This was a very unique book. It starts out with the protagonist suffering extremely bad burns and follows him as he tries to get his life back together. Ryker excelled at writing this part and made me feel like I was really watching the struggles of recovery. Then the book takes a turn that will throw the reader for a loop. At first, I wasn't caring for the turn of events but it all came together and made sense as it neared the conclusion. This is a book that will stay with you for a long time and the more that I think about it, the more that I like it. Recommended!
