    Loved loved loved this I'm such a fan of Barraclough's writing This one seemed a bit darker YA ish than Long Lankin and it's absolutely dripping with that damp and earthy English folklore atmosphere which is pretty much my favorite sort of atmosphere to read about Also the historical flashbacks about a young wit

1567 Aphra is not a normal child Found abandoned as a baby among the reeds and rushes the two outcast witches who raise her in their isolated cottage are never sure if she was born or just pushed up through the foul black mud for them to find Little Aphra's gifts in the dark craft are clear even as an infant but soon even her guardians begin to fear herWhen a violent fire destroys their home Aphra is My rating 25 of 5 stars I am bound here for as long as there are Guerdons in the world I must be in it And they have returned to the marshlands to me It s been four years since Cora and Mimi lived to tell the tale of Long Lankin The two girls survived however the scars they acuired are hidden beneath their skin After their father recently came into an inheritance their Auntie Ida s rundown mansion he tells them that they re moving to the village of Bryers Guerdon Right back to where it all happened Long Lankin may no longer be a threat but he wasn t the only one left to fear 400 years prior a woman by the name of Aphra Rushes loved a leper who was known by the name of Long Lankin She was sentenced to death at a young age for murdering an infant and his mother a spell with the intent to cure Lankin which had gone awry With her dying breath she placed a curse on the Guerdon line who were responsible for her death Flash forward to the Halloween of 1962 and her ashes have risen up from the ground to fulfill the curse that she placed on the Guerdon family before she was covered in pitch and burned at the stake I am the dust of charred bones and ash I ve considered Long Lankin to be one of my all time favorite gothic horror stories and news of a follow up story had me most eager even if I didn t understand the necessity There s a wonderful air of mystery to The Mark of Cain a constant sense of impending catastrophe The writing itself is elouent and I delighted in the eerie events depicted the old derelict mansion that was unsettling on its own yet the girls memories of their time spent there made it even so their temporary guardians that caused discontent than comfort due to their forever absent father and the strange items that they would find around the house like the bundle of twigs tied with red twine or the archaic symbols sketched on the doors The pacing felt constantly off and I ultimately feel it should not have taken all 496 pages to reach the point we did The slow pacing could have been easily made up for if that sense of impending catastrophe was heightened just a smidge The story is told mainly from the point of view of Cora who is now fifteen years old and is struggling to maintain a sense of normalcy for her eight year old sister Mimi The only trouble is since Mimi was taken by Lankin she returned a changed child able to see things normal people cannot Including the current terror haunting them in their new home Because we re told this story from the POV of Cora there s a bit of a disconnect of knowledge that keeps the reader in the dark since Mimi refuses to discuss anything with Cora What I m assuming was intended was to add even mystery to this story but it only caused the story to falter leaving it feeling all very subdued as if Cora wasn t actually experiencing it all firsthand Regardless of the fact that Mimi is only eight years old having the story told from her point of view would have been a vast improvementI ve come a long way in the horror genre since I read Long Lankin back in 2012 In that review I even admit to being a big weenie which I definitely wouldn t describe myself in terms of horror stories any Back then it took some serious encouragement to read horror and now I d consider it one of my favorite genres Long Lankin was a most unsettling read yet The Mark of Cain just didn t manage to leave me with the same impression I think it would be appropriate to actually describe this as Gothic vs horror for curious readers This may not have completely worked for me but this is a
