My Review

While I generally don’t put in my review about the graphics for the book in this case I can’t help it as its so enthralling and I love the symbology of looking through the minds eye.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book. It had a lot of creepy parts which make you doubt your sanity.

The relations between Chris and Carin was interesting. Carin is emotionally closed off to many people well except to show anger or maybe it’s misplaced rage.

Chris seems to have the opposite effect. He is very open and shows a caring side and that he truly wants to make a difference.

What impressed me was the profession of the book and how fast paced it was. This is definitely one of my top books so far in 2018.
