It starts out fairly well, with what seem to be interesting characters. But they are never really developed. All the characters are fairly one dimensional and nobody shows any growth until the very end, and then it's pretty much only one person.
I usually love psychological thrillers, which is what I thought that this was going to be. It's not. I've also seen it listed as a horror novel. It's not that either. It's just violent and weird. By the time the unicorn and giant rats show up....by the way, where was that unicorn for so long?, I was totally over this mess of a plot.
The ending was just that. It ended. There was no real rhyme or reason to any of it, just a bizarre story that goes nowhere then someone puts up a stop sign and that's it.
There are no descriptions, and instead of enthralling the reader in a story and characters it’s more of an idea vomit.
“So there was a lady who wanted to adopt a child and she went into the place where they keep kids for adoption and she a girl and adopted her. They went home but then they had an argument and the woman didn’t want the child anymore so she hit her over the head, but the child didn’t die and they hated each other ever since.”
I swear! I’m now a Willow Rose author. Only I put a small amount of thought into what I was reading.
Only buy this trash if you’re trying to teach someone a lesson about using your ereader without asking.

A little girl is in care, and they are looking for a foster home for her, the trouble is nobody wants her. She doesn't talk or engage with her peers, she has trouble, injury and death surrounding her wherever she is placed.
A woman Marie Therese agrees to foster her, she already ha s two foster children and another one won't make much difference, indeed, she is only doing it for the money. She treats her foster children with indifference, the eldest child , thirteen year old girl, does every thing around the house , cooks cleans and looks after the a little boy, also a foster child. Enter Edwina, and, the horror begins!!!
A brilliant read.
It's nice this author gives so many of her stories away free and I really enjoyed the first Rebecca Franck story by her and I have the first Emma Frost to try, too, but this one was just not for me.
Marie-Therese soon realises that this child has more than the usual ones of a child in care, and her hated religious upbringing soon has her praying and making the sign of the cross when she's near Edwina - before long, she's begging the priest to help her.
Meanwhile, we learn about the Marie-Therese's other foster daughter, and the new neighbours - but very little about Edwina herself. These stories about the other characters all combine and set up a pretty scary (and a bit gruesome) conclusion.
But that is where, for me, the story collapsed and failed totally to satisfy me. Willow Rose's style of writing had made me actually feel for her characters, even Edwina - I wanted her demons to be exorcised, for her to be able to be a happy little girl. Marie-Therese had gone from being a pretty odious woman who cared more about money than the children in her care to someone who'd found her maternal side, and wanted to make amends for her previous dismissive treatment of them, especially Ida, who is another little girl that I actually cared about, after learning of her difficult start in life.
I was on edge, I was a little repulsed and quite a bit jittery - and then (**SPOILER**) a magic unicorn comes in, saves the day - and ruins the story. Yes, this unicorn does tie in with some of the things we've previously learnt, but it was such a weak ending, as if Willow Rose just couldn't be bothered anymore. A huge disappointment after an enjoyable read.
