The Hangman's Daughter (The Hangman's Daughter, #1)The Hangman’s Daughter by Oliver Pötzsch
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I thoroughly enjoyed the first half of this book. The characters were interesting, and I was invested. As the plot progressed, some of the events became frustrating. There are only so many times a character can black out and forget the revelation they just had or be *so* close to remembering, but it just doesn’t come. (The number is one, in case you were wondering. It’s a bad sign if the reader loses count after four.) I was sincerely hoping that there was going to be some kind of amazing solution to the problem, but there wasn’t really. As the characters kept saying, “The solution was so simple!” Unfortunately, it really was, and thus, a bit of a let down. I truly believe that if the book had been half this length, it would’ve been fantastic.

Note: This book is really cool to read on your phone or if you have a e-reader with color: the images are animated, which is incredibly creative and unique.
