***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
A young girl is brutally murdered.
Two rival crime bosses fight for dominance on the streets of South Africa’s capital city.
The city’s underground film industry is set ablaze.
An angry spirit bent on revenge is on a murder spree.
And Alice, a university student, is caught in the middle of a bloody battle for survival.
Their fates all intertwine in this tale of vengeance and fury.
From the very beginning, this book is twisted. It is not for the faint of heart, but as the beginning sets the scene for an amazing journey that the characters go on. Vengeful ghosts, mobsters, priceless pain painting, and long lost siblings may sound like a thriller, but this one goes down a long dark road that I completely enjoyed. I couldn’t stop reading this book. I enjoyed that her characters weren’t just black and white, but has real depth and made you really think about what is good and bad.
Overall, this book was FANTASTIC! Horror tends to be a hard genre. Some people only go to the gore, and others don’t dive dark enough, but Joan dived to the darkest places and came back with a story that is both horrifying as well as almost uplifting. Sometimes people do bad things, and they deserve to be punished. Outstanding! I hope to read more by this author in the future because she has jumped to the top of my author list! Wow!
