The first thing that really impressed me was the characters, all of them were very well developed and very well written with their own style, my personal favorite character in this story was Nora though I must admit I had a hard time picking my favorite character they are all so good in their own way.
The story itself is well planned out and a good story always shows in the first part of the story, of course A. M. Albaugh did this perfectly! Throughout the whole story though I was gripped!
Conclusion, I highly enjoyed reading Grim Nora and the Secret of the Skull, I found it amazing, capturing and a stunning YA fantasy.”
