There was one thing about it that bothered me the most. There was a constant change in perspective, from first-person, second-person, to third-person point-of-views. It should have stayed as one type of narrative, but switches from character to character. There was also weird attempt to integrate an epistolary element into the book as well, which I think, did not make much sense for this type of book. I believe a better effect could have been produced if the author just stuck to one narrative perspective. The author could have stuck to the epistolary style or stuck to one of the narrative POVs.
Overall, it was a great read and I believe, with time, the books that follow will just get better.
At once gruesome and beautifully haunting, Larsell's first novel has just the right amount of sex and violence. While not for squeamish readers, these gritty, steamy scenes compliment, rather than distract from the story.
Aside from a few minor editing glitches, this is a powerful work from a new author to watch.
I especially like the use of the past to show the reader how the current characters came to be who/what they are. However, I feel the changes in perspectives and style throughout detracts from the flow of the book.
Overall, it was an enjoyable read and I hope to see more from this series.
