I received this book as part of the ARR Program through Goodreads. This book reads like many runaway trains speeding to a terror filled collision at the station. Many characters, their pasts and presents blend into the current day happenings of a small town in the south. Ghosts, Voodoo curses, intense prejudice and hatred boil and seethe into a portrait of intense horror, revenge and death. This small town takes power, greed, corruption and hatred to a supernatural Don't read it alone during a storm.
Incredible! This book grabbed me! Free from the ARR Program, I read it because it seemed interesting...I found a great adventure. What would happen if I was snatched out of my life and placed elsewhere? How would I survive? Chiyo wasn't anyone special but somehow she was destined for more. Sadie S. Forsythe is an incredible writer using marvelous language that evokes feeling of deep insight into each character. She tells a story with extraordinary detail and depth. This is a book I wont forget.
I received this book for free through the goodreads ARR program and I must say it is a fantastic book. Intelligent use of references to "Atlas Shrugged" by Ann Raynd make it a possible sequel to the world begun in her novel. The author presents us with a fantastic dystopian world created when government fails and "The Corporation" and capitalism rules the world. Everything has a "price" and people are valued only for what they can provide or produce. Even the body can be used in death to pay debts accumulated in life. BRILLIANT!
