The prologue of the book is written in first person from the character Trina’s point of view. Trina is the daughter of a murder victim who was raised for the first seven years by the people who killed her mother. The prologue was so wonderfully written that it sucked me into the story from the very first paragraph. The rest of the book is written in third person and follows the present day life of Charlotte Rowe, the woman Trina became. I wanted to point this out in case some readers don’t like first person books.
As the book goes on, Charlotte tries desperately to put her life back together in her adulthood when she becomes manipulated in an almost science fiction like manner. The way the characters’ work together to bring suspense and excitement together, is something that Christopher
Rice does masterfully.
The book has enough twists and turns to have kept me reading all night long. It has just the right amount of believable technology and developing medical science takes this story into the realm of science fiction while keeping it relevant to today. Mr. Rice came by his storytelling talent quite honestly and what a great storyteller he is. I usually don’t care that much for series books, but this time I am going to make an exception. I have to give this on 9 out of 10 stars.
