Murder. Fire. Revenge.
That’s all seventeen-year-old Alice Monroe thinks about. Committed to a mental ward at Savage Isle, Alice is haunted by memories of the fire that killed her boyfriend, Jason. A blaze her twin sister Cellie set. But when Chase, a mysterious, charismatic patient, agrees to help her seek vengeance, Alice begins to rethink everything. Writing out the story of her troubled past in a journal, she must confront hidden truths.
Is the one person she trusts only telling her half the story? Nothing is as it seems in this edge-of-your-seat psychological thriller from the debut author Emiko Jean.
This book just didn’t work for me. I was hoping for a creepy and dark book, what i got was a predictable and dull story. I figured out the twist simply by reading the description, and that’s not something you want. The more i read, the more i was hoping i was wrong. I wasn’t… it’s déjà-vue, it’s predictable, it’s also a bit unrealistic. No way would people locked up in a mental institute would just be able to walk around so easily around the place. The epilogue was absolutely not necessary, feels like it just cancelled the last chapter. The characters were meh, i didn’t care for any of them. The writing was okay, i think i would read something else by the writer.
I’m sad to say i will quickly forget this book. I always feel bad saying this, but this book is not one i can recommend.
