A Note From the Publisher

My Review

This book was odd, but quite good. I enjoyed it & it kept me quite enthralled but I just didn’t like how some of the characters were built up. The author made you think the character was going to go one way just to find out that the character went a completely different way and I found that to be a bit confusing.

The story line jumps a bit but it is still readable. In my opinion the author could have done a bit better in describing the back story of each character and some of the characters were not even needed, in my opinion.

I do recommend this book, it was a good book. I just had some issues with the writing style, but do not let that stop you from picking this book up and reading it.


I received this book from Net Galley for this review.
