    Wow! I enjoyed this book a lot. It has been a while since I read a horror book, but I am definitely picking up more horror books the coming weeks. I thought the concept of shape-shifter and serial killer was intriguing. I could not stop reading the book, constantly thought about it, who could be the serial killer? Would there be a solution to stopping the shape-shifter? I still think about the book now.

    The characters were well-developed. I loved how Wilson Jackson was able to show the gore actions of the shape-shifter, while creating a sense of sympathy and empathy for him. Another aspect of the book that I enjoyed, was that the story is told from multiple angles. This allows the reader to guess who the Sin Killer might be.

    The book didn't give me chills in the moment. However, now it creeps me out thinking back about the reality that people can behave innocent while committing horrible crimes. I definitely recommend this book to horror and thriller lovers!! Keep an eye out when it's coming out, because this is worth the read! If you want suspense, gore scenes, and being on the edge of your seat, this is the book for you!

    I received a copy of this from the author in return for an honest review.

    The book centres around 2 people - one a serial killer and the other someone who doesn’t know he is - and the authorities trying to catch them one of whom happens to be related to one of the killers. It was an interesting and enjoyable story and although I had guessed who the serial killer was early on, the pace and style of writing kept me interested as I wanted to see if and how the two came together.

    The story was well written although the dialogue between characters was difficult to follow at times - it was not always clear who said what in a conversation as there was sometimes no distinction between what was being said by which character - however, this could have been due to how the book formatted on my reading device and it certainly didn’t detract too much from the flow of the writing.

    The characters were well developed and I enjoyed getting to know them. They were believable and I found myself feeling sorry for the main character, Jalen, and the predicament he was in through no fault of his own.

    I would have liked the serial killer’s character to have been developed a bit more than it was - it felt like he was more of an aside or afterthought to make the story more interesting and different but nevertheless, it was an entertaining read and one that I would recommend.
