First thing I saw of course is the cover. If I hadn't of known the title I wouldn't have guessed that the book had anything to do with hospitals or asylums. I definitely did conclude by the blood splatter that violent and possibly horrific events take place in the book. After reading the blurb I HAVE to know more about this patient! It gives you just enough little tid bits of information to hook you and make your mind start spinning with the possible outcomes of this new Dr. working with "The Patient". I can't wait to find out how this all plays out and to see that if in the end, the Dr. helps the patient or the patient ends up helping the Dr. You never know. But one thing I know is that I absolutely have to read this book now! Thank you so much for the chance to possibly win a copy based off my First impression!!
