The suspense thriller of the year - The Marsh King's Daughter will captivate you from the start and chill you to the bone.
'I was born two years into my mother's captivity. She was three weeks shy of seventeen. If I had known then what I do now, things would have been a lot different. I wouldn't have adored my father.'
When notorious child abductor - known as the Marsh King - escapes from a maximum security prison, Helena immediately suspects that she and her two young daughters are in danger.
No one, not even her husband, knows the truth about Helena's past: they don't know that she was born into captivity, that she had no contact with the outside world before the age of twelve - or that her father raised her to be a killer.
And they don't know that the Marsh King can survive and hunt in the wilderness better than anyone... except, perhaps his own daughter.
Packed with gripping suspense and powerful storytelling, The Marsh King's Daughter is a one-more-page, read-in-one-sitting thriller that you'll remember for ever.
I received this book for free from First To Read in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
This book really did not work for me, I could not connect at all with any of the characters. The story is told from Helena’s point of view about her escaped from prison father The Marsh King. Helena was born into captivity, the captor being her father. I feel that, in my opinion, Helena glorified her father. He taught her the skills to survive in the wilderness and that alone will help Helena track The Marsh King down. The story itself is very well written. I just did not enjoy this book at all.
