On Roanoke Island, the legend of the 114 people who mysteriously vanished from the Lost Colony hundreds of years ago is just an outdoor drama for the tourists, a story people tell. But when the island faces the sudden disappearance of 114 people now, an unlikely pair of 17-year-olds may be the only hope of bringing them back. Miranda, a misfit girl from the island's most infamous family, and Phillips, an exiled teen criminal who hears the voices of the dead, must dodge everyone from federal agents to long-dead alchemists as they work to uncover the secrets of the new Lost Colony.

    " The concept of the story mixed with the historical background of the Island of Roanoke in "Blackwood" by Gwenda Bond was promising . . The beginning of the book, Bond effectively hooks you with Miranda's story. However, as the novel continues the storytelling lacks the momentum which should have completely grasped onto your interest throughout the remainder of the book. Perhaps my expectations where a bit high and that is why the book failed to become a page-turner in my eyes. A book worth reading but don't expect too much. "

    " Super promising concept - a contemporary novel about what happened at Roanoke? Fascinating. But the execution didn't fully come together for me...insta-love, easily explained curses and one-sided villains. "

    " I adored the pacing of this book. Some books can't seem to get it down, but this one is aces in that category. I did have a favorite character although they weren't developed as well as I'd of liked. I was in love until about the middle of the book then I fell in like. "

    " I DNF'd this book around seventy-percent through, as there were several elements that threw me off. Review to come closer to release. "
