The beginning of this book is very graphic. However – the more I read it became duller.
Our main character Marrisa lives in constant fear. The feeling is brought by a very hard childhood, when at a very young age, she has witnessed the murder of her mother, and later experience years of abuse by her uncle and aunt. Finally, when the time came to leave the foster home – by pure accident she ran into a woman, who became like a mother to her, and most importantly – gave Marissa her future. Fast forward to the present. After years of peace, Marrisa’s life is turned upside down. Out of nowhere peculiar incidents began to happen, each bringing a dead body with it.
The plot was predictable. Marrisa’s character was not likable. I was surprised how quickly I’ve finished the book, I just wanted to get over the story and move on. But I must say – it was a good idea for the novel, I wish there were more captivating twists and the plot was stronger. I see the potential and will give this author another try with a new novel. Thank you Bookouture and Netgalley for a free and advanced copy of the novel.
