This one grabs you from the very first page and never lets you go. While it's not nearly as dark and macabre as I expected reading the synopsis, it was certainly written in a manner that gives quite an emotional reaction to what is happening. The characters seemed well developed for the most part, although there were a few questionable instances that left me wondering if parts were thrown in at the last moment to fill a gap. The flow of the story was done well, grabbing the reader from the very start in a way that keeps the pages turning even when things were not flowing as smoothly. The idea of the plot seems quite good and the characters seem fairly realistic, it just needs a bit of ironing out to earn four stars.
