All The Lies (Mindf*ck Series, 4)
Rating: 4 Stars
"I'm saying, bad shit is in the world, but some of the monsters have morals, where others are pure evil."
To understand the monsters in the world, you have to get inside their heads. It's a dangerous place to be, especially when you start to empathize and lose your own sense of morality. But that's never happened to me... I've never felt conflicted on any case. Right is right and wrong is wrong. It's simple. Black and white. There's no such thing as a gray area. But fuck this case. I don't even know what side I'm on anymore. I don't understand how this town can continue to function without breaking under the weight of all the lies they've spun and lived. Every time I find a shard of truth, my gut twists, my heart beats faster, and I hate this place a little more. Every time I think I've heard the worst, another truth is dug up from the ashes of more burning lies. Worst of all, I don't even know who to trust anymore. My head is all messed up. I pride myself on being impossible to fool. I'm an expert at knowing when someone is lying to me. I never believed in being blinded by love... until Lana.
Alright so this one was a bit harder to read than some of the others simply because we are finally get the information and details about that night. Which means as you can imagine details about what exactly happened that night in the town. Just when you think it can't get worse, it does... it gets so much worse. We learn a lot of details about what led up to the night that Lana has been working to avenge and more about her family. It was really painful to read some of the details in this book so if you are easily triggered or think the topic might be triggering just know this one is more likely to cause that to happen. However, they are brief compared to the rest of the story. I will say Chapter 1 of this book was incredibly painful to read.
We learn more about just how corrupt the town is in this one and why Lana has chosen to make the town her endgame for her revenge. I will admit that this series has been an emotional roller coaster and it's not even over yet. Like I still have one more to go, and I don't know if I can handle it. But I also need to know how this is resolved. Logan and his team have begun to piece together new details about their serial killer and my god does this increase the tension in this book. Basically this book alternates between emotional devastation and nail biting on the edge of your seat. I cannot wait to see how the series ends.
