Do not be kept off by the uninviting official descriptions! There's a lot more to this novel than shock: it is a subtle, slow and developing shock that Curach manages to create with her effective choices of words and poignant internalisation.

Wonderful book that my freind loaned me on her Kindle - hooked on the kindle and on smashwords now! This is an intelligent story with hints of a backstory that I wish had been developed more.

Wonderfully creepy. I like how slowly layers of fog were erased so the picture became clear. Great job.

Reading this is like looking closely at one part of a dark, yet oddly poignant painting, then slowly backing away until you can see the whole thing...and when you do those last two words will wrench at you.
Theres no trickery here, no "hey look, a twist!". The way it moves slowly from one perception of whats happening to forming the truth, is totally natural and quite moving. It shows a trust in the reader that I especially liked.
Dark and very moving.

It amazed me - it had me tearing at the end - which I don't usually do. There are, as the other reviewers says, plenty of clues that have you doing a face to palm reaction when you do reach the end (and don't cheat and ruin it by going there first!) It just makes me want to read more by this very talented writer.

Review by: Mary Ann Peden-Coviello on June 16, 2011 :
This is a twisted little tale. A dystopian futuristic situation and a flawed, damaged narrator leave the reader gasping in the last few sentences.

The writer, using a pen-name here, is masterful in leaving clues all throughout so I said, "Of course!" when I came to the end. I didn't feel cheated or tricked. The ending was still a stunner, but made perfect sense.
