Some things are better left unseen.
Some hearts are better left unmet.
Living in Helm is a new experience for Verity, she's the only female in a world of boys. Most of them embrace her as a potential friend, others long for her death, and one ... well, one she can't seem to pin down.
Her new possible boyfriend neglected to tell Verity there's an ancient prophecy that foretells the end of Helm's leader at the hands of the mortal veil-seer. A few of the boys fighting beside her feel the best way to keep Haydn alive is to make sure the veil-seer dies.
Verity barely survived her sixteenth birthday. Now she may not live to see her seventeenth.
Helm Abomination shows that finding the love of your life can come at too high a cost.
I loved Verity's snarky nature along with the characteristics of being all girly. Verity's quips/snarks are priceless. The politics and history was intriguing. Ms. Phoenix kept the intrigue & suspense at high-peak.
Haydn's character is a hunky & sigh worthy. He has the world on his shoulders; carrying secrets and mysteries beyond his years.
The world Ms. Phoenix created is full of witches, dwarfs, fairies, monsters. Her descriptions are vivid and detailed and the mingling of these complex characters into the human world was skillfully done and interesting.
I recommend this book to anyone that likes a solid well-written story-line by a talented author.
