Book Review In The Prison Of Our Grief

Title: In The Prison of Our Grief
Author: S.E. Amadis
Genre: Action Thriller

A harsh prison in England.

The grisly, tragic murder of three babies.

The murderess is on the loose… And Carrie Anne’s made friends with her.

Will she be able to find out the truth in time? Or will she become this sadistic murderess’ next victim?

Once again, Carrie Anne finds herself in the centre of another terrifying ordeal…

In this exciting sequel to Patricia, we follow seventeen-year-old Carrie Anne Houghton and her new comrades-in-arms in a whirling, dizzying, action-packed adventure that spans two continents, from the glitzy high-rises of New York City to the lonely expanses of rural Canada to the glamour and colour of Mediterranean tourist resorts.

Persecution, murder, lies and deceit. Traps, stormy Gothic settings, abandoned mansions and secret passageways. All of this comes to vivid life in the pages of In the Prison of our Grief.

A gripping, fast-paced, action-packed thriller featuring a strong female protagonist and a quirky male counterpart. This book can be read as a standalone.

I hadn’t read this author’s first book in the series, Patricia, but I was nevertheless, eager to get started on this book, because the plot seemed very interesting. And it was! Once I started reading, I couldn’t put it down.

The characters were the most interesting for me. I loved Carrie Anne Houghton, our main character. She was complex and just the right amount of intriguing. The secondary characters all had three-dimensional personalities, and appeared quite realistic.

Three babies are murdered, and Carrie Anne needs to stop the murderess. But will she be able to find out the truth in time, before she becomes the next victim?

The writing style was very fluent, and I quickly got immersed in the world of Carrie Anne Houghton. This was a nail-biting, edgy, suspenseful thriller. I look forward to reading the author’s next book, or maybe taking a look at book one in the series when I have some time.
