Goodreads Synopsis:

Visions of decapitated corpses, pools of blood, and a masked executioner have haunted Evey for as long as she can remember. Torn between a life in the waking world and dreams of the dead, she realized her normal existence is nothing more than an illusion. As the veil between reality and her subconscious dissipates, she begins to question her own sanity. Each night as she closes her eyes, wonders what wrongs she committed to warrant such a curse. 

When a handsome stranger suddenly appears in Evey's life, he is able to provide her with the answers she seeks. However, the only thing more mystifying than Conrad's appearance is one of her nightmares is the undeniable attraction she feels for him. It is only when he confesses their fates and souls have been intertwined for centuries that an ancient secret is revealed. Now, the two of them must outrun a darkness or it will claim their lives again.

Book Review:
Pre-reading Thoughts:

This book not only looks interesting but it sounds interesting as well. I am excited to see what this ancient secret is. I have an idea of course but I am intrigued to see what take the author has on certain things. As always. I am so excited to jump into this new read!

Thank you so so much to Xpresso Blog Tours for this opportunity. I am extremely grateful. Thank you for the copy of the book! Just a quick thing to note; I have received this book at no costs of my own in exchange for an honest review. With that being said, please note that in no way has receiving this book affected my opinions. All thoughts are my own.

Writing Thoughts:

The author's writing style isn't bad. She has a pretty average and probably what can be considered normal writing style. She provides just enough detail for things to be interesting but not too much for it to be overly descriptive and a heavy to read. I just felt like there was nothing special about her writing.

Plot Thoughts:

This book had so much potential and the synopsis was so good. Unfortunately I just couldn't ready it any more so I DNFed it at 36%. And that makes me so sad. I was so intrigued but this book and couldn't wait to see how everything would unfold, but it seems like fate had another idea.

Character Thoughts:

I couldn't get over Evey's character. One minute she was all for Conrad and completely understanding and the next he disgusted her and she couldn't wrap her head around why he was doing what he was doing even though he just kept telling her the truth. Evey is supposed to be this book smart individual and I saw no evidence of this overtime she spoke. Like great you can pull a fancy word out of hat but you can't understand a simple I am here to protect you from a guy who wants to have you all to himself and he is evil. Like honey, accept the help that you can get, and frankly need, and move on. It isn't that difficult to understand to get behind

Final Thoughts:

Overall, I thought this book had potential and still does but I can't get past Evey. She just made this okay story infuriating. Thank you to Xpresso Book Tours for providing me with a copy of this book. 

Yours in Reading,

Melleny
