Blackfin Sky by Kat Ellis is an excellent supernatural horror novel set in the small town of Blackfin where strange things regularly happen. Despite the town’s general oddness, no one is prepared when Sky shows up to school one day…three months after her body was found, drowned and definitely dead. Sky soon discovers she has supernatural powers and that her history is tied to that of a burnt out circus in the woods near her town.
I discovered this book when I was still working at the library and decided to read it based on the cover and back cover blurb alone. I was blown away, even more so when I investigated the author afterwards and discovered this was her debut novel. I recommend Blackfin Sky to anyone who likes their supernatural with a good dose of mystery, and I am eager to check out Ellis’s subsequent work (her fourth novel is due out in 2020).
