If you read my reviews frequently, then this book is going to be way outside my normal content. Only about 1 in 8 books I review is fiction. And all except for 2 of the fiction books I have reviewed here have been Fantasy or Science Fiction. I am not traditionally a suspense/horror reader. The author of this book contacted me to see if I would like to review the book after finding my blog. I am always up for something different so I agreed.
The opening of the book is classic suspense. I was on the edge of my seat. The main character is scared to death of being alone in her home, because of past events and the author did a great job giving what seems to be unrational fears, real life and meaning. This is a suspense, through most of the book, you are not sure if the main character is deluded or someone really is out to get her.
At one point, I was reading late at night (while sitting on my bathroom floor between bouts of sickness-stomach virus) and kept wanting to read more, but being a bit too creeped out to keep reading. Eventually I changed books because I wanted to try to get some sleep that night.
If you like suspense, and don’t mind discussion of ritual satanic worship (not overly violent or bloody) this was a good book. If you have a kindle it is cheap ($0.99) and well worth it.
Disclosure: I was provided a free ebook copy by the author for review purposes.
