In order to survive, she will have to challenger her own black and white view of good and evil.
The Gray Line by B.J. Cyprian is a thrilling read for those who enjoy character-driven tales that are psychologically rich and emotionally engaging. B.J. Cyprian writes about gay themes with confidence and respect, creating characters that readers will care about. They are genuinely flawed and believable. Angel’s relationships with her father and the people she interacts with are intelligently crafted and readers will love to watch as the bond grows stronger between them. I loved this character that evolves from having clear-cut views about good and evil to someone who steps into the gray line, considering other possibilities. The dialogues are sparkling and they greet the reader right off the bat. Yes, I loved the drama, which is confidently written to unveil the inner worlds of the characters while amping up the plot. The prose is beautiful and the plot features compelling moments that are unexpected and gripping, even from the prologue. The author has the gift of creating anticipation in readers and then throwing them off unexpectedly. It feels real and utterly absorbing. The Gray Line is like meeting people from real life.
