Publisher Description

A delicious tale of revenge and identity from Carrie Ryan, the bestselling author of The Forest of Hands and Teeth

In the wake of the deadly devastation of luxury yacht Persephone, just three souls remain to tell its story—and two of them are lying. Only Frances Mace, rescued from the ocean after torturous days adrift with her dying friend Libby, knows that the Persephone wasn’t sunk by a rogue wave as survivors Senator Wells and his son are claiming—it was attacked.

To ensure her safety from the obviously dangerous and very powerful Wells family, Libby’s father helps newly orphaned Frances assume Libby’s identity. Frances has spent years in hiding, transforming herself into Libby, and she can no longer allow the people who murdered her entire family and Libby to get away with it. After years of careful plotting, she’s ready to set her revenge plans into motion—even if it means taking down the boy she’d once been in love with: the senator’s son.

The game has just begun, and Frances is not only playing dirty, she's playing to win.

Just ridiculous

I could go into a million reasons why this book was so bad but I don't have the time. I lost that time reading this book. The Forest of Hands and Teeth was so well written, I thought for sure this one would be written just as well. The answer to that is no.

This book had soooo much promise, but ultimately didn't deliver on it.

2.5 stars for this book.

The back cover blurb is extremely alluring. It did its job and made me want to read the book. The plot itself, though, left a lot--and I do mean a lot--to be desired.

Originally, I got a Revenge (the ABC tv series) vibe from this book, but now I see how wrong I was. Yes, the central theme is revenge, but no revenge is ever gotten. In fact, all the main character does is "talk" (and by talk I mean inner monologue) about getting her revenge. There was a lot of telling and no showing and certainly NO action.

This book had soooo much promise, but ultimately didn't deliver on it.
