My rating: 5 of 5 stars
There's a fine line between many things; love and hate, light and dark, brilliance and madness. Much like when the sun rises, the light it gives still touches on the light it destroys. And it's in that place, the moment between sunrise and day and sunset and night, that is the scariest of all, because they so closely linked that one cannot always be distinguished from the other.
SOME ADVICE BEFORE YOU START READING THIS BOOK:
1. If you're looking for romance, you won't find it here.
2. If you're looking for an erotica, you won't find that here either.
3. Leave your preconceived notions with all those other dark novels you've read.
What you will find is a story about the slow and horrific demise of one man, Joseph Carmichael. Set against the backdrop that is what we have come to know as The Estate.
My mind regurgitating what I've just read
While reading this book I completely forgot about the Joseph I'd read about in Madeleine Abducted.
I was introduced to a kind and gentle man. A man who was hopelessly in love, who would do anything for the woman he loves. But I quickly remembered why I detested Joseph.
What followed was horrific, yes horrific. When you read it you might not agree, but it was for me:
HORRIFYING (yes, I keeping going on about how horrifying it was)
Scene after scene of OMFG's and WHY's, my emotion's were all over the place.
Have you ever wondered if you could maybe just change the future?
Okay, but in a book you're reading?
And even though I new how it was going to end, the end still left me feeling like someone had taken a pot scourer and rubbed it along my insides!!!
OMG the stuff that happened in this book!!! I just can't believe it!!! I mean you know when you're watching a really violent movie and there's a scene with an animal dying or something? You'll watch it because normally they just skip over how the animal dies.
But you know that look you get on your face or the way you feel when they don't gloss it over and they show it in graphic detail??? Yeah that's how I felt while reading the book!
Damn you Joseph!!! Why did you had to be such a EFFING PSYCHO!!!
