The story would have been more interesting if we didn’t know about Eve so quickly. It would have kept us guessing, until the end.
Right from the beginning it kept my interest and could not put it down! This is a must read and will be reading more from this author
A very physiological muster that keeps turning into something none of would suspect. The characters are very confused if not scared.
I could not stop reading this book. Had to know what was going to happen next. Great read. Will read more of his books.
The is an easy and quick read, it did not seem very long to the end as I did not want to put it down. The author keeps you interested!
This was a page turner for me. It started out slow but once just when I thought it was just another predictable story it hooked me. It was a fast read. Even though you figure out how it will probably end there are some surprises that keep you interested. The “drama” ending comes quick and could have been a little more exciting in the capture but overall this is the best book I have read in the last month. Just goes to show “ revenge is sweet” but at what cost.
