's review

it was amazing

This a chillingly horrific thriller told from the alternating point of view of the killer and the hero. Being in the mind of the killer and seeing how he is tortured his victims was especially hideous. It was too easy to imagine the pain they experienced. In a movie you can look away and wait for the scene to be over. This book gave me the shivers.

The hero's paranormal ability is one I've never read before and found very imaginative. I like how Rory is so generous in sharing his gift with others to help them even though he suffers until he gets rid of the troubles he collected from everyone else. It was heartwarming to see how the lives of those he helped were improved. I like Mariana for being sweet and accepting. This is a fast paced story right up to the very end.

We are just starting on the Audible version and oh my goodness the narrator has the creepiest voice ever for the killer. I got chills.
