The Diviners

The Diviners  - Libba Bray

I kind of liked it, and it definitely needs a second part, as the ending and the cast of characters lead us to realise that much more is at stake—and that a storm's indeed coming.

However, I had a hard time with half the characters at least (Evie herself, Isaiah, Sam...); the romance was rather useless, not glitzy-and-glamorous-Roaring-Twenties-like; and I thought the writing style itself rested too much on 1920s slang and idioms: not something bad per se, but after a while it became repetitive, leaving me with a "trying too hard" feeling. Too many mysteries were also left unanswered, and I really hope the second book will address some of those, not keep grazing the surface.
