No Rest for the Wicked: Mistress of None Book 1 by Phoebe Darqueling

Viola Thorne is a clairvoyant with the ability to speak to the dead. She has left her past behind her and is content running her saloon and escaping to her farm when the mood strikes. When a ghost seeks her out on the recommendation of an old friend Viola finds herself being dragged back into a life she thought she had left behind.

I love both fantasy and historical books, and I thought this book would be a sure hit with me as it combines both genres, but I found this book disappointing. Viola was an unlikeable character she comes across as ungrateful, and even though she has somehow created deep ties with the people around her, she is ready to flee at the first sign of trouble. The main issue I had with this book was that it just didn’t keep my interest. I am a fast reader, and I found myself taking a long time to read this book, I only continued with it because I hate not to finish a book I have agreed to review.

I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review all thoughts and opinions are my own.
