Asylum by Lily White
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I'll just get right to it. What an anti-climactic ending for me..
Where was the twist?
Where was the mindfuckery?
I was actually waiting and guessing and excited to get to the end of this book.
I didn't *want* a HEA.. not from Lily or if it was a HEA I wanted it to be something that made me go.. "OMG! She did it to me again..."
But what she did to me was make me lay the book down and go... "ummm... meh."
I really felt like there was a big finish coming, but what I feel like I got was a rushed ending. Like Ms. White had to hurry and finish it with no time for her usual twists and turns.
The first 94% of the book was great, awesome in fact, as you can tell by my updates (see below) as I was reading. It had my mind going in all different directions. The last 6% just left me disappointed.
On the positive side, it WAS a great story, I was invested in the characters, all of them from the best to the worst. I was captivated by the story, I could picture it all. I thought the theme rooms were a bit far-fetched, but they still worked. I could see it all.
Would I recommend this book? Yes, if you're into HEA's and you like your reads a bit dark, but not too dark. Then this is definitely the book for you!
I'm going to give this book 3.5 stars, but rounding it up to 4. I liked it, I just didn't *love* it.
