I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters were engaging and the plot draws you in quickly. The writing style is very easy to read. This is a light, but well written, murder mystery. Details about horses and dogs add character to the story and make it intriguing. I would definitely recommend this book.
Loved this book - a wonderful, well written story with a twist. The main character was someone you cared about. A very different type of missing persons story - that alone makes it well worth reading!
An interesting addition was the Spanish language definitions at the beginning of each chapter.
I look forward to reading more by this author.
A good read, heavy with elements of symbolism, religion, and Russian history. Parts of book were excellent, parts seemed oversimplified and needed more development. I'm giving this 4 stars because I think it is overall a good book and that we can look for good things in the future from this author.
I absolutely loved the premise of this novel - what a great concept! This is a very graphic horror novel. The beginning was very engaging and the ending was engrossing and thought provoking. The middle, at times, was somewhat disjointed and overly graphic. I would have loved to have had the premise fleshed out at a more complex (and less graphic) level.
I really enjoyed this book. It begins somewhat slowly, but then moves at a rapid pace. The author is talented and has a great deal of potential. You can tell that this is her first novel - the quality of the writing improves throughout the book. The premise and plot of the story are great, however, at times, the characters seem a bit one dimensional. This is an author to watch and I've added her to my must read authors list.
