Out of the list of books in the Inkitt library, this one caught my eye straight off the bat, The blurb is among some of the most intriguing in the genre, and I was magnetized instantly. I've been watching a lot of crime documentaries as of recently and have become increasingly drawn to the study of the human psychology; therefore a fiction of this sort was already up in my field of preferences.

This story hooked me from the first chapter. It was vague yet interesting, I applaud the author for being able to imply just enough without giving away too much from the start.
I also fancy how light and digestible the writing was, making it incredibly practical for me to leaf through. The writing simply flows, and I loved the way the sentences drifted out my mouth as I recited--this is likely my favorite aspect of the story. I've already anticipated the story to revolve around faith from the beginning, given its blurb, but it didn't occur to me how it'd be to this extent. It has given me a lot of insight and a tinge of enlightenment, frankly. Matthew's thoughts and standpoint connected to me on a personal level.
There are moments when the light within the eyes are stripped away by fear and isolation. It's bound to happen to everyone at some point, The story puts an emphasis on that, with its comprehensive and thorough implication of each character. Moreover, It's my understanding that Teddy served as the embodiment of desolation and vengeance. It easily haunts those who are in grief, as implicated by the author.
Despite how much I connected to it, or rather it connected to me, I didn't like the plot as much. I must make clear that this is a matter of preference, but the story plot was too simple as for my liking. There were so many repetitions of statements that I didn't feel was necessary. Yet in overall, I really enjoyed this book.
