Overview

One word can change the story of your life forever.

Abduction. Torture. Surrender.

Eleven months from her adolescence have framed thirty-one years of Detective Nykk Marlowe's life. Despite the trauma of her past, and the unique physical scars it left her with, she's built a career as a detective for the Adelheid Police Department.

Her personal life might only consist of caring for her sister and a pet rabbit, but she accepts that.

She accepts that she'll never be able to be like "normal" people, even the supernatural ones. As long as she can keep the past where it belongs, she's okay.

But when the body of a teenage girl shows up with the same scars that Nykk sees in the mirror every day, her "okay" life gets turned upside down and she's forced to confront the past she's been looking away from for sixteen years.

And when it turns out there's already more than one victim, the pressure's on to stop the killer before any more girls are tortured, mutilated, and murdered.

    I received this book from Masquerade Book Tours in return for a fair and honest review.

    This is Nykk's story and we are with her every step of the way as she tries to catch a serial murderer who is taking girls and experimenting on them in ways that Nykk is only too well aware of. She thought she was the only one. They told her that he was dead. So why are bodies turning up, looking exactly like Nykk? This is a raw telling of her history and you can see how it affects her everyday life. 

    Vance and Nykk are just starting the case when two FBI officers turn up - one of whom Nykk knew before she was kidnapped. They all start working the case together in the hope of catching the murderer before another girl is killed. This is an intricate and compelling story, not one to be read lightly. The plot is tightly woven and will leave you quickly turning the next page to find out what comes next.

    This world that has been created is multi-faceted and a delight to read about. Not only do we have vampires and shifters but also animators, summoners, hunters etc. There is a richness and depth to the world that makes it all the more real. This book is the best so far in my opinion.
