All Her Secrets

“All Her Secrets” is about Victoria, the daughter of a famous genius inventor, who was almost murdered four years ago, but then recently gets kidnapped.

I love a good thriller and this was an okay one. The main thing that bothered me was that I didn’t connect with the characters, especially the two main characters: Victoria and Sam. I didn’t hate them, but I didn’t like them either. When I think of them, I kind of get a meh feeling. I will say that the author did a great job in writing the dual POVs. Each character felt unique and had their own voice, but I just didn’t connect with them.

The beginning of the story did grab my attention, but then the pace slows for a long time, which almost made me lose interest. But I kept on, and from the middle until the end, everything was fast-paced.

Another area where the story lacked was in world-building. It was a unique world yet I would have liked more info about it.

The story did have a few surprising twists that caught me off guard. I liked that. But overall, it’s a decent thriller with an interesting dystopian feel to it.
