It took me a few chapters to really connect with this book. It has a slightly different feel to it than previous Karen Rose novels. A lot of the story centres around the villain and his two young brothers. I didn't like or care much about these characters so I would have preferred to see the story unfold from Elijah's viewpoint or his dad and Val's.Jace grew on me as the story progressed and I was rooting for him by the end.
This is quite a slow burn but the twists and turns are plenty. The last quarter of the book is completely taken over with suspense, action and drama and this was the section that I couldn't put down.
