The name is definitely deserved. This is a very intense book. The beginning had me captivated, the middle was a bit of a lull but the ending picked right back up. Mr. Vess is an interesting character but reading from his POV is exhausting. If I would have read the word sensations one more time I might have screamed. Chyna is also an interesting character with a really rough past. She has so much emotional baggage and yet still manages to stay strong. Definitely a great main character.
