The spine-tingling horror of Stephen King meets an eerie mystery worthy of Sara Shepard's Pretty Little Liars series in Kate Karyus Quinn's haunting debut.
On a cool autumn night, Annaliese Rose Gordon stumbled out of the woods and into a high school party. She was screaming. Drenched in blood. Then she vanished.
A year later, Annaliese is found wandering down a road hundreds of miles away. She doesn't know who she is. She doesn't know how she got there. She only knows one thing: She is not the real Annaliese Rose Gordon.
Now Annaliese is haunted by strange visions and broken memories. Memories of a reckless, desperate wish . . . a bloody razor . . . and the faces of other girls who disappeared. Piece by piece, Annaliese's fractured memories come together to reveal a violent, endless cycle that she will never escape—unless she can unlock the twisted secrets of her past.
When I got into this book, I expected a mystery thriller. But, WOW did this book catch me by surprise.
Plot: First, the plot is well written. It pulls the reader in with the mystery of Annalise and where she’s been. Having no memory and as stranger always leaving cryptic messages, I was fully intrigued. The more I dived into Annalise’s head and the more I saw, the more I became attached and utterly wowed by what is actually happening.
Movement: What bothered me the most is the development of the story. It moved slowly (a little slow for my liking) and really I’m an impatient reader. Once questions start popping in my head, I begin rushing my reading cause I needed to know. Even though it was slow, I understood that the foundation for the story needed to be set in order for the reader to understand.
Love/Friendship/Deal with evil: Now there are a few parts of the story that start to look hopeful and the next thing you know, BAM! Right back into darkness. Just when you think you got it figured out, your lost again cause of a cyrptic message. Not to mention, that once I got last few chapters and all was revealed I was like,” WHAAAAAAAT!”
The detailing of the story is what makes it beautiful. It’s the little things that you catch as your reading. Her covered in blood, memory loss, a friend from the past. Every thing put together makes for an excellent thriller. Terrifying and solid, Another Little Piece is great.
I give it 4 BITES!
