Why did I pick this book: I did some editing work on this title. After that work was completed, I was asked by the author to review the book. (I received a copy of this book for review purposes. Although I was compensated for the editing work, it in no way affected the outcome of my review. My review is my honest opinion of the book.)
Did I enjoy this book: I did enjoy it. This is a great story. I was engrossed and engaged from start to finish.
The prologue had me hooked. I liked that it was from Matt’s point of view. (The rest of the book is told from a different view point.) It was scary. It had action. It grabbed me. It was a good start to a good read.
I felt almost every emotion out there. I felt with the characters, I felt for the characters, I felt it all. Some parts were rather gruesome; some just gross. I cringed and wanted to cover my eyes. Those scenes are not for those with a weak stomach. Some parts had me shaking my head in disbelief at the characters’ actions, at their naivete. The love story was sweet. It wasn’t quite insta-love, but close.
Would I recommend it: I would.
Will I read it again: I will not. But I am looking forward to the next book.
