Why you should read this: Everyone in this story, particularly Hannibal and Will, is brilliantly in character. I felt the pacing in this story was great, the plot superb, and the insight into Hannibal’s mind realistic and amazing. I utterly love the way both characters grew in the story. It left me feeling completely satisfied and utterly in love with the whole thing.
