I loved the gothic writing of this book, and the setting, basically everything. If you were thinking about reading Falling Under, I would strongly suggest that you pick it up. Gwen Hayes does a fabulous job executing the plot and pulling everything together at the end. The book doesn't feel rushed, but it tends to move at a fast pace. Sometimes there are some slow moments, but with any novel you are going to find some moments where the characters need to be developed or the plot, which tends to take time and be slow. But, those moments don't occur as much. I also liked the small amounts of humor in the book. The main character, Theia, was kind of uptight, but as the story progressed she evolved into a better person and she knew she messed up, unlike in some novels where usually the uptight characters are "so amazing they never do anything wrong" (which is unrealistic).
