 My Review

*3 1/2 Roses*

Rated R (obviously lol)

Do you like evil? This is the perfect book for you.

Lisa is the kind of evil fans always love. Completely demented, addicted to chaos, and basically a completely unhinged psychopath. She's attractive, cunning, and puts Carrie to shame.

I enjoy thrillers, I really do. I enjoy scary movies around Halloween, and will pick up a scary book from time to time throughout the year. This one, will give me nightmares. For my mental health, I probably shouldn't have finished it. Lisa had me hooked though, and will haunt me for weeks.

My only reason for taking off a star and a half, is the fact the grammar and writing style were a bit rough. There were mistakes throughout, and it was distracting. However, since it kept me from getting too sucked in, maybe that's a good thing? For a published book, it needs to be edited and polished up though, so I do have to be fair.

If you can take getting into the mind of evil, give this book a shot. I'm sure you'll sleep with the lights on for a while.

*I was given a complimentary eCopy of this book, from the author, to read in exchange for an honest review.
