This is the first book from this author that I have read. As the title of my review suggests it has a few unexpected twists and turns. I settled to read it with fixed ideas about where the plot would take me, who would live, who would die, who was good and who was bad. The author certainly rid me of that idea with surprise twists and turns that took the book out of the somewhat formulaic nature of other works of this genre. I accept this is just my view, however I would recommend giving this author a chance to impress, I don't think you will be disappointed.
