I received a free copy of Uninvited in return for the possibility of an honest review.
This is a suspenseful psychological thriller with several twists.
The protagonist is happy in his post-divorce life. Happy to have escaped from a cruel, torturous and disastrous marriage.
Who was at fault for the divorce seems obvious at first -- the psychopathic 'other' spouse.
But then tension builds as the protagonist and reader both question who was really the psycho at fault for the marriage breaking down.
I highly recommend this short book/long novella for adults and teens over age 14. (Those younger than this would probably find it boring.)
Darius and Allison get divorced, Darius giving up most of his net worth to his wife with a stipulation, a 2 year restraining order against her. During this time Darius amassed great wealth. As an Anthropologist he had written books which produced a series of movies.
Three years pass and then Darius encounters Allison Facebook and befriends her. This he does even though in the past a psychiatrist told him that Allison displayed sociopathic behavior and could pose a threat to him.
Darius and Allison rehash their past through messages on Facebook, Allison being apologetic and conceding that she was to blame for whatever happened in the past. After a weeks of Facebook they start texting on their phones. All this time Darius assures himself that she is a changed person. Pretty soon they meet at a restaurant, talking about their past, Allison being apologetic and contrite. They leave the restaurant together to go to Darius's home.
Here things take a turn, they arrive at Darius's house but Allison does not enter. She requests Darius to invite her into her home and this is where Darius gets suspicious of her intentions.
Darius does not invite her in and, Allison becomes a whole different person, enraged beyond reason. She concedes that she is a vampire. She believes that she and Darius are soulmates, meant to be together.
A lot of monologue between the two of them, he inside the house she outside the house. They bring up the past , Allison trying to let him know that they're meant to be together and this is how it should be.
Darius knows that she is not a changed person , she's crazy and she is a vampire.
I found reading this quite tedious. It started well, arousing my curiosity, but the story didn't really seem to be going anywhere. It was like reading the ramblings from a smutty teenage imagination. The ending was a bit of a non event. There didn't seem to be a final outcome.
