My Opinion:
Horror fans, this is definitely for you. It had me looking over my shoulder when I was reading at home alone at night. It's that scary!
It's also very , and I mean, very graphic. In the same style as Stephen King, this author does not hold anything back from the imagination. Twisted, dark and gruesome are some of my favorite traits when reading this genre, I'd be disappointed if they weren't there, and this had it all!
Such intricate storytelling goes in this book. One minute you absolutely know everything that is going on.... or so you think... and then you're like, "WHOA!". You go on this trip with the writer and can't stop yourself following, even though it's like being the person in the horror movie that goes looking for the source of the noise instead of running. It's such good writing that you get immersed into something you already know isn't reality, but you lose sight if it still somehow the longer you read on.
Obviously I enjoyed the book. No, I loved it!!! So, enough said. If you like graphic horror or thriller, read it! 


5/5

As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see. 


REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

Meanwhile, the last heirs of a recently usurped dynasty plot to take back their homeland from across the Narrow Sea.
This is the eighth and final season.



REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

REVIEW: Boyfriend overload!!
The Rock, Jason Stathom and Ryan Reynolds in one film. Oh, my!
It was a great story, had tons of action and kick-ass moments. It was comical at times too. Everything I hoped for in this movie was there.
Just make sure you keep watching after the credits. It doesn't end when you think it does.
Watched with the hubby and he is a big fan. His exact words were, 'it was awesome'.
