I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
The story is told from Elliot’s point of view. A boy, who wanted to wipe his ability to feel and instead he became a strong empath. He’s trying to mute his ability with alcohol, but then he meets Iris. A girl who is different than all other women in town. She’s not afraid.
The problem with Hydes is that they’re unpredictable. If you got infected, you might change at any time and attack everyone around you reaching for their heart. Because the heart is what Hydes eat.
With women it’s different – they can’t be infected, they can only die. So why isn’t Iris afraid?
