“Cecelia and Sebastian have a connection like no other – more than just brother and sister, they’ll go to any lengths to protect each other. Growing up in a bleak old farmhouse, their mother gone and their father violent and abusive, the twins have only each other to keep them alive.
But when the secrets of their mother’s disappearance start to emerge, and truth and lies are thrown into question, events take a terrifying turn . . .
As Cecelia tries to break away from the ties that bind her to her brother, Sebastian is determined that the twins should be together – whatever the costs.”
This was an incredibly creepy and dark book right from the first page, with such a powerful sense of foreboding throughout. Nearly every character was so intense that I expected there to be a traumatic scene on every page. I don’t think I’ve read a book that made me feel this uncomfortable before, so if that’s what you like definitely add it to your stack. Overall this felt more like a horror story because of the sense of dread all the way through, rather than just a psychological thriller.
Thanks to Carmen at Bonnier Zaffre Books for the advanced copy.
