5.0 out of 5 starsDark but worth reading
Reviewed in Canada on August 8, 2019
A darker tale for a mature audience. It made me pause and contemplate after reading. There are allusions to torture, death, & medical experiments but it adds to the story, It makes one stop and think about the human condition. Started reading and couldn't stop reading.
5.0 out of 5 starsIf you focus deeper as you read this book, you will come away changed.

I absolutely loved this book. Many reviewers have already stated that this book is different than the authors other books and that is true. It still has her great writing, storyline and character building that one would expect from her. However, I recommend you read this book slower than other books you read and really pay attention to what is happening and why. If you do, I believe you will love this book also. The storyline and message had me almost crying toward the ending (not in a bad way) because I was so deeply involved with the book and my thoughts. If I could give more than five stars I would for this book.
I'm a big fan of C.S. Johnson!! This book is different from her normal fantasy writing and a little darker but I love it. Milo is another great character that I can see myself being that character in his world.
