DOMINO: A girl with blue hair and a demon in her mind.
CAIN: A stone giant on the brink of exploding.
MADAM KARINA: A woman who demands obedience.
WILSON: The one who will destroy them all.
When Madam Karina discovers Domino in an alleyway, she offers her a position inside her home for entertainers in secluded West Texas. Left with few alternatives and an agenda of her own, Domino accepts. It isn’t long before she is fighting her way up the ranks to gain the madam’s approval. But after suffering weeks of bullying and unearthing the madam’s secrets, Domino decides to leave. It’ll be harder than she thinks, though, because the madam doesn’t like to lose inventory. But then, Madam Karina doesn’t know about the person living inside Domino’s mind. Madam Karina doesn’t know about Wilson.
Holy-moly, this book was fuckin-tastic. We got a great story with great characters, excitement and a beautiful book cover. I know it’s judgemental, but this cover is over-the-top perfect.
I will be honest. I don’t want to spoil the book to anyone, you absolutely have to read this one. So, we have our main character, Domino and her friend, Dizzy. They live in an abandoned house in a shitty part of town and struggling. They live day-to-day, but one time Dizzy is taken in custody. Domino wants to bail him, but she doesn’t have any money. Then comes this lady to help her, takes her to a special, secluded house where she harbors other young girls. She says it’s a house for burgeoning artists. But all is not as it seems…
Domino has her own demons too. One specifically named Wilson, who lives in her head and does very, very bad things sometimes. I kinda liked him. He is protective. A bastard, but a protective bastard. Domino fears what is he capable of. But everyone has their own secrets and we know that secrets won’t be buried forever…
This book is dark, fast-paced and a definite page-turner. If you are looking for some mysterious, action-filled dark Young-Adult story then this one is for you.
