***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
“What would you do if a man who was there to help you . . . was also a killer?”
Concealed from the dark, the shadow waited outside the theatre. After awhile, the shadow moved swiftly away from the building as the two figures walked towards their car.
“Okay. Go now and leave her be. Leave her alone; it s for the best, ” his mind screamed at him. But he couldn t just yet. Like a predator, he stayed and watched.
The boy studied the girl in front of him. Yes, she was scared of him. Didn t he hear her heart accelerate? She did not look at him for long but kept her eyes on the ocean. If she was scared, why then were her eyes sad and not petrified? The big rock they were on had concealed them from the passersby and motorists. He could easily crush her, and no one would notice until the next day. His smile was feral.
Alana was intrigued by the mysterious young man that spoke briefly and coldly with her. She become obsessed with finding out about him, and by the time she thought she knew him, it was too late. She was in the labyrinth with her own pursuit
I really wanted to like this book a lot but sadly it just fell short for me.
The story is very reminiscent of several other YA books out there and unfortunately it doesn’t bring in enough new elements to make it stand out from the crowd.
The biggest problem for me was the need for editing. There are many grammatical mistakes that pull you out of the story which is a shame especially when the book is in actual print thus making them harder to fix.
The characters themselves just needed a little extra something to make them come alive for me especially when it came to the interactions. It just didn’t sweep me away and take me out of reality in a way that I think the author would have liked.
I wish Floriminda the best of luck with her future endeavors but sadly feel that her style of writing is just not for me.
