Title: Gray's Domain
Series: The Purgatorium #2
Author: Eva Pohler
Published: June 1st 2014 by Green Press/Eva Pohler
Format: ARC ecopy
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Dr. Gray defends her dubious methods by claiming that all treatments come with risks, but when real bullets fly and lives are at stake, Daphne decides she wants no part of it and hatches a plan to save her family.
I really appreciate how the main character grows and an individual. Pohler really lets you get inside her head. You see her weighing the pros and cons, battling her demons, and becoming a more rounded and understanding individual (even if I may not always agree with her decisions). The supporting cast is so varied that there is someone for everyone to connect with, and for everyone to throw a bucket of water at. Everyone was uniquely yet fully developed to create a well rounded cast.
This novel may have been written with teens in mind, but it’s so compelling and is perfect for adults as well. I couldn’t put this one down. The story and theories behind it will stay with me for the long haul.
