My Thoughts:

This was a very interesting novel, with a very unique plot twist. It was a wee bit gory in one part and definitely showed how sick the human mind can be sometimes. It is 

definitely suspenseful with a surprise ending.

At first I wished the book was a little longer, but I think it had good impact at the length that it was. This was a good book for a debut novel. I think I might categorize this book a bit more on the horror side than the suspense/thriller side. Well done Terrill.

I have this book a rating of 4 stars.

Thank you to the author Terrill Davis who provided a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not required to give a positive opinion. All thoughts are my own.
