⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/ 5 Stars


This book dives deep into the struggles people in cults are facing whether they are currently in that cult or have gotten themselves out of it, the tragedies they faced in the cult will always follow them and this book really shows that. I personally don’t know too much about cults but I found this book very insightful and it made me want to do some of my own research.

I feel all the characters had really interesting story lines and each of them had their own struggles and secrets that really kept me engaged in each chapter.

I really didn’t have anything bad to say about this book! The way it ended had me craving the second book so I immediately went to buy it. However, jokes on me because it sadly doesn’t come out till March 2022.

things to be aware of are some possible trigger warnings before picking up this book.
