My Thoughts & Review

I purely picked this book up based on the gripping premises it promised when I read the description sadly it left me a little underwhelmed and disappointed.

This isn’t a bad read at all the story was intriguing to a point that I kept reading but honestly I felt a little disappointed by the time I got to the end it. It really started off well but as the book progresses things started to become predictable and I knew what direction the book was heading before I even reached the end.

As for the characters well, like the plot they started off being really interesting but as we get to know them a little they become quite unlikeable and by the end I really didn’t care what happened to them.

All in all, an average read. Think it could have been much better with a little more action and better fleshed out characters.

Definitely haven’t been put off picking more from this author in the future!!
