Book review: Truly Unfortunate -CA King (@PortalProphecy )

Truly has been having a run of bad luck. Each month is a struggle to make rent and pay reviewfor her psychiatrist. Her childhood memories have been forgotten, but within there lies a dark secret. One her psychiatrist is determined to reveal. When people around Truly start dying in mysterious ways Jeff and Miranda are called to action. Whilst they seem to be nothing more than accidents, Jeff’s gut tells him there are more to these deaths than there seems. Each of the victims had been told their fortune before meeting their end. Jeff had seen something like this before. Little did he know that starting down this path would change his future forever.

Truly Unfortunate is the first book in CA King’s Welcome to Knollville. I have read a few books by this author, and intend to continue to do so in the future. CA King never fails to keep the reader entertained. Great scene setting, character development, and attention to detail will drive the reader forward, rooting for the characters and hoping to see if and how Truly can turn her life around without giving in to the horrific demands being made of her. Discovery, hardship, and perseverance fill this supernatural tale and marks the start of what promises to be a gripping and engaging series.
