Review:

This is the second in the Maddie Ives series, while it can be read as a standalone, I would highly recommend reading the first book, He’s watching you (you can read my review here) just to get a better understanding of the characters.

I honestly spent the majority of the time reading he will kill you feeling like my heart was going to burst out of my chest!

Whew, this was a tough read! Charlie Gallagher warns you before starting reading this book that it contains scenes of domestic violence taken from his experiences as a police officer but I wasn’t quite prepared for the emotional effect it would have on me!

Grace who is being abused by her boyfriend is such a good character. She shows how abusers exert their control, bully and attack a victims self esteem to make it feel like it’s impossible to the leave but she’s trying her hardest to break free, and keeping a diary to make sure that no-one else will suffer from the abuse she did.

I have to be honest, I didn’t enjoy this as much as the first one, it felt a little more chaotic with the bombs going off and everything. I also had the same issue as I had with the first book, in the fact the beginning contains multiple different storylines which don’t at first seem to relate to each other and at times I got a little confused keeping track of but of course that’s just my opinion.

Overall He will kill you is a gripping and realistic novel that will have an emotional impact on you.
