“All things truly wicked start from innocence.” – Ernest Hemingway 

I hear screams in my head. 
I see blood on my hands.
When I look in the mirror I see a stranger.

How is it that I can remember bits and pieces of my life, but nothing of any importance and nothing that makes any sense? Everything is twisted and nothing is right. I’m choking with every breath I take, suffocating on the unknown. 

Two days ago, everything changed. Two days ago, the people I should trust the most became strangers in my convoluted head. The dreams I have can’t be real. The fleeting memories that whisper through my mind are scary and wrong…they have to be. If they aren’t, I have something much worse to fear than my fractured mind. I need to find out the truth, even if it destroys me. 

I've been told my name is Ravenna Duskin. I’m eighteen years old and I live in a prison…

Before I can command my feet to move toward the shape—the safer of the two evils—I hear another sound in the opposite direction and foolishly turn my head. Something heavy and solid crashes against my skull and I feel myself falling. Darkness descends over me one last time, covering my eyes, clogging my ears and stealing the breath from my lungs. Nothing will ever be the same again.
Nothing will ever be good again.

It will all be bad.

I'm totally at a loss for words. Is there any genre Tara Sivec can't write well? I guess it just goes to show how talented of a story teller she is. This book completely took me by surprise. I knew going in it was dark, darker than anything Tara had written before, but I wasn't expecting anything like this. Don't get me wrong, the book is dark, but it's on that can't accurately be categorized. The story is full of mystery and suspense.

I was hooked from the opening pages. I wanted to know who was being chased in the dark and why. Ravenna Duskin is piecing together the puzzle of her identity. She doesn't know who she is. All she knows is that she woke up without her memory. Everyone is telling her one thing while her mind and body tell her another. It was fascinating trying to watch her put together all of the pieces. I tried to do the same, however I wasn't as good as she was at finding out information.

When the truth was finally out, my jaw was on the floor. I would've never in a million years guessed the truth behind Ravenna's memory loss. It was really, truly disturbing, so I'd say Tara did a fine job at playing mind games with me. I will say this, if you're one of those people who likes to read the end before the beginning, DO NOT. It will ruin the entire book for you. I really can't say much more without ruining the book, so if you're in the mood for a story that slowly builds to a fantastic climax and will totally mess with your head, pick up this book!
