The Ruinous Sweep Ife every bit as much as he is But when the police show up and hint that he is the prime suspect in a murder Bee is determined to put together the pieces of what happened and clear his name With echoes of Dante’s Divine Comedy this harrowing journey through hell and back is a page turning tale of guilt retribution love and redempti I received this ARC from Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest reviewI was very curious throughout this book a boy who's lost his memories who may be a possible murder suspect? YES I am really interested in crim and unsolved mysteries so this type of story is certainly appealing to me I think my main problem with this book was Donovan's POVs In the beginning I was pretty invested in his chapters but as they went on I started thinking 'WHY do we need this aspect? Everything did link up in the end but in particular I felt like his scenes with who I presume was Kali in his room and as he was leaving was unnecessary and had me rolling my eyes I assume that Donovan's experiences are the Divine Comedy esue part of the story and I feel like if I had read the Divine Comedy I would've appreciated this aspect I understood what was happening but honestly after about 120 pages in I was just much interested in Bee's POVI did really like the second half of this novel it was what I was wanting it to be from the beginning full of mystery solving tense emotions and action This story was face paced which I really liked and full of suspenseful action filled scenes Overall I didn't love it but I didn't hate it either the second half of the novel bumped my rating from a 225 stars to a 3 stars
