really liked it

3.5 -4 stars.

I read Without Condition as part of a group read with a few of the other members of the Ladies of Horror Fiction team. We had some amazing conversations regarding some of the life issues brought up in this novel, and maybe - just maybe - some entertaining discussion covering body disposal techniques. It got dark, people.

The first chapter of this book hooked me in quickly. Cara put me in mind of a female vigilante/serial killer and I loooove books on this topic. In fact, the first 1/3 of the novel and the last few chapters had me struggling to STOP reading in order to not get ahead of the other members of the group read. Taylor has serious writing chops and her characters are so true to life and engaging; this is a huge selling point for me.

The middle third of the book lost me a bit. I think, while this book definitely includes horror, it has a bit too much romance for me as a reader. Now - it's not frilly frou-frou is DARK. I found myself wanting more of what I found in the beginning and ending thirds of the book because once I had a taste for the ruthlessness in those sections, I missed it in the middle.

I just know people are really going to dig this book. As I always say in reviews like this, I'm looking forward to reading more from this author!!
