Was it suicide or was it murder?  My Thoughts  Thank you so much to the author, NetGalley, and Sourcebooks Fire for a copy of this ARC in exchange for an honest review. I went into this book completely blind and was so surprised by this unique concept and how much I enjoyed this slow burn thrill!  So this book was definitely a slowwwwwww burn and at first I was hesitant to continue the read. I was very overwhelmed by all the characters and their conflicting stories and I just didn’t know what to think. It was…

The author would also release details little by little throughout the…

    Red Queen Review

    Summary Alice and Hatcher have ventured out from Old City and are on the path to happily ever after, or so they thought. When they get separated in the woods, Alice will learn how to save herself and those that she loves.  My Thoughts  This sequel was such an interesting twist to even the first book. I honestly thought that this book wasn’t going to have the same zip as the first because the first was just so outrageous, but I was wrong. This book was different from  Alice because it took that darkness and that drama and went into more depth with the main characters.  The setting of this…
