Jill's Reviews

An unflinching account of the kidnapping and imprisonment of these young women, held for a decade by a madman, Enduring unimaginable physical and psychological torture, they outlasted their tormentor and escaped to freedom. This is not a whitewashed version of their story. It is clear-eyed and deep.

From the author of Gone Girl, Dark Places is fascinating, complex thoroughly engaging story. It’s full of characters that are so broken and bizarre you can’t help but feel for them. Every time you think you have it figured out, believe me...you don’t! After the murder of her mother and sisters Libby Day testifies against her teenage brother, but did he do it? Or was he framed in the “satanic panic” frenzy of the 80’s? You won’t want to put this book down.

A very different post-apocalyptic vampire story. This is the second of the trilogy—returning to previous characters as well as introducing new ones. It’s an epic saga, intricately detailed and full of piercingly dramatic moments.  Be prepared to move back and forth in time, get to know and care about multiple characters, and be glad you can go out at night without being eaten!
