I just could not get into this try as I did and now give up marking it DNF at 66%.

The character has dissociative identify disorder and is confused about everything that is happening. So was I.

The setting was interesting - a castle on a mostly deserted island gave all the Gothic feels.

I was listening to the audiobook as I followed along in the e-book ARC provided by the ppublisher and the narrator was great and voiced the MANY characters quite well.

The plot, as it were, was meant to be a mystery but at this point there was yet to be the murder.

Moving on.

This book is absolutely wild. It follows a Kenetria Nash who has dissociative identity disorder. Ken "wakes up" on the dock waiting to be taken to her new caretaker job of an old castle on an island. One of her alters applied for the job, but she can't talk to the one who did it because she's gone quiet (for now? forever? That's part of the tension). There are multiple perspectives in the book, all of them are Kenetria's alters. The author does a great job developing each of these distinct personalities and the role they play in the group.

There is suspense both in the external and internal world. I thought the internal suspense (which felt as concrete as the external) was very interesting and original. The external plot was incredibly trope driven and felt too extreme, which was very disappointing, but it didn't stop the book from being a wild page-turner.

Most readers are either going to love or hate this book primarily because of the voice of the primary narrator. Ken is self-destructive, crude, and she hates herself. She's definitely not a likeable character, but she is interesting and well-written, that just might not be a enough for some readers. The book is also very engaged with a Covid-world and the politics that go along with it. That will also be hit-or-miss with some readers. Again, I liked it, but it won't work for everyone.

I recommend this book for people looking for a suspenseful page-turner with complex characters, and wild twists and turns. ( )

I received this book from Scene of the Crime and the publisher for an honest review.

Kenetria (Ken) has dissociative identity disorder (DID), or multiple personalities. Ken has just emerged from being dormant for 6 years to find herself on a dock with luggage and a ferry coming towards her. Through her thoughts, she communicates with her personalities to find out what is going on and discovers that they have gotten a job as a caretaker on Kavanaugh (or Daybreak) Island. The only caveat is that they must make it through that first night.

Turns out, Ken and her headmates (her personalities) arrived a day earlier than anticipated. She doesn’t need to survive the first night but the second night. This is the night that members of the trust for the island arrive, including Ken’s ex-boyfriend and his father. When someone turns up dead, everyone assumes Ken is the murderer (she had attacked him years before).

Each chapter alternates from the POV of Ken to each of her “headmates”. Sometimes a journal entry will appear in between.

This was a tough, confusing read. There were several typos throughout the book. Normally, I can figure out the gist of what the author is writing but there were several times in this book when I had to reread the sentence because the typo changed the sentence completely. At one point, a character was thinking something was a figment of their imagination, but the author wrote “…fig mint…”. ( )
