At last! a Thriller that is not totally predictable and formula like. Gripping to the last page. I will say it is a little formulaic (is that a word?) in that it is an isolated girls school, cut off by winter weather. The heroine has gone back there to teach, after finding herself in circumstances that she must take any job. Still, one of the better reads.

I loved this book. It had so many twists and turns and then when you think you know what's going on it changes again. This was something that I could not put down and would recommend it to anyone.

Wow, this was a super great read. The suspense started at the begining and kept right on going. The characters are well developed and you really become involved in their lives. Don't let the title fool you, this is a great read!

At first I was turned off by the darkness and the goddess-rite sort of stuff going on, but once I got into the characters it wasn't too bad. By the time I got halfway through, I didn't want to put it down! Enjoyable and was fun to figure out all the different plot twists. Not as difficult as a J. Picoult, but very engaging! First book I've read by this author and I plan to read more.

Great drama, an edge-of-your-seat thriller.
