This book was exciting. There is a bit of a BDSM environment that could make some people feel uncomfortable. My dad saw this book on my kindle and read it after me..needless to say I was a little embarrassed! haha. But the mystery part is also very exciting.

I don't often admit that any book was time poorly invested, but this title struggles from one end to the other. There are far too many grammatical, word selection, tense, and other editing errors for it to be considered a completed manuscript. The story is gratuitous in that it reads like softcore porn and has little if any redemption in its conclusion. There is a total lack of flow in that it jumps from past to present and changes POV so often that it is difficult to follow.

sorry I very rarely write bad reviews... but this book was not good. It was not close to porn/soft or bdsm.... fell short of describing anything.
horror?? the only horror i felt was the poor characters and rubbish story lines...
so cliche it was not even funny....
made it about half way thru before i gave up.
not for me... but others seem to think its great....

I really enjoyed this one not what I would normally would read but since I like suspense I decided to give this on a try. I'm glad I did because I couldn't put it now I wanted to see what was going to happen next.

Öncelikle çeviri berbat hikaye iyi işlenmemiş, bazı cümleleri anlamıyorsunuz karakterler havada kalmış tavsiye edebileceğim bir kitap değil başlamış olduğum için bitirdim.
