I really like the MERCILESS series, so I'm not surprised that this book turned out to be a page turner as well. I like how a lot of things in this book could be real. There are a lot of secret experiments going on, trying to change people for the best, that I'm sure of. And I also think that if you're rich and famous you can buy anything, even some help to improve yourself and your family. Well, maybe the side effects of those experiments aren't really of the supernatural kind, but it made for a fun read. I hope there will be a next book about Charlotte and Jack, I would love to read more about them. I chose to read this book and all opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

I was sold at prep school with a hint of paranormal, but that doesn't seem like what we got. I didn't read the first book of this series, but companion novel usually means that you don't need prior knowledge. Now I'm wondering if it would have helped... I struggled with Charlotte. I understand being upset about the suicide of your BFFs, but it felt like her inner monologue was glamorizing suicide. She kept thinking things about "not being brave enough" to join her friends in the dark. There was an interesting story line, but it was boring at the same time. Everything felt so dramatic and overemphasized. For me, it got old really fast. Overall, it was a quick read with an intriguing ending, but it lacked a spark and a layer of tension that I was expecting from a story like this. **Huge thanks to Bloomsbury for providing the arc free of charge**
