    This book was great, well written and kept me guessing what was going on.
  • So-so

    By Daaip
    Good at the beginning, falls apart completely at the end. No explanation of how the bad guy’s identity is discovered, it just is , and the heroine’s escape from him relies on a really far-fetched coincidence
  • Attention grabbing

    By Gozdow
