Twisted #BookReview Two Graves by Zoe Kalo #Dark #Psychological #Suspense


Sometimes you read a book that makes you think 'what the hell have I just read?' and this story is one of those that leaves you wondering afterwards.

Angelica is a woman on a revenge mission seven years in the making and when she attends a masquerade ball at a mansion she, and the reader, is plunged into a psychological odyssey, of sinister opulence and decadence. She is immersed into Dante's seven circles with twists that take her to the edge of insanity.

Alongside, the event of seven years ago are revealed to the reader in a parallel narration so we understand her obsession with revenge.

This is a great quick read. The descriptions were amazing and every scene felt like I watched it on a cinema screen. However, the ending left me a little nonplussed and I had to re-read the last chapter. I suppose it was written that way on purpose.

Still, if you enjoy literary fiction or psychological suspense, then you will enjoy this one.
