My Review

5/5 Stars

A very intense read with suspense and mysteries coming from all angles.

With the thought of a missing sibling on both Felicity and Jonah’s minds, they set off to find them, and the truth is so much worse than what they could’ve prepared themselves for. When a supercomputer takes control of their lives, they face demons both real and not.

I love the unique idea of the plot, and I think this story really has the potential to attract all kinds of readers from lit rpg readers to thriller readers to suspense.

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.
