Interesting that the author chose this, the third book in the series, to really explore the aftermath of Lily's assault not just through the eyes of those closest to Lily but also through Lily herself's eyes, though this works ok as a stand alone novel it is because of this that I think the books are probably best...more
The pacing of this novel is good, it keeps the interest up and it gives enough clues to the plot that you can keep up. A great relief that there is no magical deus ex machina to save this heroine.
I'm not sure that I'd seek out other books i...more

Another great Lily Bard Mystery. I love Lily. She is so much fun to read and see all the things she just happens to find. I also really like Jack and am glad he is still a part of the story. I think Lily and Jack are great together. They both are kind of prickly at times, they both have some dark in their past, they so cute together! They both kind of back off when things get too real and close and it is so much fun to read.

I love the complexity of Lily Bard throughout the series. We neet her years after she was brutally attacked and when the story starts we see her trying to live after she was so brutally violated. I found her survival tendencies to be very interesting.

Plus ça va, plus j'aime cette série et plus j'accroche avec Lily comme personnage principal ! Elle est totalement badass ! :D Enfin une héroïne qui ne pleurniche pas à toutes les pages, ça fait du bien franchement, ou alors je n'ai vraiment pas eu de chance jusque maintenant. Pour l'instant, ce tome 3 est le meilleur des trois sorties en français d'après moi.
