After becoming a huge fan of Ms Harris’ paranormal novels I really had to read everything I could find.
This novel is a simple gothic told in her style. It has little bit of southernisms that you expect from this multitalented author. The characters are crisp and intelligent and strong. The dark theme of rape and its effect on the women who suffer it is handled cleanly and well. Being set in the deep south like most of her novels this tale shows us the different ways that subcultures within our own deal with the victim.
I was actually both surprised and happy at how she dealt with the climax of this story. Whilethe subject matter is dark, this novel left me feeling content.
