Forgive us, Father, for we have sinned

Brooklyn Stevens sits in a pool of her own blood, tied up and gagged. No one outside of these dank basement walls knows she’s here. No one can hear her scream.
 
Sofia Flores knows she shouldn’t have gotten involved. When she befriended Riley, Grace, and Alexis on her first day at school, she admired them, with their perfect hair and their good-girl ways. They said they wanted to save Brooklyn. They wanted to help her. Sofia didn’t realize they believed Brooklyn was possessed.
 
Now, Riley and the girls are performing an exorcism on Brooklyn—but their idea of an exorcism is closer to torture than salvation. All Sofia wants is to get out of this house. But there is no way out. Sofia can’t go against the other girls . . . unless she wants to be next. . . .
 
In this chilling debut, Danielle Vega delivers blood-curdling suspense and terror on every page. By the shockingly twisted end, readers will be faced with the most haunting question of all: Is there evil in all of us?

I don’t read horror books often. They make my imagination grow so wild I think I’ll die by self infliction. So when I heard about this book being dubbed as super creepy I just need to try it. I read it with Cath of To All The Books I’ve loved before because we need each other if this turns out to be too much for us. But unfortunately, I am kind of dissappointed. I expected explosive nerve wrecking scenes and devious plot twist but all I got was little bit gore and an unrealistic ( as much as real in fiction as it get ) turn of events. I wasn’t scared at all. I was cautious, yes, on my toes all throughout the book because I’m afraid that I will get snucked up on but nothing book slinging worthy happened. I was so dissappointed because I wanted more. I wanted more blood, screams, questions, answers.

But nevertheless, I would still read the sequel. I saw it now and it will be released on July 5, 2016 and it is gold! 😍 I shall be waiting for more.

3 Royal stars because I don’t like being hyped then being dissappointed that the hype wasn’t deserved 😒
