I’m the daughter of murdered parents.I’m the friend of a dead girl.

And I will have my revenge.

This book seriously hooks you in and doesn't let go!

It's a very addictive read, I just had to know what really happened on that ship and to see Frances' plan in action. The beginning is very strong and emotional. Frances experiences something very traumatic and makes some tough, life changing decisions, but it makes for a wonderful story.

Frances is so sure of her plan when it goes into action, but she soon finds out that it's harder than she thought. It was an emotional and thought-provoking experience to see her facade fade and to see her come to terms with the person she's become.

I just wish there was more of an ending to the story. It is slightly open-ended which does fit the type of book it is, but I wanted more of an epilogue. I felt the ending didn't live up to the excitement of the beginning.
Overall, this story is a great mix of entertaining mystery as well as emotional elements of self-identity and loss. Frances is a multidimensional character and the plot never slows.

  1. The books seem to have very thrilling topic. Usually people have survivor guilts when smething like this happens. But it sure seems worth a read.
