Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This was a bizarre almost horror, almost dystopian fantasy, almost sci-fi that kept me fascinated to the end. I couldn't give it 5 stars because there were a lot of typos, etc., and I did find that the story didn't go the direction I expected it to, which in a way didn't quite satisfy me. Still, I liked it. I liked it enough I'll probably read the others. Caroline is an amazing author, and despite my personal reservations (which are minimal), I consider the book well worth the cost and the read.
