One of the worst reads in a long time. Read like it was written by a teenager.The editing make it tough to get in the flow.In one sentence it would have contractions, also the lack of mixed in. As you can tell I'm not a writer, but well written books just have a flow to them and you can fly through pages. Not this one.The whole thing had a amateurish feel to it.

I was unable get through the first 100 pages because of all of gramatical errors and sentence structure problems. The story seemed gripping and intense but I simply could not follow because of all the errors. In all fairness to the author, this ebook needs to be proofread and re-released!

This book was such a thrill ride reading it. I started it after dinner and couldn't put it down till I finished early the next morning. Plus the moral of the story about child abuse and the monsters it can create just added to the impact of the novel. Even though it is fiction, it mirrors the real life consequences of how we treat our children. Can't wait for the sequal!!

I thought Punishment and sacrifice was a intense pageturner. It just goes to show what the consequences of childabuse can be and it is written in a raw and honest way. A outstanding crime thriller that keeps you guessing till the very end.
