Ratings & Reviews
When I got this and read the synopsis blurb, I didn't know what to expect, but as I kept reading, I found it harder to put down each time. It's a very dark and complex story that pulls you in to the mystery, and it's one of the best light novels I've read! I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who's into a good, dark mystery with supernatural elements.
Great Start to a Time-Looping Mystery/Psychological Thriller series
This is a wonderfully-written mystery/psychological thriller with a great romantic subplot. There is so much meat in this story and the ones that follow. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes this type of story. It is worth reading, maybe twice just to pick up on everything that is going on.
Buckle in Boys!
Like everyone else, I agree that this was a killer for a first novel in a series. Lots of twists that made me feel like the fool for trying to predict what's going on. I do not kid when I say that the author makes you believe one thing, and then steals it away from you. That's also why I can't go into detail about the plot besides spoilers.
I wanna give this a 4.5/5 stars, at the same time, there's always a few details that need to be touched upon but are left to the sequel. Otherwise I would've immediately given all stars.
So, ninety-nine percent yes to recommending this to anyone looking for a psychological thriller series-but be warned that while there is some censoring of some descriptive words, there is gore. Do not test the waters if you are faint of heart.
