He’s been brainwashed. Nothing will stop him from doing what that woman wants.
DI Helena Stratton takes on a missing person’s case that at first seems like a lad just hasn’t come home on time. But when someone turns up dead…
Why is this person taking teen boys?
What are ‘the crow’ and ‘the hollow’?
With death involved, it’s imperative the team find the abductor—and fast.
And who on earth is the child in the tree?
Hey guys, Today I have a wonderful book review for THE CHILD IN THE TREE by Emmy Ellis & M.A.Comley. Which is the third book in the DI Helena Stratton series.
The is the third book in this powerful, disturbing and magnificent series.
One boy missing then one body found and another teenage boy missing. One note and a few words ‘in the hallows’. Shit scared parents.
This is honestly such a gripping read from beginning to end. Although this does heavily involve religion which I don’t particularly like. This was done so well and really worked and made the story\plot even more interesting and chilling.
This is almost goes into the depth of the ‘bad’ side of the religion, abuse and brainwashing.
A young boy subjected to this horror, and how will he end up?
After so many intense disturbing crimes DI Helena Stratton and the team are finally having a calm time with investigations. Until DI Stratton comes across a weird missing child case.
It goes from weird to geniusly mind-boggling.
I loved Helena Stratton even more in this book, there is just so much more of her. I think Helena has to be one of my all-time favourite characters. She is just real and perfectly flawed. I also love her backstory and personal life which is so in depth which makes Helena more lovable, more relatable in a kinda strange way.
Her relationship with Damian is also something that I have loved watching develop and no matter how screwed up Helena seems to be, no matter what she does or doesn’t, whatever thoughts bad or good. He honestly doesn’t care and loves her anyway without question.
Another fabulous book by these two magnificently beautiful authors. Their collaboration is a match made in perfect disturbing heaven.
As a whole series,this is basically fifty shades of fucked up.
But in the best kinda way.
I hope, I beg and I plead there will be many many more books from these two authors together.
