Review: As I Descended

As I Descended As I Descended by Robin Talley
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Throw together a bunch of fairly privileged teens at an elite southern prep school located on an old "haunted" plantation, and the stage is set for your average teenage tale of friendship, secret love, backstabbing...blah, blah, blah. But when Maria and Lily, roommates and secret lovers, open a door to the spirit world through an ancient Ouija board, enter the spirits who have plans of their own. This modern retelling of Macbeth is a creepy and sinister tale that blurs the lines between murder and madness.

I probably would have given this 4 stars, but after listening to the horrible voices on the audio version I'm fairly certain that influenced my overall rating. Most teens will love to hate these totally flawed characters.
