Under ordinary circumstances, Ben and Mina would never have had reason to speak to each other; he's an easy-going people person with a healthy skepticism about the paranormal, and she's a dangerously obsessive monster-hunter with a crippling fear of betrayal. But the small town of Prospero, California, has no ordinary circumstances to offer. In order to uncover a plot set by the seemingly innocent but definitely shapeshifting monsters-that-look-like-friends-family-and-neighbors, the two stark opposites must both find ways to put aside their differences and learn to trust each other.
I received this book for free from Author Gifted in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Back a couple of months I received this book for a spotlight. The cover reveal can be seen here.
This book started one way, and finished completely different. I thought it was about someone kidnapping people, al la serial killer, etc. But no the truth is a lot darker and much more widespread than one would think.
Ben, a young man normally would not have talked to Mina other than the fact that one of the missing girls shows back up during her funeral. When Mina tells Ben that there is more to the story than just a reappearance they start digging. However, this digging not only caused more questions, but also put both Ben and Mina in danger. A danger that was not a normal danger, but something much more harmful than any kidnapper.
I enjoyed this book, the depths that the authors took the story was not what I initially expected and it was a good change. While I had a feeling where it was going to go, the rabbit hole was a lot deeper and more complex than I had ever thought. This book was a solid and I really enjoyed it.
