We each had completely different expectations earlier than beginning The Maidens – Nerijus has learn and liked The Silent Affected person, so he was anticipating to be blown away once more. In distinction, Ingrid had no earlier expertise with this creator. However, The Maidens saved each of us on the sting of your seat, asking for only one extra web page! The creator has a knack for holding his readers speculating what occurs subsequent! We liked how the suspicion ranges have been held excessive, forcing you to begin to attempt to remedy the thriller earlier than it is revealed. Additionally, Nerijus has liked the little references to The Silent Affected person!
The ebook’s premise is improbable – the legendary College of Cambridge, ritualistic murders linked to historical Greek mythology, a good-looking professor makes it straightforward and satisfying learn. After ending the story, we’ve got each agreed that the ebook has some plot holes, resembling unclear killer motives and unexplainable major characters obsession with the crime. Nevertheless, these are minor and doesn’t smash the ebook.
Whereas not as sturdy as The Silent Affected person – The Maidens is an satisfying and fascinating thriller.
3.5 stars out of 5 mixed from each of us
