-Interesting premise.
-Completely pretentious writing.
-Needs more editing.
-Kept my interest/read it quickly, but I found it forgettable and doesn't stand out at all.
-May pick up sequel. I don't know yet. ( )

What a wild ride through internal hell. That was the first half of the book. I was irritated, screaming at her in parts to shut up, shut up, shut up, shut up.....! The first half was crazy town inside her head, and it was most her. There were more than a few moment when I wanted to quit reading it. it was so depressing and heartbreakingly painful to watch her inner pain. Watching her loneliness and solitude and it's effects was horrifying.

The second half had other people, more voices more drama. the first half made the second half potent without the inner dialog of semi crazy it would not have worked as well as it did. Where there was no hope in the first half there are bits and pieces of it in the second. It was still crazy, still had me screaming but for different reasons. Hope was gifted out, killed, gifted out, killed, seemed completely hopeless then....

I didn't love it, but I liked it, need to know what happens with Warren/Adam and everyone. I was left dangling with the tension and interruptions. Then BAM it ended with a cliffhanger. ( )

I was in love with this book from the cover and first few chapters. Then I realized this author was not very good at writing a story. ( )

I really liked the writing.and this story started so interesting. I was in hopes of something more psychological than paranormal and was a bit disappointed by the resolution and set up for he next part. ( )

Epigraph
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
and that has made all the difference.
--Robert Frost, "The Road Not Taken"
Dedication
For my parents, and for my husband,
because when I said I wanted to touch the moon
you took my hand, held me close,
and taught me how to fly.
First words
I’ve been locked up for 264 days.
