I absolutely loved this, right until the end. Where I didn’t.
There was a surprise twist, which I didn’t see coming – which was great. BUT the “who” didn’t make sense to me. Everything else was fantastic, I just couldn’t get my head around that one “little” thing.
The pacing was brilliant, I was on the edge of my seat for a long time. The characters were built up so you cared, leaving you holding your breath in places in fear of something bad happening. The supporting cast grew and developed, planting seeds of doubt with the wondering who is responsible, and then the twist… *sigh*
