I really tried getting into this book but I found myself not disinterested but just not getting the hang of it. It is written beautifully with twists and turns every few pages but there was just something about it that I couldn't get a grip on. I apologize to C. Cook since she went to the trouble of sending me a digital copy, but I have to say what I think. If you are a diehard horror and sci-fi fan, give this book a shot. Maybe that is what I was missing - no real tie to these kinds of books.
