It's taken a while for me to write a review on this book. I have never read a book this dark, torture filled, at times for me horrific. That being said once I started I could not put it down. Yes it's very graphic and violent but it flowed and without it all it would not have been as captivating. This is a story that will leave you with mouth gaping and heart breaking but also give you a longing to know what happens between Tess and Q. Remarkable!
