Fiendish is a book by Brenna Yovanoff that takes you along on an adventure from the viewpoint of Clementine DeVore. Clementine has been trapped in her cellar for a decade, roots keeping her silenced for all these years and forgotten by those once close to her.
The way Yovanoff writes Clementine’s perspective on time passing by is one of my favorite parts of the book, how she explains that it all just becomes one great big blur. It was interesting to read and the way she wrote it caught my attention and got me interested in the book.
When Clementine is unearthed by a boy named Eric Fisher you get to know how she’s feeling about this change, the fact that the world is no longer the same place she knew ten years ago. Clementine struggles to adjust to this new world with her cousin Shiny helping her along as she goes.
The book is an amazing adventure showing the tension between characters, families, and the relationships between them. I was always waiting for another Clementine and Fisher moment because the way Yovanoff writes Clementine’s feeling for Fisher is fantastic and had me waiting for them to speak again.
Overall, this book is a must read! It’s fun, quite creepy, and original. By the end you’ll be asking for more!
