I was truly enjoying this one until the “twist” at the end and then I was left scratching my head. *Major Book Ruining Spoiler Alert* Sophia was a captive in the fucking garden, escaped, and didn’t tell anybody about it except for Maya, so Maya knew about the garden before she was taken?!?! WTF!! No, seriously, WTF?!?!
I think it was supposed to make the whole thing gel together, but it did the exact opposite for me. I was really digging it, until then too. I still think it was a very good read and it is unfortunate that the author felt it necessary to throw in such a curve. Went from a solid 4+ star to a 2.5 in a couple of chapters. Damn.
