you have to read all three shiver , shatter, shudder but Shudder had me from page one. I was 8 chapters in before I could put it down.
Wow....what can I say. What a waste of time. The most predictable book I have ever read. You can see every 'twist' coming well before the reveal. Now I can see why Mr. Harper switch from this pen name to Michael Prescott. I'd want to distance myself from this rubbish as well. Thankfully he has learned and Prescott's work is much much better.

As much as I love Michael Prescott's books, I was thoroughly confused during the first few chapters. No way would I have guessed that Dominique was Angela's evil alter ego. Did NOT see that coming. The book over all was suspensful and kept me reading, but that alter ego bit just threw it off for me.
