White Fox Book Review

I recently finished White Fox by Sara Faring, which was released on Tuesday (Sept.22). Thanks to Fierce Reads, I received an ARC as part of the book’s launch campaign.

A spooky, atmostpheric read, it’s perfect for your October TBR list.

About the Book

After their world-famous actor mother disappeared under mysterious circumstances, Manon and Thaïs left their remote Mediterranean island home—sent away by their pharma-tech tycoon father. Opposites in every way, the sisters drifted apart in their grief. Yet their mother’s unfinished story still haunts them both, and they can’t put to rest the possibility that she is still alive.

Lured home a decade later, Manon and Thaïs discover their mother’s legendary last work, long thought lost: White Fox, a screenplay filled with enigmatic metaphors. The clues in this dark fairytale draw them deep into the island’s surreal society, into the twisted secrets hidden by their glittering family, to reveal the truth about their mother—and themselves.

My Review

It took me a little bit to get into this book, because there were so many parts (two narrators with multiple nicknames, a screenplay, and Boy) but once I got into it, I was hooked. (And everything comes together in the end 🙂 )

Noni and Tai’s voices are strong and each one is unique – so you don’t get them confused, which I really liked. The atmosphere is haunting, and there is a Gothic vibe, which I love! The island of Viloxin is so vibrant, it’s almost like it’s a character as well. The plotting is intricate, and the suspense builds, drawing the reader in with each new discovery the girls make.

I highly enjoyed this read and recommend it to anyone who enjoys a mysterious, spooky read! If you enjoyed The Companion (which I reviewed here), you’ll also enjoy this one.
