Publisher's Summary

When Ella is mysteriously attacked on her way home from a party, her entire life changes as she finds herself at the center of an attempted murder investigation.

Ella tries to move on, but her attacker isn't done yet. He shows himself in the form of horrifying signs and symbols: a clown mask strewn on her bed, a dead bird in her backpack, a shadow moving past her window in the night. And as the weeks pass, it turns out that Ella isn't the only one being tormented.

With the help of an old flame, Jensen Carver, and her friends and family, Ella tries to attain some sense of normalcy, but she can't seem to shake the feeling that there's a dark pattern hidden in the killer's every move. Suddenly, even those in her innermost circle seem suspicious. In her seemingly safe West Virginia town, Ella starts to wonder who she can trust

Needed a different narrator

The story was pretty good, I didn't feel like it was one of her best books though. However, the narrator was rough. she really had a hard time with making other voices.

Great Horror, Bad Twist

Spoilers Ahead; The first time I listened to this book, I honestly loved the horror. The first attack truly terrified me and I was super excited to keep listening. and truthfully, this book was well written. The horror sequences were good, I spent so much time trying to figure out who the killer was(and if the killer was even a real person or paranormal), and I definitely fell into the bait traps the author kept putting out. And then... the ending. Sigh. The final ending is fine, but there's not really closure. Two murderers, one is her ex boyfriend/best friend and there are NO HINTS about it. Like, yeah, he acts jealous about her having a new boyfriend(this book is pretty romance heavy but thats fine, I think the horror was the best part) but he never once acts like a psycho killer then all of a sudden, at the very end, SURPRISE! He's the killer and his reasons are...?? He's mentally screwed up? okayyyy?? Then he dies, and there is literally a conversation after that where the main character and her love interest basically say "We'll never know why he did it, he took it to the grave" like???? THANKS. IM GLAD THE MOTIVE IS HES CRAZY??? I wished the motive was guilt, that he felt bad for killing their friend and it crushed him and he saw how it crushed the others. so he makes the bullies pay then kills her to "save her" from the guilt. but no, we never get an actual reason behind the two killers(again, out of left field) other than they're both unhinged.

the horror was fantastic, if you like horror and romance, definitely a decent read. but the ending is lacking.

as for the voice, she's fine. I mean, she can't act a male voice at all, but you get used to it and, honestly, same.

Disappointed

Unfortunately I felt it to be predictable. I've heard better from both author & actress.

You won’t be able to stop reading.

This is a great mystery with a even better ending and a wonderful romance. I thought I knew who did it until the very end and there was a really good ending.

Dead list

When I began to read and I found the book was not about Fae, Angels, or other supernaturals I felt a twinge ok a big twinge of disappointment.
I soon found myself literally on edge with fear. I had to over look the fact they were mere mortals. She is an amazing murder mystery writer.

Expected better from Jennifer L Armentrout

This was ok. I listened to the whole thing and vaguely enjoyed it but I really did expect more from Jennifer L Armentrout.

The romance was shallow to me and I found myself not caring very much (unlike me because usually that's what I'm here for!). The mystery wasn't much of a mystery because there was only two possible people it could be. The reasoning didn't make much sense to me either.

I thought the narrator did a great job with the main character but her male voices ruined it a little bit for me

It was ok and but unfortunately not much more...

Great story, so so narrator.

I loved the story, great twist at the end. The narrators voice of several characters was terrible though, namely the guidance counsellor and various parents. The relationship with Jensen was beautifully written.
