My review

~I received a free copy for my honest review~

3/5 Stars

Definitely action-packed and intense, this short prequel to Dawn Husted’s series held my interest, however, I felt as if it might have moved too quickly. I think it could’ve benefited from some more character development because I felt as I couldn’t really connect to any of them. However, I’ll be reading more in the series because Miss Husted has intrigued me into seeing where Thanatos and Molly’s story will go.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
