Alex has been locked up for years and when she’s finally released, she thinks it’s an opportunity to put the past behind her and get on with living her life. Within hours of settling into her new home with her brother trouble finds her and if it isn’t the bad boy Luka with his dangerous gypsy magic, then it is the fact that she’s concealing the madness that seems to be creeping back. The difference is that this time, Alex has friends who also have some pretty crazy secrets.
Alex is a complex character who doesn’t know or understand herself so her mysteries are unraveled slowly, much to the reader and the character’s surprise. Her past doesn’t just come back to bite her it barrels into her like a freight train and changes everyone’s lives which makes for a real action read.
I didn’t realise how much I enjoyed the story until I got to the end when the book hangover set in. Baker has a knack for hooking you in without you realising it so I can’t wait to read the next book.
