Aside from the glaring continuity errors the story is OK, there is a lot of sex and it does read like something a YA might have written or a YA might want to read but it’s the ending which really stretches credulity. Really? Really?
I'm giving this 3 stars as I did manage to finish it, although for a short book it felt very loooong, my advice would be not to pay more than 99p for this book, it will while away a few hours but won't make much of an impression.
I finally gave up and read the last chapter as suggested by another reviewer. I am so glad I didn’t waste my time on reading the whole book.
This book is, as every book I read by Mark Edwards so far, absolutely brilliant. I don’t know how he does it but he’s a genius in creating these so strong and extreme characters that won’t let you put the book down.
I semi-enjoyed the book and it was a quick read, kept me captivated almost throughout, apart from the sex scenes of which there were too many. Same in Edward’s Magpies. Way too much sex.
The main let down is the twist. Why does the baddie of the story have such a tiny part to play until the moment she reveals herself to be the killer.
The author could have dropped a few hints and made the reader doubt any of the female characters a bit more, but there wasn’t anything in the story to point suspicion towards the actual baddie or any other possibilities. All is revealed in the end and explained in detail because there is no way for the reader to connect the dots because there are no dots offered in the story.
Could have been so much better.
