After their car breaks down on a back road in the snow, Dee, Luke and his brother Mike are forced to leave the car to look for shelter and gas. Dee planned this weekend for her anniversary with Luke and had to bring Mike with since he agreed to help her. Now the three must navigate their way through a neighboring town that appears to be abandoned to find safety.
After a young boy approaches the group and says that he can help them, they follow him outside. Things seem to be turning around for the three until they realize this young boy is the son of the cult-like ruler of this small town. Dee, Luke, Mike, and Joseph now must fight for their lives against Joseph’s father Elijah while trying to save Joseph’s younger sister from the wrath of Elijah.
This book was absolutely fantastic. It dealt with so many tough issues in such a delicate but fascinating way that I devoured the story. Absolutely deserves a 5/5.
