On the edge of my seat!
On the edge of my seat! In this next installment, we see Ella and Mia team back up to take down Tobias while also hunting another killer that’s after Ella and potentially working with Tobias to harm them. I loved that the killer that Ella was after was constantly making her (and the reader) think to figure out what was coming next, and we also see Ella rediscover her love of what she does through this as well. I also love that we see Mia determined to end this decades-long battle with Tobias, even if it means losing her own life in the process of taking his. I was shocked at the ending with Tobias and finding out that it wasn’t over for them in this book, and I’m very intrigued to see if they ever catch him!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
Read first 5 chapters and was ridiculous
I enjoy the series, not brain food but a nice “curl up and read” evening’s entertainment.
I would implore the author to PLEASE stop calling 60-70 year old persons decrepit and ancient! If I read one more character described as old, feeble, and SIXTY-TWO!! The descriptions of these characters befit a 97 year old.
