I can't imagine being tagged by ghosts, but that's what happens in this book. From what I've read and watched, you're supposed to prep and end with a ceremony before entering and exiting a facility that's possibly haunted. That's not what happens in Ashwood, and someone gets tagged- followed home by the unholy, the unclean, the very unhappy...
What happens when a girl goes with her cousin and friends to an abandoned asylum, then leaves with a tag? She get daily haunts. What started as a bad prank ended in trouble for Willow during both wake and sleeping hours. the freaking deeky creatures that plagued her during brief stints of unconsciousness now take over during waking hours! She's hallucinating and losing her mind!
Okay- This book was interesting. It started off really well and I liked it, though Willow seemed a bit boring. But there story sorta irked me. I understood why Willow was seeing things- that wasn't the issue. It was the bouncing back and forth between worlds without remembering- and when she did get bits and pieces, she didn't truly fight to obtain her memories!
And she didn't talk to anyone to get the help she could have received a long time ago. She also should have said something to her doctor who was connected to the situation a long time ago- but I guess that wouldn't have made for a good story, yeah? I don't know. Maybe I'm too old for this story, but it got sorta old and Kraft cheesy!
Just not my cup of tea, but that doesn't mean it's not yours! Check out Ashwood by CJ Malarsky. I'm moving on to the next read.
