If you like religious and/or dystopian horror, you will EAT THIS BOOK ALIVE and go looking for more. (Luckily there is now a book two.)

Insanely well-written fiction, with amazing world-building, that manages to be a killer novel but also brings in themes of reproductive rights, body agency, and other social topics.

Also, I didn't see some of the twists coming, which for me, is a rare treat.

fingers crossed that this becomes a longer series!

The writing is bang-on, creating high tension and general feeling of dread, violence and wrongness in the town of New Temperance.

Nina is an awesome protagonist despite being one of those who take responsibility for everything herself, whether its required or not. Finn is open and cheeky and I love him for it.
