You know when you watch a scary movie and you get the shivers? Well this happened here. It gave me shivers but in a good way. I couldn’t put the book down until the last page. There are so many ranges of emotions at play here that the MC go thru, feel and experience. There are many things at play, that Kyle the heroine and Garin the hero go thru to get out the other side. They were childhood best friends and came from a place of poverty and ended up depending only on each other and their other best friend to survive in The Heart which is where they lived. They were as close as any friends could be until that night tore them apart.
Years later they (Garin and Kyle) are brought back together by another person, to where it all started. It a dark and twisted winding road of taking a look back at how these two friends who really loved each other back then were kept apart- the who, the why and how. Oh there is so many things at play and all I can tell you is there is layers apon layers to this story and the author did a great job and portraying Garin as the hero with a dark side , and Kyle who is hardened yet there is still a touch of innocence to her. Again, layers apon layers to the characters that she peels back until we get to who they really are. I highly recommend reading this story but read it with the lights on. I want to go in depth but it would be giving away the story and that I just can’t do. I want to tell you how great it is, I want to go further but if I do, I would end up giving the story away and that is spoilers. So no, just purchase and you can’t go wrong.
My rating: 4.5 stars ******I was given an ARC by the author in exchange for an honest review***
