Great book if it's the first of a series. If not, the end leaves too many questions unanswered.

Teen Lovecraftian Steampunk! Aoife Grayson lives in fear of the madness that has already infected her mother and brother, but when she receives a letter from said brother, she flee the city of Lovecraft and heads towards her father's manor house in Arkham in hopes of finding him. What she finds is more unearthly than she could have imagined.

This was an interesting book, though more fantasy than horror (which is what I was expecting). It's also very long.
