Never trust the quotes on the back of a book. Maybe it's just me, but sick and twisted does not equal scary. This book was lame, the characters were all totally shallow and idiotic, and so was the dialogue. I forced myself to finish it because a) I thought maybe the ending would make up for everything else (it didn't), and b) I admit I was a bit curious to find out what was going on. Turns out it was just senseless gore, which is a bore.
