Ethan Lewis is a precocious, blissful boy. He has wonderful parents who love him dearly. He looks forward to what they all expect to be a promising future. Then, on one fateful day, his life is turned upside down as tragedy strikes.
Twenty-two years later, Ethan is a fragment of the man his parents, or even he thought he would be. He lives in a run down apartment building. He spends his days doing little else but simply passing time in his dreary life.
Then, a string of savage murders take place around his apartment building, wreaking havoc in the neighborhood. Yet, for Ethan, something about this evil is all too familiar.
Given no other choice, Ethan has to look to the past and conquer his darkest fears to find the truth behind these brutal deaths, and try to save any semblance of the man he was meant to become.
I thought I had figured out the twist pretty early on so I was kind of disappointed. While the twist was good I kept thinking “is that it? That was pretty easy to figure out.” However, the last 1/3 of the book brings so many shocking twists that I did not see coming. My jaw was on the floor the whole time I was reading because there were so many surprises one right after another. The twists and turns were so well executed and done in such a smart way. I’d highly recommend this to anyone who wants to read a creepy horror novel. It’s a perfect time to read this during the fall/Halloween era.
