Corrupted Hearts by Julian Napier
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Great debut novel for this author, and I look forward to reading the next installment to see where this all goes.
The first chapter set the story up to be quite thrilling and it drew me in easily. I did find that it slowed down after that, but my interest was still held by the intermittent sections of the past. I would have liked a little more of a twist though, but it takes a lot to surprise me now!
I can see this author being very good at the darker side of stories, which I love. I hope to see more of this in future novels.
All in all, a good read and I give it 3.5 stars.
