Booklist Reviews 2018 November #1

Carey's (The Girl with All the Gifts, 2014) latest is an intense, supernaturally tinged psychological suspense story featuring alternating narration by two deeply troubled women, both sympathetic, if not trustworthy. Liz is a single mom who, in a brutal fight with her abusive ex-husband, feels as if someone else is taking over her body and mind as she defends herself. Fran, 16, is getting by a decade after being the victim of a kidnapping and attempted murder, though her frequent hallucinations and imaginary best friend, a fox, may indicate otherwise. The anxiety-fueled story is filled with violence, darkness, and the ghosts living at the edge of reality. Liz and Fran are fighting forces that they don't understand, to save themselves and those they love, but would anyone believe the truth? Although Carey has his own built-in audience, this title is of a different breed; suggest it to fans of other tension-driven psychological thrillers that lap at the shore of horror, like those by Gillian Flynn, Sarah Pinborough, or Paul Tremblay.

Liz Kendall is a divorced mom, raising two children. To those who know her, she's gentle and loving. But one night, after she's assaulted by her abusive ex-husband, it's as if another force takes over her body, helping her to escape. Liz then begins to act strangely and wonders if there's something seriously wrong with her. For Fern Watts, hallucinations and a childhood attack means lots of meds, but her imaginary fox friend Jinx is always there and ready to protect her. When Fern encounters Liz in her psychiatrist's office, she believes she's seeing herself and attributes it to being part of her condition—but is it? Creative characters and a twisting plot absorb readers in an intense journey of the mind, begging the question of how far you will go to protect those you love? VERDICT This latest from Carey (The Girl with All the Gifts) offers a dark, supernatural thriller that blurs the edges of the world we know.
