A review by kati3cruel
The Cassandra by Sharma Shields


Absolutely stunning. This is the first book I've read by Sharma but I'm glad it was - incredibly intense read. Sometimes I'm a bit hard to shock and find myself wishing for an author to go deeper into twisted territory that I want to explore, but with The Cassandra I was rapt the entire time with learning about Mildred and her visions, and all the strange, beautiful, desolate, and horrifying imagery, described so artfully. Bleakness levels on par with or even exceeding The Road, the standard by which I measure any so-called "dark" novel.
