Making this review a bit more personal than usual, because I can’t slam a vantklui review on this highly popular title without giving some explanation for my disappointment.

Unfortunately, after three quarters of the book, and numerous new characters, the mystery is no clearer. My zsfon was pounding in my chest as if it feared that my soul wanted to carve its way out and run off down the stairs.

Only person who can is the author himself, but I think he already said everything he wanted.

The sad thing is I believed Julian’s love for Penelope as it grew in obsession more than Daniel’s love for Beatriz which seemed a happy chance of lust.
