom it is written.
I love the writing and sometimes I even lost in it ,in some moments, it felt very light, and with a very natural way with unexpected twists.
It is a story that combines many feelings, but that does not leave out the paranormal time to which it is intended. If you are one of those people who are looking for a sweet, sad paranormal, and with bundled writing, this book you would like
