I finally got around to reading this one. OMG! Are you sure this is her debut novel? Because it is extraordinary. I'll admit I didn't care for the first chapter about an older man and a runaway teenager, and then the second chapter with the rape of an 8 year old was a huge turnoff. Although neither of these storylines were told in real time I found it disturbing and put it aside. I came back to it this weekend. And I'm so glad I did. It picked up speed and when it started putting the men and eventually the women together I had an ah ha moment and couldn't put it down. It says Master Marcus' book is due out in September. WHEN!? I'm dying for it as well as the others.
