The Euthanist - Alex Dolan

Warning: The synopsis that's provided with this book spoils more than half of the book. If you don't like your books spoiled, I suggest you skip it. 


But seriously, I don't understand why any publisher/author would decide to tell so much on the back cover. Is it not meant to make you curious enough to buy the book? Then why tell exactly everything already. Why would I buy the book if I already know exactly what's going to happen </rant>


Luckily, I hadn't read the blurb and just a review which made me curious. And when I started reading this novel about an Angel of Death who happens to stumble on the wrong patient after which her life won't be same, I got immediately into the story. A few pages in and I was thinking 'wow, this is going to be good'. Unfortunately, the rest of the novel couldn't keep it up as I had hoped it would. 


The writing was nice enough but in the second half I did get annoyed with the story. The guy I think was supposed to be the good guy is so annoying and their plan didn't make much sense. 


So, the start was very promising but mainly in the second half the story kind of lost me.


Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
