I've not read any other Emma Frost books and I won't. She isn't a believable character. She doesn't act like people really do. If my teenage daughter calls me to say that a classmate sent her an email saying he murdered someone for her and giving an address, I'm calling the police, not checking it out myself. And then the police didn't seem to mind that she was there tampering with their crime scene instead of calling them. Then, she goes home and pours herself a drink and then basically says "oh no! I need to cook dinner for everyone!" and then does. Like "la-dee-dah, a murdering teenager is obsessed with my daughter and slit a guy's throat and I found the body, but I really need to make a lasagna now!" Or how about when she discovers someone broke into their house in the night and killed their dog and put it in a cookpot on the stove to boil? Apparently, the thing people do is to bury the dog and not tell anyone? And then not even move your house key when you figure out that it was someone known to your family dogs? Me, I would have not touched anything and would have called the police so they could look for fingerprints or evidence or try to find the person who was obviously threatening my family.
I finished the book, but it really wasn't very good and I won't read any more of these books because they're not remotely believable. There are many better series of books in this genre, I wouldn't waste my time if I were you.
However, Ms Willow Rose is now on my list of readable authors and I will be reading more of this series.
The book started going off the rails near the end. All of a sudden it felt like a different writer had taken over, and I found I could no longer believe anything that was happening. Suddenly there's a cannibal, a mysterious doctor, sloppy writing and a sudden race by the author to wrap up the story. And by the way, I don't think a head trauma turns a person autistic or a "retard."
I doubt I will be reading any more of her books.
Personally, I found almost all of the adult characters (with the exception of Jonna, Sophia, Morten, and Per) deplorable. What amazes me is that Lisa gets away with absolute murder because of the assassination attempt she orchestrated. The only reason I don't despise Per outright is because of his sad story.
As I read this, I was curious about the name "Per." Upon looking up the name, is discovered it is the Scandinavian equivalent of "Peter." I wanted to question why the author chose to give two of the Larsen brothers the same name, especially since Peter is a few years older than Per. Maybe the author is unaware, but it's an oversight that is kind of annoying.

The author's ideas, titles and covers are always a draw. I think she really knows how to market what the public are looking for and comes up with ideas according to current markets. But this can result in there being very little substance to the characters and I found those in this book to be dull and interchangeable. I couldn't bond with any of them, apart from Brutus the dog - whose habit of sitting and staring probably stems from the same bewilderment I was experiencing.
All the strength is in the beginning of this book but it becomes clear as you read on that the author is running out of steam. I could feel her disinterest as Slenderman came to a close. It became disjointed, immature and at times ridiculous. Emma's reaction to finding her daughter's dog with its throat cut and stuffed in a cooking pot was absurd. Would you really not search the house for the culprit who might still be in there, or at least get the kids out of the house? Wouldn't you get the locks changed? Would you really tell your daughter that it's ok - we'll go get another one, like the dog was a pair of shoes or something?
The constant reference to the title 'The Numerologist drove me mad. 'The Numerologist did this -- the Numerologist did that.' It's so unnecessary.
Instead of being shown the tying up of the loose ends we were told in recap form in one big info dump at the end. It just felt like the author wanted to hurry up and get it out so she could start something else.
I understand the author has a large list of titles to her name, in fact 25% of this book is adverts for her others, but you can't just keep banging them out - good writing isn't a race.. You have to slow down a bit and think of the quality.
Then my grandson explained.
I did find it difficult to get into at the start.Then I really enjoyed it.
Twists and turns in all directions , I got muddled at times.But I was determined to finish the book.
Really glad I did.
This is the second book I have tried by this author .Having found the first one tedious, but seeing all the good reviews thought I would give her another go .
Still tedious ,gave up after 3 chapters .
Still you cant please everyone and a lot of people obviously enjoy her works .
