This gripping story pulls you in from the first page and doesn’t let go. Crow has a masterful way with words, each scene is well developed and immersive. I felt like I could step into the story, terrifying as it was. The characters are very well developed, especially Helena. She’s the intelligent capable hero, the only one who has a chance of pulling through in such desperate situations.

While some cannot appreciate the descriptive writing style, I have to say that it painted a perfect picture. Like a horror movie with soothing classical music in the background but then the sound becomes more intense in the right places and makes you jump or squirm because you didn’t expect what was coming next, right there on the pages in black and white.

Marie F. Crow has an outstanding writing talent and a unique voice to her novel. The introverted thoughts, along with the fabulous descriptive writing kept me tied into the story from the moment I started. I felt how the characters felt, I smelled what the characters were smelling. Marie has an unbelievable talent for involving all 5 senses into her writing that few authors today do.
