Not good for children

It was sort of violent,with danger, and it's kind of scary I wouldn't recommend it for younger kids. A main character's hand is ripped off, and a death skull appears on someone's shoulder, who eventually dies. There are creatures who slowly suck the creativity out of people as well. A innocent girl is hung. The main character also killed her stepmother.There is mild cursing, as said in the review above. I was concerned mostly about sexual content. A scene or two was a bit too descriptive for the younger kids. Also the mention of witches with little clothing. I think I could have waited a year or two to read it myself. Also included were characters getting drunk, and acting a bit tipsy; as well as characters who were arsenic consumers. However, I thought the plot was very well sequenced and written. It was a good book, although a bit mature.
