I knew going into this book that I would most likely not enjoy my read. (I skipped the Illumicrate for the month this book came in.) Unfortunately, the book met my expectation. Horror is not a genre that I enjoy. This book also had some flaws with the world-building and an unsatisfactory resolution.

This was weird, but thoroughly engaging with its escapism and strong world-building. The use of flashbacks and different timelines kept me turning the page and staying up to finish this book as I rooted for Cai, Jarrow, and Devon.

Unique take on the vampire character. First half was way too slow. I liked Devon and her devotion to her children under terrible circumstances.
