Review:

I actually finished this book ages ago, back in February, but I did not write a review because I honestly didn’t know what to write, and I had been in a reading and writing slump for a while.

I do remember that I enjoyed the story for the most part, at least until the plot twists came. I didn’t find some of them very believable, as well as some of the characters’ choices, so I was disappointed.

Still, I found it a very thought-provoking book and do recommend it.

Three years later, I am once again a First Reads winner. Unfortunately I was not able to finish this book. I actually did not get past maybe a third of it, I don’t really know.

I dove into a major reading slump in large part because of it, since I found it incredibly pointless and even depressing but felt the obligation to post my review. I think it’s safe to say that after three months I do not intend to pick it back up.

I am going to try and find other books that interest me, to see if I can focus on making reading enjoyable again. Other folks may find this book quite thought-provoking so do feel free to give it a try, it’s just not for me.

Review:

Hello, ladies and gents!

I know, it’s been ages since I posted a review. That’s because it’s been ages since I actually read a book. As I posted previously my life has taken quite a turn over the past year and I haven’t found the time or energy to read but the author was kind enough to offer me this book to read and review and I am so happy that she did.

Well I have to say that Ms O’Dea did it again. This short book kept me entertained through and through. I loved every single character and their evolution. The story was touching, thrilling, exciting and although the ending was very well achieved and timed I was left wanting more because I was so enthralled by the story and wanted to know what came next for all of the characters. This is a quick read that will grasp you and not let go. I am extremely excited to see what comes next.

Please note that this is a spin off of the main series Lake of Sins and I believe you should read that in order to understand the world building and evolution better, otherwise you will not understand certain references.
