That Which Maddens and Torments by Christopher Keating

That Which Maddens and TormentsBook Description:
Jo Black was the key to a puzzle. The only problem was, no one bothered to tell her. As a result, she found herself in a crossfire between people who wanted her dead and those who needed her alive.

The people using her were ruthless. But there was something they didn’t understand - so was she.

She was going to have to see this fight through to the end. And, that wasn’t necessarily a bad thing. They weren’t the only ones that could hunt.

My Thoughts:
I got completely engrossed in this book.  They were supposed to find it, that was the job they were given.  The easy way hadn't worked and now they must do some tracking.  Jo doesn't know she is the key, but she is.  Two groups want her and she has to stay alive. 
I liked how this book started out with a 'bang' and just kept going.  The author definitely knows how to get your attention and keep it.  Jo was a good, strong female lead character and I loved her personality.  The other characters were developed well and were well written.  I liked that there were twists and turns, some unexpected and some expected.  There was some romance, some mystery, some suspense and it was all so believable!  This is the kind of book that once you start it, you will be pulled into the story.
It was a 4/5.  I really liked the pace of the book!

Thank you to the author/publisher for the review copy of this book (via PUYB).  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
