Review So as you guys may know from reading my reviews I am not that good at summarising a plot so I am not going to try as I have included the summary from Goodreads above.

I don't know where to begin, I was really excited to start reading this and I am glad I picked it up. At first when I started reading this I wasn't sure whether or not I was going to like it. The start was a little slow and a tad confusing however this all change very quickly and I ended up loving it, hence the 5 stars.

The two main characters were Kate Harker and August Flynn were great. I loved that Kate was cool, feisty and at times not afraid to say it how it is. On the otherhand I loved August because you got to see a vunrability and kindness and at times I felt sorry for him especially after what happens nearer the end. ( if you have read this you will know why).

I always love books with anything paranormal and this ticked every box. It opened doors to three different types of Monsters, The Corsai, the Malchai, and the Sunai. The Sunai were my favourite and again if you have read this you could understand why. The ending blew me away and it was left on a cliff hanger so I need the next one as soon as it comes out. Overall a very good, thrilling and exciting read.
