I read all night, nodding off once in a while in the early morning hours, and woke within a few minutes still clutching the book. 
I’m completely speechless. This book is unlike any I have ever read. It gripped me from the first page, and would not let go. In fact, still won’t let go. I am compelled to read book 2 in the trilogy immediately. Even writing this review feels like it’s taking too long and keeping me from starting the next book. I can’t imagine how this story continues, but I’m sure there will be more jaw dropping moments. How often do you have an out loud reaction to a book you’re reading? 
I don’t often have that happen, but this had me startle at my own voice saying: ‘OMG’, ‘Are you (bleep) kidding me?’, or gasp.
I’m completely speechless, and can’t put into words what this book does, but I can tell you it brought the strongest reaction to any book I’ve read in years. 
It’s a one of a kind author, an incredibly well written book, a very intelligent story, easy to read and spellbinding. I give this 10 out of 5 stars.
Now please excuse me while I download ‘Tooth For Tooth’, the second book in the series.
