My ThoughtsI had so much fun with this book! I was immediately sucked in and within the first few chapters found myself sufficiently creeped out enough to be checking window and door locks. In the beginning, I was thrilled to find that paranoia feeling surrounding me. Whatever this evil secret was, it could be right here, in my living room with me, and I wouldn’t even know it. That delicious spine-tingling sense that us horror addicts always crave was right there in my face.
Sadly, this feeling only lasted about halfway through the book. Though I was hoping the feeling would last, I was pleasantly surprised when it was replaced. Instead of worrying about the invisible critter that was going to get me, I began to piece together a grand mystery that was just waiting to be unraveled. Once I was able to glue the pieces together, I still had no clue how the book was going to end.
If you’re a hearts and flowery type of reader, this may not be the book for you. This is definitely not a romance where everything is tied up in a neat little bow at the end. If, however, you’re a thrill seeker or a paranormal junkie, you’ll have a blast with this one. Others may find the religious undertones a fascinating discussion topic upon reading.
