Vickie has always lived a quiet, ordinary life in an equally quiet and ordinary small town. Yet one fateful night a child turns up dead in the woods behind her house in a ritualistic slaughter. Vickie and her family are suddenly thrown into a national spotlight. But as the investigation unfolds, she begins to realize her family isn’t so ordinary after all. Evil is inching closer to those she holds dear and Vickie isn’t sure who she can ultimately trust.
This is my second book from Shannon and one thing that I need to make clear to you guys is that the woman is bloody brilliant!
You may remember that the first book I ever read from her and actually reviewed was Vanquished. That book was to be a huge amazing surprise and Ultimate Sacrifice and even better!
I got really hooked on those scary thriller and this one ticks all the right boxes. Plus with Halloween around the corner and this is the best time of year for those kinds of books and movies.
Now, I going to be honest with you all. There is a part of it that I saw coming, but in the way that the book is written, I kept wondering until well… I was right!
I am being cheeky, but I like it when my hunches are proven correct. However, at the same time there are a few other things that took me totally by surprise and here is where I think Shannon’s genius writing comes into play.
We get a really good look and Vickie and her family and frankly as a character she is wonderfully determined and smart. I like that is my heroines.
Honestly, if you like, scary, weird, creepy and anything else make your heart nearly stop this is the book for you! I love the surprising twists and did I mention that Shannon is a genius?
Yup, so it comes as no surprise that I am going to very highly recommend the book and hope you love it as much as I do.
