The Flood is the latest release by Meghan O’Flynn- and what a mind-twisting and intense read this has been. Ms. Flynn’s books always leave me looking over my shoulder with their sinister and creepy tones- and this one was certainly all that and more. I don’t know quite how to categorize it, as it has a little bit of everything from psychological thriller, to suspense, and mystery with dark, twisted, gruesome, and nightmarish developments and situations that had me scrambling to stay on top of everything that was happening. There were so many scenarios running through my mind while I was reading, and I was trying to piece everything together and figure out what exactly was happening. But there was more going on than meets the eye, that’s for sure- and things become clearer little by little, as the story unfolds. I was left guessing, and I was never quite sure where Ms. O’Flynn was ‘taking’ me. As expected, Ms. O’Flynn has spun a brilliant web of intrigue and it’s certainly one story I won’t forget any time soon.
I did have a little trouble connecting with Victoria especially at the beginning, but as the story progressed and details were revealed, she grew on me more.
Another well-spun tale that made all the hairs on the back of my neck stand to attention, and will definitely have me looking over my shoulder for a while to come.
Thank you, Ms. Flynn!!!
