This is one of those books that gets under your skin, definitely something I could describe as “unputdownable.” As Syd and Jack’s story unfolds, I am drawn into an ever deeper, darker world, each scene vivid and alive in my mind as I read it. The plot is crafted with skill, manipulating me at every turn. There is no superfluous fluff, every detail counts and leads me towards the fantastic, unpredictable ending which makes me stop and re-evaluate everything I had read up until that point. A very satisfying read that will linger in my mind for some time!
