I received an ARC of this book form the author and I voluntarily reviewed it. Thank you Natasha Knight!
Wow! This book was dark and totally up my alley. I didn't know what to expect when I first dove in - Knight is one of the authors I just read everything they write and don't really check the blurbs. I loved the premise of the book. It had a classical originality to it, in the sense that it was a completely new approach to something familiar.
The book was dark, twisted and totally delicious. The heroine is strong and self-affirmed. She will make you smile but also shake your head at her audacity and that is what makes this book fun to read. Maybe I'm a little wack when I say "fun", because well, this book is angsty, it's nerve-racking, suspenseful, and definitely not flowers and rainbows.
Anyways, in true Knight fashion, this book nailed it in originality, evoking emotions, and connecting with complex and multi-faceted characters. I cannot wait to see what the sequel has in store.
