A monster roams the halls of Soothing Hills Asylum. Three girls dead. 29 is endowed with the curse…or gift of perception. She hears messages in music, sees lyrics in paintings. And the corn. A lifetime asylum resident, the orchestral corn music is the only constant in her life.
Mason, a new, kind orderly, sees 29 as a woman, not a lunatic. And as his belief in her grows, so does her self- confidence. That perhaps she might escape, might see the outside world.
But the monster has other plans. The missing girl’s share one common thread…each was twenty-nine’s cell mate.
Will she be next?
I loved this book! I literally could not put it down, so I definitely made a mistake in starting it at work. I found it so interesting to keep having a narration change between 29, Jules, and Dr. Greyjoy. I was able to get a much bigger idea of what was going on in the novel with the narration switches and there was no confusion as to who was talking. It is a difficult balance to maintain and so many authors fail at it but this was just superbly done. The detail in this book is stunning. It’s a scary and beautiful world with rich and realistic characters. I hope there is a sequel in the works because I cannot be left hanging like this or I shall suffer greatly. I highly recommend this if you want a book you can devour in one setting and feel fulfilled from it.
