    uiver ePUB ¶ ↠ PDF american fiction.co uiver mobile, uiver PDF/EPUBI don't know what I expected when picking up a book that so heavily features Elizabeth Bathory but this was gorier than I was prepared for The other aspect is the toxic friendship with sexual tension between Maria and Danica which I always find simultaneously engrossing and unpleasant

    uiver ePUB ¶ ↠ PDF american fiction.co uiver mobile, uiver PDF/EPUBWhen I picked this book up at the library I didn't know what it was The synopsis seemed intriguing enough so I decided to give it a try Well I guess not having any expectation was a good thing because I didn't really get anything out of itview spoilerDani a psychiatrist was the protagonist of the story I wouldn't call her a heroine at all because I saw her as a victim throughout the entire book a victim of her own stupidity and brainless acts It was so damn obvious that her so called friend Maria was a total bitch and had an agenda of her own even from the beginning I couldn't understand how Dani wouldn't have seen through all of Maria's manipulations and machinations from the get go Seriously you'd think that someone who was a psychiatrist would be smarter and observant than that right? But no our Dani here was just plain dumb and her curiosity was the root cause of her downfall She was in fact too juvenile in my opini

    uiver ePUB ¶ ↠ PDF american fiction.co uiver mobile, uiver PDF/EPUB25 stars I had this on my Kindle for about a year have decided in 2013 to get some of the lingerers read done The best thing I can say is that my task was completed I finished reading this book It was well written but a true slog Dani annoyed me for much of the story because I was able to see that Maria was a serious problem not a very nice person but Dani was pulled in dismissed just about everything because she believed Maria's story about Bathory's diary It just reached a point with the chaos ensuing that I no longer cared about Dani her obsession Foster was uite interesting but even that bit of the story unravelled for me The excerpts of the diary were fairly harrowing but they didn't really anchor anything else going on with the story to feel to me as anything but a macabre sideshow I lost the will to gawk lon
