This book was sent to be by Head of Zeus in exchange for a fair and honest teview.
The beginning of the book starts slowly, with fragmented pieces of Jenny’s past interwoven with the present day. It took a while to get used to this storytelling method, as it wasn’t clear for a while as to what was happening, as just as I thought I understood what was going on the narrative changed, however that is actually one of the strong points of the book. Jenny is remembering and memories are fragmented and unclear, as the story progress and the plot unfolds Jenny’s memories become clear and her reaction to them believable as she slowly remembers and comes to terms with the events that led to her blindness.
The plot twists and turns at an extreme pace, then will slow enough for you to get your breath back before hurtling off again.
Well written characters with realistic backstories and problems, a fantastic description of how Jenny learnt to navigate the world again as a blind person and a brilliantly constructed plot, this is a great book for a cold winter night and would make an excellent present for the person who loves an exciting thriller.
