The Crow Box (The Shadow & Ink Series Book 1) by Nikki Rae

 
 
Goodreads review
 
 
 
 
The small wooden box is dirty, the size of a human fist, and sealed with wax. When Corbin takes it upon herself to clean it and break the seal, a voice she has tried to ignore gathers strength. Shadows play on the walls at night, and with a family history of mental illness, Corbin fears the worst. But the voice tells her it is real. That its name is Six and it will prove it in time.

Drawn to this mysterious entity, Corbin isn't sure what to believe and the line between reality and her imagination blurs more every day.

Some doors should not be opened; can this one be closed?
 
 

This is an interesting read but I also have to say that I'm confused and not entirely sure how to rate the book.
 
I'm afraid that I'm the odd one out here and that I couldn't connect with Corbin who is the heroine of the book.
 
She leads an odd and interesting life. She is dedicated to her art and her mum is a hoarder and has some mental problems. Strange things happen to Corbin once she receives a wooden giftbox from her mother. But even before that she started to hear a voice that voice starts talking to her more and more that she signs herself into a clinic to improve her health.
 
The ending left me with more questions then answers and to be honest I think this is a promising series and I'm the odd one out here and really isn't for me. Therefore I won't continue with this book and when I look at all the 4 & 5 star reviews I wonder why I don't like it. Please note that this is my personal opinion and is to be taken at face value as there are so many good and amazing reviews out there.
