✮ My Review ✮
Happy Publication Day Stuart!! ???
Wow, this man can terrify the life out of me. The whole book I felt on edge and wound up so tight. I was flinching at some of the more torturous scenes. Man, this book is dark but it’s the kind of book I (so perversely) love!
The second foray with Mr James and it is safe to say I will read anything he writes. It just blows me away! This time I had kinda guessed the “twist” so to speak but I didn’t care because when the characters did it was shocking. I have so many unanswered questions though about this book!!! I can not settle and I think I need a shower to scrub the darkness and insanity off!!
This book reminded me of a film, but I can’t say what film because as it will ruin it for you, all I will say it has trains and a robbery ? try guessing it from that…no more clues!
Ok, so Apartment 6, is so incredibly tense! You have a then and now scenario (I mean who doesn’t love these!), it is 20 years before the phone call and present day. What I will say, don’t believe everything you read! I was so shocked with the past but once I had read that, I knew where we were going on this adventure. Characters are made into pawns in a chess match and it’s not until that last move they realise it’s checkmate!
Meagan, man she has not had the easiest of upbringings with her mum and dad, god did my heartbreak for her. It was all the bad words you can think of, horrifying, dark, terrifying…words I use on repeat!
In the present day, we catch up with her and it seems like history is repeating itself but this time there is Oliver. Poor, naive Oliver, obsessed and in love, but again we don’t know him as well as we like to think! I do love how he doesn’t bat an eyelid too much when he discovers what is being asked of him!!! Wake up! I love the surprise after surprise. It’s easy to settle into this book thinking you know everything because let me tell you…you don’t! What you have been told may not necessarily be the truth..and I freaking loved it!
I think I need a light and fluffy after devouring that book! It has shocked me to the core and chilled my bones! If this was a movie, so many scenes would make me want to look away, and for god sake don’t read the bit about guinea pigs!!! This book is a brutal one, it’s not for the faint-hearted but it’s one to sink your teeth into and swear a lot at the kindle!
Another winner by Mr James, I need the time to go back and read his other two books. Well, once I have unwound my hand from the kindle as it kinda aches now from clenching it so tight!!
Until next time xxx
