Clara's relationship with Christian is intense from the start, and like nothing she’s ever experienced before. But what starts as devotion quickly becomes obsession, and it's almost too late before Clara realizes how far gone Christian is—and what he's willing to do to make her stay.
Now Clara has left the city—and Christian—behind. No one back home has any idea where she is, but she still struggles to shake off her fear. She knows Christian won't let her go that easily, and that no matter how far she runs, it may not be far enough....
I had heard nonstop raving reviews for this book and could not resist picking it up myself. So, I ordered it and picked it up right away once it arrived on my doorstep.
I was very disappointed with this book. After all of the wonderful reviews I expected something really good. I expected to be captured from the start and my emotions played with with every page turn. In reality I got okay characters and not much connection.
The characters in this book were not that great. In all honesty I forgot what their names were until I re-read the summary just minutes ago. I don't know if it was because they weren't characterized enough or just that they were not characters I personally like
The whole plot idea was creative. I had not read a book about this topic before and that is another reason why I decided to pick this one up. I feel like I should have been constantly worrying like the main character and had somewhat of an interest. I didn't really feel a connection with the characters or their story though.
I don't like writing bad reviews, honestly. I know that someday the author might read this and I feel awful because if I was them I would be somewhat sad. Even so, I always promise to write my honest reviews and honestly this one was not good to me.
Overall I do not recommend this book.
