Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book.
You know how..... Nope, no, not right at all!!
Deep breath, and lets try that again, shall we??
You know how, sometimes, when you are reading a book, thoroughly enjoying said book, you got it all worked out?? You picked up the clues, and put the whodunnit together waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay before it was revealed in the book??
And then.....AND THEN!!!
THEN you get to 91%, about 20 minutes left in the book and you got it so very VERY wrong!!! I mean, I was really REALLY sure whodunnit, and I was waiting to see how Eden managed to get away, and then....AND THEN!!!
AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! I can't word this right!! I was way off base, totally shocked by that revelation, and I did NOT see that coming. I freaking loved that!!! I loved that even Eden did not see that one coming!
I'm sorry. Its taken me three days to come down enough to write this review and its not really making any sense but I really cannot word how much I LOVED this book!
It's dark, its so very deadly, and devious. It has love too, for Eden and Zach, Sheriff in Clear Springs where Eden's mother has her cult. Where the girls are going missing from. Where Eden has to return to.
This is the first book of Katee Robert's I've read. I hope it's not the last. This book is billed as Hidden Sins #1. I so really REALLY need to read the next one!
Because it took me three days to write this, because I screeched at work (where I was reading when I got to THAT bit) because...because...because....
(I am sorry this review isn't up to my usual standards, but I really did struggle to word how I felt other than I FREAKING LOVED IT!!!)
