I have always liked V.C. Andrew's books especially the story lines and brooding atmosphere. She (and the writer who took over the job of writing her books) is one of the few authors that I will automatically read without knowing what the book is about.
When I requested this book, I didn't realize that it was a stand a lone novel and not the first in a series. Sage is a young teen who has been "protected" by her family to the point where she has been stifled and there are so many mysteries regarding her family and Sage herself.
The book does have the same kind of taboo story line and brooding atmosphere as previous V.C. Andrew books that slowly builds but the ending seems a bit unresolved and abrupt to me. I did enjoy the book but would love to see this expanded into a series. There are so many unanswered questions about Sage, her background, parents background, and an ex flame etc.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley for free in exchange for an honest review.
