Synopsis from Goodreads
Elizabeth Cage is a child when she discovers that there are things in this world that only she can see. But she doesn’t want to see them and she definitely doesn’t want them to see her.
What is a curse to Elizabeth is a gift to others – a very valuable gift they want to control.
When her husband dies, Elizabeth’s world descends into a nightmare. But as she tries to piece her life back together, she discovers that not everything is as it seems.
Alone in a strange and frightening world, she’s a vulnerable target to forces beyond her control.
And she knows that she can’t trust anyone…
I was captivated by this novel from start to finish. I mistakenly believed that this book would be like any other that I become tired with in the middle. I was on the edge of my seat while reading this novel. One of the scenarios truly made me nervous. Despite my best efforts, I find it impossible to stop imagining and reading. The book is hard to put down. It hurts to stop. Therefore, it is preferable to be frightened when reading than to pause and ponder. The language in this book is likewise simple to read; there are no ornate, lofty terms. Because of this, I thoroughly liked reading it.
I had never heard of the author before, but I quite appreciated her writing. I really want to read the second book in this series, but I can’t seem to find it anywhere online. Despite the fact that I read this book on my iBooks, I still want to read more in this genre on print.
This novel is full with surprises. I was also happy because of Cage and Jones. I truly enjoyed their pairing. I got lost in a scene, but I still made it through the narrative. I’m still excited to read more of Jodi Taylor’s work. It was a lot of fun.
My Overall Rating
Here are some other quotations from the book that quickly became some of my favorites:
once something has been said, it can never be unsaid. You can’t unsay something any more than you can unhear it, either.”
It always occurs in real life for me. We are unable to take back what we have said. Therefore, in my opinion, it is always preferable to maintain composure, particularly when we are furious or upset, since once we spout out words, they cannot be taken back..
Fear that began as the faintest flicker and grew to an overwhelming flame.”
It might be difficult to overcome one’s worries at times. Sometimes it feels too much. Feeling that way is typical. For me, the more we envision something, the more real it seems.
I think there comes a place beyond terror. When things are so bad that human emotions simply aren’t strong enough to express them”
There were times when I was so terrified that I didn’t know what to do. While reading this story, I felt the same terror that Cage did. I recall being terrified as a child and feeling helpless… I experienced the dread even though it had nothing in common with this story.
that’s the great advantage of losing everything. There’s nothing left to lose.”
This is literally and genuinely true. I’ve read and heard a number of stories like this, and all I can say is that after it happened, they became very powerful, as if nothing could ever make them fearful of what would come next.
I wholeheartedly suggest this book to all bookworms out there. This novel is impossible to put down and will have your heart pounding.
