This book was full of twists and surprises, as well as some very dark scenes. If you like dark stories of love, family, power, and redemption then I recommend this book. However, I will warn you that it is darker than some I have read before. I give this book a 3-star review, mostly because there was so much in it that I really had a hard time accepting. I realize this is a book, but it was farfetched in some places.
