Thank you so much to Macmillan-Tor/Forge for giving me an ARC of You Let Me In by Camilla Bruce via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Cassandra Tipp is dead, her body is nowhere to be found, but she did leave a will to her heirs, her niece Penelope, and her nephew Janus. And on that will is a story that Cassandra wants to share.

The execution of this story was unique. That was my first reaction seeing the first 3 chapters. I thought we were going to read a series of letters that leads on the disappearance of Cassandra Tipp. I was preparing myself to witness another mystery/thriller again. But I didn’t know it would take that turn.

I was hooked, but with mixed feelings. Some part of me hoped it would leave the fantasy aspects of the child, that we settle into reality, but it didn’t. And I guess that is this novel’s flare. Bruce succeeds in making you confused but hooked, in making sure you flip that next page to see what is happening on Cassandra Tipp’s troubled mind.

This book was just… hauntingly beautiful. Like a dark idea that shouldn’t have escaped the mind of the author, but it did, and it’s out there for everyone to read. The contrast of innocence and stained darkness. Light and dark. Good and bad. Sane and insane. I’d recommend this to anyone who would like a dark read, but not to people who cannot handle gore and extreme metaphorical abuse.

  1. ‘Bruce succeeds in making you confused but hooked…’ – Having just finished reading it myself I completely agree, I found it exceptionally disturbing at times but could, not, put, it, down. The ambiguity throughout was really good and will no doubt lead to lots of discussion when it’s released.
