Monsters exist. Not in closets or under the bed, but within each of us. And sometimes . . . they win.
Kidnapped. Confused. Afraid.
Ophelia wakes up to find herself an unwilling pawn in a plot for revenge.
Pain. Blood. Loyalty.
These things bind Sawyer to a promise he struggles to keep.
Sawyer doesn’t want to hurt Ophelia. Ophelia doesn’t want to be hurt. But some things are unavoidable. What happens when trust is broken? What happens when fear and love collide?
Hearts get broken and lives get shattered when the Sins of the Father are brought to bear.
Sins of the Father doesn’t let you slowly acclimate to the darkness that is held within its pages. It pushes you right into the deep end and makes you figure out how to swim.
Several days after reading Sins of the Father I am still unsure if I agreed with any of the decisions Ophelia and Sawyer made. I truly don’t know if there were ‘right’ decisions in their situation, though, so that may be a good part of my confusion. Sawyer knew he needed to protect Ophelia, but without him she wouldn’t have been in the place she was.
Sins of the Father is one of those books that makes you absolutely uncomfortable and causes you to question your status quo. Nothing in the entire book was black and white, no matter how good (or bad) a person may have been there was always a piece of them that made you question your stance on them.
I really would have liked some more insight into what happens with the characters between the final chapter and the epilogue, as all of the trauma they’d experience definitely warranted some closure, but all-in-all, I really did enjoy Sins of the Father and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for something that pushes their boundaries.
Jamie Canosa has long been one of my go-to authors. She was the first author for whom I reviewed and I am happy to be able to continue having the privilege of reviewing her books. She kindly gave me an early copy of Sins of the Father for an honest review.
