I almost classified this book as horror. The descriptions and actions of the characters were gruesome and horrifying several times throughout the book. Needless to say, this story was not one I expected by the title.

Although it is, in the end, a redeeming story, the journey to get there made me actually put the book aside and take a few breaths every now and then. The story is gripping through, and I read half the book in one sitting and the other half the next morning.

The only thing that is keeping this from getting 4 stars from me is horror aspects of the book. I could have done without a few of those descriptions. Blech.
