I received a free e-book from the author in exchange for a review. when I was first warned of the contain of the book for being gory and extreme, I underestimated the severeness of it. at more than one point, I found myself gagging, nauseous over the details of the book. but fortunately, it was far from enough to stop me from flying through the pages with anticipation, so completely intrigued. half way through the book, I found myself getting lost and was determined to drag myself through it. the pace wasn’t as smooth as I hoped for it to be, perhaps even a little too complicated to my likings. it felt like everything was all over the place, even my sanity was lost along the way. I was pleased to have hung onto the book until the very end, finally able to enjoy the beauty of it, however little there were.
