MY THOUGHTS:

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

This self-published thriller will take you for quite the ride! Blunt, bold and forthright, that’s how I’d describe the writing. A dynamite cast of characters, some you’ll love, some you’ll hate and some you’ll love to hate, all will take you into the dark depths of depravity, and shine light on the strongest human traits least celebrated until fate insists.

The main character  pushes the story forward with action and continuous opposition and roadblocks that she must overcome. As she strives to reach her goals, she embarks on defeating foes and situations creating enough exasperating conflict and tension to make your head reel. There will be times, you’ll wish her nightmare to end, even often wondering why she hasn’t.

All characters, even those short-lived, are strangely layered, their importance to the  story not entirely clear until you dissect the twisted parts of humanity, those we seldom wish to acknowledge but are clearly inserted throughout this nerve-racking ride.  I loved all their warts!

While inserting our summations regarding the authors’ talent and ingenuity in creating a fascinating and complex cast of characters, this reader must place equal acknowledgement on their success in creating a fast-paced plot, and a gruelling story-line. If that weren’t enough, they included settings and action that pulls you along in a uncanny fashion similar to the ups and downs and twisting tracks of a roller coaster. All will make it impossible for you to stop reading because you just need to know how it all ends.

Brilliant and exhausting!
