As Black As Ebony by Salla Simukka 


*Thanks again to Emily at Bonnier Zaffre for sending me this to review, much appreciated as always!*

About the book:

Lumikki Andersson must uncover a dark personal secret to outwit her bloodthirsty stalker.

Lumikki Andersson has a new boyfriend – easygoing, gorgeous Sampsa who adores her. But when her ex Blaze reappears, declaring his devotion, she doesn’t know what to feel. She can’t deny the chemistry between them, but does he deserve another chance?

Then the threatening letters start arriving, from someone who seems to know her intimately. Suddenly Lumikki is more alone than ever, and it’s not only her life on the line. To stop the killer, she must uncover a dark secret that has haunted her family for years . . .
My thoughts:

As Black As Ebony was an interesting closer to the Snow White series. Without giving too much away, a few things from earlier books are addressed and put to rest.

In this book, Lumikki is back home after the events in Prague and back to school. She also has a new boyfriend and seems to be settling back into things. But as we all know, life never runs smoothly in real like or fiction!🙈

As Black As Ebony gets into things pretty quickly. The reader is also given the POV of the stalker which adds an extra narrative to the story. I found that the pace in this novel didn’t work as well for me as the previous two. Absolutely nothing wrong with the writing, but it was super speedy.

That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy it, I totally did. It was easy to read, relatively short and tied things up nicely. My only issue was how fast the plot picked up as it seemed that little bit rushed towards the end.

That is literally the only thing that didn’t work for me though! I would highly recommend these books! They are different, fun and captivating reads! 😊

In case you’ve missed them, here’s the links for the previous two books in the series! 😉
