Holly amazeballs what a book!!!!! Definitely one of my all time favourites! Okay, but before I start with my adoration of the story and the authors, I have to leave a tiny warning. This book is not for sensitive readers. This is a hard core murder book, full of blood and gore. On the other hand, if this is your thing, then this book is a must read, but be warned, if you’re not sure, don’t go there. 🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃
And now let me go back to telling you how much I adore this book. Firstly, this book was incredibly satisfying in every way. Everyone who knows me, knows how much I adore these two authors and everything they come up with, but this, this is greatness on another level. This is a book for people who have been bullied and could’t do anything about it. It felt sooooooooooooo good. And once I started I couldn’t put it down, I read it on one go.
I really can’t say much about the story without giving spoilers because the charm lies in not knowing. And the suspense the authors built is freaking amazing. I had no freaking clue where the story was going or what is real and what is not. Cudos to the authors for doing such a brilliant job with the story.
And the characters… It seem superfluous mentioning their great world building and character development because of course it’s great! These two authors have proven their fantastic writing skills over and over again, so no need to mention it every time. Yes, separately or together, they always rock!
I have to mention two main characters Kenzie and Crane. Kenzie is a lifer in the Whisperwood psychiatric institution for unknown reasons, I can’t say any more. She is amazing, strong, proud and nothing keeps her down for long. Crane comes in voluntarily to resolve some unexpected issues and that’s all I am going to say. We all expect some kind of romance here, and of course it’s there, and it’s wild, all consuming, and annihilating anything standing in its way.
But what is really special here is their unusual connection. And although the authors never mention soul mates, that’s how it feels, for real. Not some fated destined loss of control crap, but for real, like when two people recognise each other as their other halves and nothing else can even compare. The chemistry between them is off the charts, just like their bond. And there are several scenes to testify to that.
The only thing I didn’t like about this book is that it finished and it seems to be a standalone, so I won’t get a chance to spend more time with Kenzie and Crane. I am seriously in love with this couple, what an amazing unity and unconditional love and trust! I love love love the authors for giving me this book. Thank you from the bottom of my heart ❤️
