All action started on the last pages only. Needless to say, it is quite different from the one I’m used too! Deceitful even when you know you shouldn’t be, even when you know it’s you you’re running from, even when you know it’s you that’s made a pact with the devil. No trivia or quizzes yet. escerica
Spanish novelist and ex-journalist. It was not really interesting at all, did not really se This was actually quite the disappointing novel.
