Reviews

This is an enjoyable book - as fast-paced and gory as Darren Shan, amusingly sarcastic and as romantically bittersweet as a Bronte novel. * We Love This Book * Vivid and real. * Bookbag * Wow. Just wow. * FWIW.net * Sucked me in and kept me glued to the pages. * Paranormal Book Reviews * The central characters are strong and well-rounded...vivd and real * The Bookbag * Grabs you from the first sentence. The story is full of sharp wit and terrifying chills that will keep readers enthralled until the last page. * RT Book Reviews * I lived inside of this novel, swallowed whole by it's beauty and anguish. In short...it was captivating. * KindleObsessed.com * This is an enjoyable book - as fast-paced and sarcastic and as romantically bittersweet as a Bronte novel * welovethisbook.com *
