Lana used to know what was real.

That was before when her life was small and quiet.
Her golden step-brother, Ben, was alive, she could only dream about bonfiring with the populars, their wooded island home was idyllic, she could tell the truth from lies, and Ben’s childhood stories were firmly in her imagination.

Then came after.

After has Lana boldly kissing her crush, jumping into the water from too high up, and living with nerve and mischief. But after also has horrors, deaths that only make sense in fairy tales, and terrors from a past Lana thought long forgotten: Love, blood, and murder.

My Review: When I first started reading The Telling it was a little bit slow in the beginning. I say that because I feel the author does include a lot of details in the story so you understand what the main character is going through. I don't find it annoying that she wrote a lot of details, I love details plus it does help explain a lot of things. A lot of times I find you need those details. I found this to be a great suspenseful murder mystery book. Sirowy will have you guessing and guessing, thinking its this person or no it has to be this person. It is a book that will be hard to put down, because you just have to keep reading to know how it ends! If you are into the books have immense mystery and suspense I feel this book will be perfect for you. I do need to share that there are some cuss words in this book and some talk that suggest about sex. Luckily it wasn't too much about it, because I myself am not into the cuss words in books. A lot of times you just cannot get away from it though, that is how some of the children talk nowadays and a lot of adults. Anyways, enough of that talk, other than that again I say this was an intriguing book. I am going to have to grab the other book of the authors and read it.
