“Maya” woke up in the butterfly garden, where the Gardener collects butterflies. Human butterflies. After having their wings tattooed on their backs and their names selected, they are free to wander the garden.
The gardener truly loves his butterflies, so although he rapes them, he does so with care. The same can’t be said for his eldest son, Avery, who is sadistic and cruel.
I wanted to like Guilty by Laura Elliot, I really did. I still gave it 3 stars because it was well paced, the story line was good, and there were parts I loved. That said, there were also parts I didn’t love.
Despite the fact that I enjoyed The Darkest Lies by Barbara Copperhwaite, this is a difficult review to write. Let me start out by saying I loved the story… It kept me engaged throughout the entire book. I couldn’t wait to see what happened next. Even though I had guessed the who the “bad guy” was at 51%, imagine my surprise when I realized I tied that “bad guy” to the wrong “bad thing”.
