[Review]: The Casquette Girls by Alys Arden

Title: The Casquette Girls
Author: Alys Arden
Genre: Young Adult/Southern Gothic
Release Date: October 31, 2013

Summary:  Seven girls tied by time. Five powers that bind... One curse to lock the horrors away. One attic to keep the monsters at bay.

After the Storm of the Century rips apart New Orleans, Adele Le Moyne and her father are among the first to return to the city following the mandatory evacuation. Adele wants nothing more than for life to return to normal, but with the silent city resembling a mold-infested war zone, a parish-wide curfew, and mysterious new faces lurking in the abandoned French Quarter, normal will have to be redefined.

Events too unnatural – even for New Orleans – lead Adele to an attic that has been sealed for three hundred years, and the chaos she unleashes threatens not only her life but everyone she knows.

Caught suddenly in a hurricane of eighteenth-century myths and monsters, Adele must quickly untangle a web of magic that links the climbing murder rate back to her own ancestors. But who can you trust in a city where everyone has a secret, and where keeping them can be a matter of life and death – unless, that is, you’re immortal

Thoughts: I came across this book on Facebook. I had recently read about the casquette girls who traveled from France to New Orleans in 1728, so this was an instant buy for me. I loved, loved The Casquette Girls, once I started I couldn't put it down. The history, mysteries and the legends pull you in. Adele and her family history was intoxicating, I look forward to reading more. The Casquette Girls is gritty, spooky and magical. I can't explain it but when I read a book where New Orleans is the setting this is the type of story/book I hope to find. If you love New Orleans or just love reading about it and the history this is a must read.

Score: 5 Stars
