Oops. Sorry Kevin. I guess you didn't get on the list for this one. I'll PM my contact and ask her to send you a copy. Sorry about that!


Ctgt Finished a few days ago. I really enjoyed the book. Not a typical AAA read, but I found it very thought provoking. A little bit of horror, some suspense and mystery wrapped up in a pretty tight narrative. Early on, it was interesting trying to figure out whether Pepper was actually seeing this devil; was this the drugs or was the building/atmosphere of the ward influencing him?

I thought the book really took flight once the cast of supporting characters was introduced. So many layers of differing personalities that formed little groups and the interaction between these groups just added so much to the overall story.

Like I said earlier, this is not a fast paced book, it has a sort of methodical pacing, but I never thought it slowed down to a crawl.

Thanks to Lady D and the publisher for sending us copies!
