This book had the biggest creep factor that I have read about to date. It is overall just such a surprising story and just what people are truly like.
Probably one of the most interesting psychological thrillers that I have read in a long while. Truly has a great fear aspect as well as having a strong story. I think the character Grav was more of a small part of this he was still integral and has the ability to get people active and really jumping.
Ella is a side character that I truly felt would have been more entertaining had she been more of a major part. Showing both of the sisters would have made the story stronger in my opinion.
Mia was an interesting character and one that was where the story revolved around. I like the fact that she shows a lot of promise as well as being the person that could easily become a major character for these books. I think that she has more to tell and would love to see more of her.
