The Girl from the Well by Rin Chupeco ~ 2014

You may think me biased, being murdered myself. But my state of being has nothing to do with the curiosity toward my own species, if we can be called such. We do not go gentle, as your poet encourages, into that good night.

Okiku kicks!  What an evilicious read. It is a story of a young girl that had died 300 years ago by a man who tossed her body down a well.  Okiku has wandered the world for centuries, freeing the innocent ghosts of the murdered-dead and taking the lives of killers with the vengeance they are due.  She hunts murderers - child killers.

When a young boy named Tark with very strange tattoos that carry an evil secret moves into a new neighborhood, he gets her eye.  As the story moves along, they travel to a remote valley in Aomori, Japan where doll rituals and exorcisms claim....

Great YA thriller and I loved the Japanese myths/folklore that were added.  Rin knows how to vividly portray the settings so the reader can actually escape their own reality, and, be in the element for awhile.

Pace was point on with all the anticipations, I need to add.  

Excellent story! Looking forward to the sequel, The Suffering. Thanks for your imagination Rin!
