This is a whole new side to Anne Malcom and I loved it. This unique story just pulls you in and intrigues you. It has this whole Noir vibe to it and I totally dig it!
What does truly make it an Anne Malcom book? A kick-ass strong and indépendant heroine. Wow, Charlotte is one power house. She is the personification of Power (yes the capital IS necessary) and epitome of Composure. She is also a very intriguing character. She has this inhuman aspect to her that peaks your interest. As you read though, you get to find out what is behind that carrera marble facade of hers.
The plot twists in this book blew my mind! I did NOT see those coming! Malcom took me by surprise and made my head spin. Gosh those are fun reads.
The two words that come to mind when I want to describe this book are Dark and Sophisticated. The darkness was handled with maturity and class, the pain in this book was real and represented respectfully. That doesn’t mean it was pretty, on the contrary, it wasn’t sugar-coated. It was as real as it gets, uncomfortably so, and THAT’s what makes this book special.
