This book wasn't at all what I was expecting and to say I was pleasantly surprised would be an understatement. It was dark, showing just how far the shadowed emotions of human kind can push you. It was written beautifully, with just the right amount of creep and horror to keep you fascinated, but not disgust you to the point of not being able to finish. It was dark, but so very well written. I look forward to reading more from this author.
