Review quote

- "I was totally fascinated by this book. It leads us into the beautiful country of Scotland and its mysteries. Including legends, historical events and explanations, without forgetting anecdotes, this novel is full of surprises. I even had goosebumps with everything that took place around the lake. The underlying subject, grieving, is well dealt with: heartache, pain, reconstruction, or at least an attempt to rebuild your life." (Amélie B.)

- "A fascinating book for a progressive immersion into a chilling universe." (L'ebookivore)

- "A story that is simultaneously moving and fantastic in the shadowy sense of this word. A beautiful background, legendary Scotland." (Amelie H.)

- "A dark, but captivating novel." (Chocolat Cannelle)

- "A touching and absorbing story." (Les Livres de Nancy)

- "If you're interested in the subject of this book, make sure to read this perfectly written story. [...] The construction of this novel is thorough, insidious, terrible and spot on. Bravo! I was expecting a different ending, more commonplace. Far from my representations of this subject, this novel fulfilled me. It's a refined, intelligent and pleasant read." (À la page des livres)
