Let me preface this to say I am not a fan of horror, and there are definitely aspects of that in this book. It is not done gratuitously, and is in fact, necessary to the telling of the story.
The depth of the characters was by far the best part of the read for me. In the first pages we learn some disturbing things about our main character David. Yet somehow, Ackerman takes us on a journey that makes the reader want to know more about him and makes him truly engaging. There were revelations and moments that will keep the reader riveted. This was never an easy read but was definitely an interesting one. The mental health issues portrayed were done with a deft hand. It could have easily gotten bogged down but Ackerman was able to keep the narrative moving.
I was a little disappointed in how the book was resolved. The romance was done very well. The paranormal resolution was less successful for me and kept it from being a five star read. Overall, this was a book I probably would not have chosen for myself, and I would have missed out.
