I don't know what it was about this book but I had heard decent reviews about it but I wasn't thrilled at all. I didn't like Jace at all. I know he went through a lot of crazy stuff really young in his life and was 100% effected by it but it was kind of arrogant and a jerk. I can honestly say the only character I liked was Miriam. I knew the mom wasn't going to live the dad in the story. I wish Jace and his brother, Christian would have stood up to him and done something to help his mother who was trapped unlike her sons. Honestly, I knew nothing was really going to be resolved at the end of this book and almost stopped reading it but I knew I had to finish it for the committee I am on. I kind of stopped caring about Jace and his family and I am not sure if this is because of the writing, the character development or whatever but I am not a fan of this book at all.

This book was really freaky and a little too graphic for me with what this dad did to his family. I know like I said earlier this kind of stuff unfortunately happens all the time but my gosh, so disturbing.
