My Review

My Rating: 5/5

This is one of those books where the less you know going in, the more you will get out. Because of this, I cannot tell you much about it…

However, I can say that I was utterly confused but enthralled by Isserley and her story. There is a wonderful perspective of humanity that is depicted in this novel that most of us would never have imagined/thought of.

There are some very dark elements to this novel – well… most of this novel – so it can be quite shocking, but that only makes it even better!!
