I was looking forward to this one. I wasn't 100% sure what it was from the desciption that I had read early on but I was looking forward to it. Something about it called to me and I had to read it. Some books are like that. You cannot get them out of your mind. Something about them burrows into your brain and you cannot stop thinking about them. You have to read them, if for no other reason than to dislodge them from your thoughts. Some books go away once that happens. Others stay in there as though they have little barbed claws that refuse to let go. This book was one of the latter.

Where do I begin with this one? Do I mention how I was on the edge of my seat on more than one occasion? Do I write about how there was a moment where I exclaimed something so loudly that everyone around me stopped what they were doing and looked at me as though something was wrong with me? I could go on and on.

I had trouble returning to life while reading this book. I did not want to put it down and do things that I needed to get done. I wanted to grab my copy of this book, a hot drink, a comfy blanket, and hide somewhere so I could read it. It grabbed me from the very beginning and I knew that I was most likely in for a bumpy ride. Little did I know that it would completely veer away from what I thought I was reading. Usually when this happens, I am greatly put off because it disrupts the flow of the story. However, that was not the case here.

I am rating this book Four Stars because it was a truly wonderful read. I wish that I could rate it higher but there were moments of confusion that detracted from the story. Amazing character development. I found myself completely captivated, enticed, and sometimes even repulsed. I am usually hesitant to read books written by a team. This one did not feel like it had multiple authors. I would definitely read more by them. I highly recommend this book as it was one of the better offerings of its type from 2017.
