Inhaltsangabe

The second novel in the new, gripping supernatural thriller series from international best-selling author Jodi Taylor.

From the frying pan into the fire....

Betrayed, terrified and alone, Elizabeth Cage has fled her home. With no plan and no friends, she arrives at the picturesque village of Greyston and finds herself involved in an ages-old ceremony that will end in death.

And that might be the least of her problems - the Sorensen Institute would very much like to know her whereabouts. And Michael Jones is still out there, somewhere, she hopes. No matter how far and how fast she can run, trouble will always find Elizabeth Cage.

Not something I could stand till the end

The first of this new series fell a bit flat, but this one is just really, really bad.

The story is convoluted - which might be alright.
But it is hard to follow this very, very stupid Main character through her misadventures. I kept asking myself if the author really believes that women are this stupid in general or if she actually thinks that the motif of a helpless/stupid women with some stubbornness combined with an overcompetent, calm, perfect guy is all that is needed for "romance" and that her novel might sell as such?!

Since other things seem far out of her competence here (while in other books there is humor and knowledge), she adds two other factors: brutality always dialed up to 11 (try going on for a while without rape, group rape or psychological terror from groups of mainly women) and ideas stolen from mythology without any good feeling for these or taste in arranging them.


Even the writing style is disappointing: everything is "suddenly" realized by the protagonist and always explained twice: once by what is happening and how people are reacting and then again by the protagonist, making slow sense of the world.

I hope that the last third of this would reveal that the story is actually about a woman loosing her mind instead of a woman stumbling through mythological ideas - still bad, but less idiotic.


The performance is quite good - but that really can't save the book.
I regret buying it and spending time trying to like it.
