Really great 3 storylines that connect perfectly. Several plot twists I wasn't expecting. The end was a bit rushed at one point but then the very last sentence got me wondering if there will be another book to continue this one - got me wanting more!

This book was a complete page turner! The plot was full of surprises and kept you guessing all the way until the end. The characters were engaging and well thought out. Highly recommend this book!

I really enjoyed this book, it kept in tune with some of her other writing. Creepy and twisted just enough to keep you hooked but not so much that I had to put it down.

I found this to be a fairly dark book. You don’t really see much happiness or lightheartedness at all; perhaps, some degree in the end. It’s a hippie-communal type setting and deals with control, submission and revenge. Again, because of its non-ending downward spiral, I would not recommend.

A very strange and rather dark story, but it did keep you reading!
