Review: Unwept By: Tracy Hickman and Laura Hickman

Unwept (The Nightbirds, #1)Unwept by Tracy Hickman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Ellis Harkington finds herself confused with a nurse on a train. She doesn't know where she has come from, where she has been, where she is going. It seems like the nurse is trying to fill her in and that it has already been done before. She is returning home, to Gamin, to be cared for by Uncle Lucian (aka Dr Carmichael), and stay with cousin Jenny at Summersend. Her dreams bring her somewhere else, and bring someone else to her.
There is something strange about Gamin and something off about most of the people - especially Merrick and his home, Ellis knows something that brings her dread. She also knows something about a gate. The people around tiptoe, yet want something from her.
This book in all the spins almost makes you feel a little funhouse in the same way as the main character. At times it is almost like there is too much going on, and the reader should not feel as insane as the main character is left to feel like. But it is good, a great start on a series, a new and original storyline that I know I will enjoy.
