Pulp gothics are definitely hit or miss but this is a keeper While I enjoy it for sentimental reasons I'm a Taurus gal after all P it also has the classic gothic ingredients that I'm drawn to first person narrator 19th century setting echoes of Jane Eyre Despite what you'd expect from a Zodiac novel there's no supernatural element here; instead it pays homage to old old school obsession insanity jealous relatives As a bonus Ferrand's writing was better than average pulps The plot was comfortably familiar without being too predictable the characters were vivid for their entire 178 pages MOORMIST might not be a five star book compared to say Charles Dickensbut who cares? There's nothing worse than a gothic that tries too hard cough are you listening Grange House? I'd rather have a book that knows what it is thrives within that frame I thought this was really good I've read several of the Ballantine Zodiac Gothics and this is easily the best one so far It was a nice surprise well not a total surprise since I had seen Sarah Mac's review first to read this one after a long string of lackluster gothics
