At some point, right before my memory clicked off, the nightmare fairy must have paid the world a visit. Everything is just… gone, a tangle of blank confusion.
And now I live in a castle. Every little girl’s dream, right? Except it’s not. It’s twisted and abandoned and fake. I’m supposed to be safe here with my husband, but how can I be safe when I don’t remember him? How can I be safe when he feels so wrong?
Then a new monster comes to take me to a new life and a new cage far from the castle and the promise of safety.
NOTE: This book was previously published as Tabula Rasa. Only the title and cover art have been changed. The content of the book remains the same.
I really enjoy Kitty’s books. I never know where they are headed and can never predict the outcomes. I love her unusual stories and non-conventional ways. This one was very intriguing and mysterious. I loved Shannon and his ways even though he is not a feeling kind of person. I liked seeing the world through his eyes and how he knew he was different but still accepted himself and didn’t apologize for who he was. 👍
The monster that keeps me safe
Would have liked to see how their future plays out, kind of felt like I was left hanging,
Who's the real monster?
Like all Kitty Thomas books, this is dark and delicious. And like her other books, it's hard to write a review that doesn't contain spoilers. If you are a newbie, this is a good way to dip your toes into the world of awesomeness that is a Kitty Thomas book. Elodie is a complex character. She has no memories but certain aspects of her character still peek through. There were some interesting twists I wasn't quite expecting. Overall I really enjoyed the book. However the ending seemed a bit abrupt to me. I wasn't quite ready to let the story go yet. But still a very satisfactory read
