SYNOPSIS

‘I wore my guilt like a coat, but it was one I was used to wearing – old and worn and shabby, and it fitted me perfectly.’ 

They’re finished, aren’t they? Mesmeris. But what if they’re not? How far will you go to protect the people you love? 


Pearl has moved on with her life. She has a home, a job, a wonderful friend in Spicer, and a beautiful child – everything anyone could want. If only she could stop loving Art.


Following on from events in Infixion, Pearl is trying to move on with her life. She has everything she has ever wanted: a house, a job, a lovely friend called Spicer and her son. But when her old life starts to make appearances, and Mesmeris is still at large, and Pearl has many more things closer to her which she could lose so easily.

Not one of these books have disappointed me- especially as often the third book can turn mundane in a trilogy: this one definitely didn't. Coles has a way of enchanting her readers, so they are utterly wrapped up and engrossed in the pages.

I adore Pearl as a main character, as even though she is stood in the middle of the action- her voice is so distinct and relatable. Through little pieces of a puzzle, we really get to delve deep into Art's personality- we get to know more about him as the trilogy went on. Spicer is also another great character- I really enjoyed reading about him.

The ending of the book again didn't disappoint, it definitely didn't go out quietly for sure. Coles has such compelling and vivid writing; these books will definitely stay with you for a long time because of this.

An easy 5/5- Wormwood was absolutely stunning, with perfect central characters, a tension filled plot and phenomenal writing.
