A beautiful, psychological romance and thriller. You will have to finish this book in one sitting, it's that good. By the end of the story I had suspected almost everyone of ill deeds. The passion between the characters is explosive and the storyline superb.
Throughout the entire read you feel the turmoil that Marissa is going through. This book will actually make you ask "What If". I love that the story wasn't given away within the first few chapters. You didn't know the whole story until the story was finished. Only an excellent author can write a story and not give it away until the ending.
Be prepared, if you haven't written other books by L.P. Dover, this book will cause you to look up all of her other books and on click purchase them all. She is an excellent author and this story shows the depth of her work. As much as I love her Forever Fae Series, this will be a favorite book of mine always.
