Surprisingly really enjoyed this book. Despite several references to bloody murders, rape, and such other horrible things it never got too in depth and gory (which would have completely distracted from what the book was all about).

It would have been a five star review, if I didn't feel a little cheated out of solid the ending. Don't get me wrong it's still a great ending, just not a fantastic one which there is so much potential to have. Instead Herley keeps creating tension then just letting it fizzle out - it's dissappointing - I also found myself left with a few questions which is always frustrating.
