They were eleven when they sent a killer to prison . . .
They were heroes . . . but they were liars.
Naomi Shaw used to believe in magic. Twenty-two years ago, she and her two best friends, Cassidy and Olivia, spent the summer roaming the woods, imagining a world of ceremony and wonder. They called it the Goddess Game. The summer ended suddenly when Naomi was attacked. Miraculously, she survived her seventeen stab wounds and lived to identify the man who had hurt her. The girls’ testimony put away a serial killer, wanted for murdering six women. They were heroes.
And they were liars.
For decades, the friends have kept a secret worth killing for. But now Olivia wants to tell, and Naomi sets out to find out what really happened in the woods—no matter how dangerous the truth turns out to be.
I was very disappointed in this book. I was so looking forward to the first adult book from Kate Alice Marshall aurthor. The storyline was tense and suspenseful at times. It leaves you with a huge guessing game on who not to trust. Unfortunately for me, I figured it out after the few couple chapters. There are some characters you may like or hate at the same time. I will mostly get this as a library before buying it. If may not be for me, bit I’m sure other readers will enjoy it better. Like I always said, read too much thriller/horror myself, so things become predictable.
