In the aftermath of a blood transfusion that saved her life, Kara feels different. Her senses are stronger ... she can hear whispered comments not meant for her ears ... she can hear the person following her.
When Jack, her stalker, reveals himself and insists that Kara has something that belongs to him, she does her best to avoid him. But he’s determined to talk to her, convinced that they’re linked through the blood she received during her transfusion.
Jack is struggling against a dark and dangerous demon. His body is host to the evil power that wants Kara’s blood and will stop at nothing to get it, but when Jack himself is able to regain control he tries to warn her away. Can Kara save Jack without risking her own life?
This was a medium pace read for me and I got sort of bored at some parts, but overall it was still good.
The characters for me weren't developed too good. I needed more from Kara besides feeling sorry towards her. I wish she was a bit more spunky and sassy despite what she had gone through. I didn't understand the setting too much and felt lost at times.
The multiple POV's was pretty cool in some aspect, but could have been developed a bit better for me.
Despite the above, the action was pretty good and the paranormal aspects kept me wanting to know more about this book up until the end.
Caroline Healy did a good job with this book and I'm looking forward to reading more work from her.
