Loved the interwoven time periods of this book. From past, present, and future, I couldn’t wait to see how the characters were related to the storyline. Can’t wait to read the next book in the series to see what happens to Finn, Rebecca, and Hael.

With vivid settings, the author weaves together Scotland of 1994 and 2015, with a frightening future world set in 7875. We follow Finn, both in the past and present, through a harrowing experience, where his life is transformed from an unknown evil. The presence of Hael, in the future, going through his own trials, ties the storylines together.

The author brilliantly, and carefully, reveals the layers linking his characters. The evil in the story feels terrifyingly real. This is a book I would wholeheartedly recommend.

It is fair to say that there are philosophical questions raised in this book that we all contemplate over. Is evil inherent in us or can our humanity win over its presence.
