EEEEEEEEEEEEEEPPPPPPPPPPP!!!! This is only word that I could think of that accurately describes my feelings for this amazing book. The Diviners was a heart-stopping thriller that had me shaking with suspense and anticipation. Set in the mid 1920’s, I was enraptured by the pos-i-tute-ly amazing flapper era and all that came with it. Libba Bray has once again amazed me with her writing, and continues her legacy as one of my favorite teen fantasy authors of all time.
Evie O’Neill has felt like she has never fit in. Evie O’Neill has truly done it this time. She has truly taken it too far. Fed up with her attitude, her small-town Ohioan parents have decided to exile her to Siberia to live with her Uncle Will, curator of the Museum of American Folklore, Superstition, and the Occult, aka The Museum of the Creepy Crawlies. Well, when Siberia turned out to be Manhattan, the city of lights, Evie was more than glad to go along with the plan; she was determined to live life to the fullest in the Big Apple. Teamed up with Mabel, her long-time friend, and Theta, a mysterious, glamorous Ziegfeld girl, Evie is well on her way to doing just that. Life was just jake until a dead body was found near the Hudson, covered in strange, unknown symbols. Stumped, the police called in Will. Now, what kind of girl would Evie be if she passed up the opportunity to solve a murder? Unfortunately, she just got in way over her head, for this serial killer was no ordinary man. These are no ordinary murders, and there is evil surrounding this case; an evil that has the ability to unravel the world. With her Uncle, Sam, and Jericho, Evie is determined to solve this case and save the world from utter destruction.
