The Diviners by Libba Bray Review

* I have purchased this book with my own money.I was not in an obligations to post my honest review*

Evie O’Neill has been exiled from her boring old hometown and shipped off to the bustling streets of New York City—and she is pos-i-tute-ly ecstatic. It’s 1926, and New York is filled with speakeasies, Ziegfeld girls, and rakish pickpockets. The only catch is that she has to live with her uncle Will and his unhealthy obsession with the occult.

Evie worries he’ll discover her darkest secret: a supernatural power that has only brought her trouble so far. But when the police find a murdered girl branded with a cryptic symbol and Will is called to the scene, Evie realizes her gift could help catch a serial killer.

As Evie jumps headlong into a dance with a murderer, other stories unfold in the city that never sleeps. A young man named Memphis is caught between two worlds. A chorus girl named Theta is running from her past. A student named Jericho hides a shocking secret. And unknown to all, something dark and evil has awakened.


I kept hearing good things about The Diviners and I just couldn't wait to read it. 

I am so glad I read it because I love this book and I just couldn't put it down.  It is over 500 pages so it took me a few nights to finish it.

The Diviners is a well written creepy book that gets you hooked .  I don't think I have ever read historical fiction that takes place in the 1920's but now I want to read more.   

Only bad thing about this is that now I have to wait until book number two comes out.  I don't want to wait but unfortunately I will have to. 

I highly recommend this if you are into historical fiction that takes place in the 1920's and paranormal. 

I give this 5 out of 5
