I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Lili Saint-Germain!
Oh. My. God. What did I just read? This book had me on the verge of uncontrollable emotion the whole time. Pain, anger, shock, being a vicious and addictive cycle. As I read every single chapter, I was obsessed, by the darkness; the heaviness it brought. Wow, now I sound like our main character Cassie.
This book will make you second guess every character's innocence and guilt. It will change your initial opinions of characters three times over. It will leave you stunned after each of the revelations the author brings.
Character development in this novel was impeccable. Every character of interest to us started off one way, and then due to their diverse and unique personal hardships, became someone new entirely. Saint-Germain makes us understand the source and trigger point of their darkness. It really stunned me how diverse everyone's path to this darkness. Saint-Germain was able to capture the complexity of the human psyche.
This book deserves a standing ovation. Scratch that, Lili Saint-Germain deserves a standing ovation.
