⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “It’s now 6:36 am and I’m amazed! I loved the story, the characters and most of all the ending. I never saw it coming!” Ten-year-old Nem has just witnessed her mother’s brutal murder and her life appears destined for tragedy. Until, that is, she finds her mother‘s old green journal which holds an incredible secret. This innocent looking book seems to contain the power to control the luck of others. As she uses it, she discovers the diary keeps a strange kind of karmic balance, that in gifting someone good fortune she must steal another’s first. All it takes is a simple entry. There’s dangers though not readily seen, and not just for others but also for Nem.Decades later, the literary world hails William Barnes’ debut novel as a masterpiece. For some inexplicable reason only a few years after, his best seller success doesn’t survive his next two books. That alone would be enough to make anyone desperate and depressed, but what frustrates and infuriates William is that while he’s losing everything, his undeserving protégé Orelia Mason is enjoying a meteoric rise up the charts. This triumph of hers coincides suspiciously with his fall from grace. So, William embarks on a plan, several actually, to take back the life he’s certain she has somehow stolen. If people get hurt along the way, well, tough luck for them. What he’ll discover though is that battling fate when luck is not on your side can be a dangerous game. This is A Star is Born meets The Picture of Dorian Gray, and the consequences are not pretty. In fact, they’re darn well ugly.

From Susan May, the international best selling author readers are calling the new Stephen King, comes a dark and twisted tale of jealousy, revenge and an extraordinary, unique power.

You won’t know who to hate and who to cheer on, and the ending will surprise, maybe even shock you.

It was an okay read, interesting idea I was excited for this book and the beginning was intriguing. I was interested until about chapter 35, though, starting out the book, I found it annoying at first how the chapters were back and forth equally between William and Nem.
