DOMINO: A girl with blue hair and a demon in her mind.
CAIN: A stone giant on the brink of exploding.
MADAM KARINA: A woman who demands obedience.
WILSON: The one who will destroy them all.
When Madam Karina discovers Domino in an alleyway, she offers her a position inside her home for entertainers in secluded West Texas. Left with few alternatives and an agenda of her own, Domino accepts. It isn’t long before she is fighting her way up the ranks to gain the madam’s approval. But after suffering weeks of bullying and unearthing the madam’s secrets, Domino decides to leave. It’ll be harder than she thinks, though, because the madam doesn’t like to lose inventory. But then, Madam Karina doesn’t know about the person living inside Domino’s mind. Madam Karina doesn’t know about Wilson.
A dark and gritty novel that reminded me of Sucker Punch. The prose almost felt dreamlike as the reader follows Domino’s journey through this cult-like society that she has been sucked into.
As Domino progresses through this dark and terrifying place she must find a way to escape while also ensuring the safety of those she has come to care for. The plot was at times overwhelming and almost confusing.
Domino is a complex character with a dark-side. A dark-side she does not want to let loose. Side characters such as Cain and Poppet are intriguing and complex characters in themselves. This is a dark story that melds many different puzzle pieces together for quite the explosive ending.
