"Mark said he heard the dark song when he creeped houses. The song the predator's heart sings when it hears the heart of the prey. I heard it now. Mark said it had always been in me. Lurking. Waiting for me to hear.
Ames is not the person she was a few months ago. Her father lost his job, and her family is crumbling apart. Now, all she has is Marc. Marc, who loves her more than anything. Marc, who owns a gun collection. And he'll stop at nothing--even using his guns--to get what he wants. Ames feels her parents have betrayed her with their lies and self-absorption, but is she prepared to make the ultimate betrayal against them?"

**My rating: 4 of 5 stars**

*My review*

This was a dark and edgy book, and took you on highs and lows with Ames. It was an adventure, and I would recommend reading it. The set-up and relationship are very realistic, and shows how easy it can be to just fall into a predator's grasp-- when you are searching for love and they make themselves so readily available.

I like how the younger sister Chrissy is written- she tells it like it is, and that is really needed sometimes. She is a breath of fresh air, and keeps the novel light at times when it needs a little relief.

Overall- if you like dark and twisting books, you should give this one a read!

I would love to hear what you think and if you have reviewed, feel free to link it and I will read and comment.


  1. Great review! I liked this book, and thought it was well worth the read. The dark and edgy was just so well done. You are right though, she sure got whiny sometimes :)

  2. I am actually quite curious about this book and have been for quite some time now. Haven't really seen many reviews of this one, but when I do get around to reading this, I'll be sure to let you know what I think of this one! Will be sure to take your comments into consideration when I get around to reading this.

  3. I love your style of reviewing! "Dark, twisting/edgy books" are probably not my thing, but I'm a sucker for realistic relationships in books. i'm glad you told the review like it is though!

    Thanks for the review and happy reading!
