SHUTTER by Courtney Alameda

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow. This book is amazing. Seriously amazing.

I don't know why it's taken me so long to read it, but I'm glad I grabbed my Kobo the other day and finally got stuck into it.

Micheline Helsing is a direct descendant of Van Helsing. She's a tetrachromat, and captures spirits with her trusty camera. She's also part of a young crew and is always willing to take on any threat. And that's exactly how they all end up getting infected by a soulchain.

Now they're in a race against time to break the curse before it totally engulfs them. Unfortunately, the soulchain isn't the only thing she needs to worry about...

Most of this book read like an action-packed movie. It moves quickly, the worldbuilding is awesome, the problems are both otherworldly and real. And the horror doesn't hold back. It's just a great story that kept me glued to every single page.

I also thought the San Francisco setting was really fitting. And the characters are just SO good. Plus the Aussie character was so genuine. I mean, I liked Ryder for who he was and what he did, but the Aussie stuff was spot-on.

I'm so glad I finally read this fantastic and clever book!
