I'm not sure what genre I would file this one under, it kind of hinted at horror but then didn't quite get there for me. There was some mystery to it in regards to the serial killer but that's not really what the storyline centred around till later in the book. I would probably class it more psychological dark(ish) fiction, for me anyway.
The plot wasn't predictable at all, there were times I thought maybe I knew where it was going but it went in a different direction. I couldn't really connect with the characters, I'm not sure why. I think perhaps I didn't find any of them likeable as they all had faults in one way or another, there was no clear good guys/bad guys and I don't feel like I really got to know any of them. That being said, I still enjoyed it and wanted to know what happened. I couldn't have predicted the ending at all, which is always a good thing in my opinion. The pacing was pretty good although it felt a little slow to start with and the plot held my interest as it was unique and unpredictable. There was one part that confused me, now that I know how it all ends I'm confused as to who (and how) the youngest daughter was talking to but I can't really explain that here without giving away spoilers.
I'm not a fan of the cover, I know we shouldn't judge a book by it's cover but this one wouldn't have caught my attention and made me curious enough to read the blurb.
James is not your normal teenager nor is his twin sister. They are being raised by overly religious parents who tell them what to think. To exercise your free will and right to decide your own belief system would be considered a sin worthy of death. His father is the leader of the Doomsday Church which is more like a cult. He has developed rituals such as psycho-analysis with he calls “inverted Freudeanism” and other rules that he demands the family and followers lives by. His wife has taken on the blind submissive role to the point he tells her pretty much everything she needs to think and feel. For me God was pretty much invisible in his actual beliefs and practice and control over his family is what ruled his actions.
So what happens when the life James grew up with clashes into the reality of the Devil, hell and his own human desires? That is what this story is all about. With the addition of a serial killer being active in the London area, we find that the nightmares that James lives with about killing his family could be fueled by more than his deep seeded resentment that he keeps shoving down in his soul. He is even confronted with emotions towards his twin sister that would clearly destroy his world but what is driving him to have these thoughts and emotions? Is there really a satanic force set free in this world to do damage and destroy lives?
The ending will literally send you reeling. I could only sit and repeat the word WOW over and over again as I finished the last 20% of the book. It is one you won’t want to miss out on if you love this kind of book. The characters were so well developed and ranged from all aspects of society that it would be difficult in my opinion to not be able to connect with some and have strong emotions about others. The author brings the world of the unknown to life for us and dips us into the dark levels we all try to avoid. The scene development was more difficult than normal for me to visualize but I believe that is due to the vocabulary and style the author used. It wasn’t even close to being unpleasant, just proved this was not a book you can just skim through, you must pay attention to every word, sentence and page so you don’t miss a single second of this story.
If you enjoy taking on a dark and twisted read then you will be pleased with this book. It is not intended for readers who want a fluffy, light read with a little suspense; this is what I would consider a literary horror movie that feeds the thrill seeker in us. Make sure you get your copy of this book and be prepared to remember this story for a long time.

Now, am I overwhelmed? Yes! I am!
But I can't give more of the story. Spoilers would simply spoil this brilliant piece of work. There are just some things I would like to add ---
1) It's dark and immoral, so to speak and it has graphic depictions of some violent scenes. If these things put you off, this masterpiece is not for you. But if you don't read it, you are undoubtedly missing out. This innovative book actually should appear on the top 10 bestseller lists!
2) God is a voyeur who needs counselling.
3) Satan is just a straight-forward man, betrayed by destiny in the past.
4) These two characters complete each other and the whole. I can't say more.
Now, should we buy and read it?
Well, my answer is, "Yep, I think I can safely assure you that we're going to Hell."
