About The Book

TUOER image

“A single phone call from halfway across the world is all it takes to bring her home . . . ‘Ellie, something bad has happened.’

Desperate to escape her ‘kid from the scrapyard’ reputation, Ellie Rook has forged a new life for herself abroad, but tragedy strikes when her mother, Imelda, falls from a notorious waterfall. Here, according to local legend, the warrior queen Finella jumped to her death after killing a king. In the wake of her mother’s disappearance, Ellie is forced to confront some disturbing truths about the family she left behind and the woman she has become. Can a long-dead queen hold the key to Ellie’s survival? And how far will she go to right a wrong?”

What I Thought

Oh I really wasn’t sure what I was going to make of this one but the more I read the more I liked it. As the book progressed secrets started to come out and I thought oh wow I didn’t see that coming. It went in a totally different direction to what I had been expecting and I was grateful for the surprise.

Some of the scenes where hard, there is domestic violence and it’s not sugar coated or overly dramatic, it’s very real and left me with a lump in my throat at one point. I kept urging Ellie to just get out of there or just call someone but it wasn’t that simple. It was a very hard situation.

I will say that it had an immensely satisfying ending and I actually wanted to applaud the book when I had finished. It was all really well told.

This is a very well done psychological thriller that almost tricks you into thinking you’re not reading a thriller.. if that makes sense? It does in my head! Anyway is you’re looking for a quick and engaging read I would recommend you give this a go.

Many thanks to Kelly from LoveBooksGroup for having me on this tour, all opinions are my own and I am not paid to give them.
