Kala and Chris – alternate narrators of this story are ex-fiancées – Kala works for ‘The Company’, often as an assassin, other times just as a medium of evil; and Chris is dead.
If I had purchased this book, rather than it being a gift from the author, I may have given up on the story after the first few chapters as there were several ‘WTF?’ moments and I felt very disconnected from the characters and events.
However, continuing to read became a stimulating and emotional experience and I stayed up way past my bedtime in order to finish the book!
For a début author Mia Hoddell writes with maturity and depth and takes her reader on an unexpected journey which becomes warped with violence and evil. Yet still Miss Hoddell encourages us to see the humanity and heart of a character who is fatally flawed.
One tip though to anybody who will be reading ‘The Sheol’ . . . .ensure you have ‘The Flawless on hand to start straight after!
