Absolutely captivating. It’s a very dark, rich story, and the character development is outstanding. Caleb is NOT a “good guy,” but the way Roberts moves between Caleb’s third person POV, Livvie’s first person POV, and flashback POVs of both characters is brilliant and makes you understand how they (especially Caleb) have gotten to be who they are and why they act the way they do. I was enthralled by the characters and the story in a way I haven’t been in a long while and I devoured it in three hours. I cannot WAIT for part two to be released.
Just a disclaimer for some: be aware this book contains a great deal of violence, a lot of which is sexual in nature. If you don’t think you can or want to handle that, don’t read it.
