The Huntress

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

There’s a reason why I am pursuing a degree in psychology. I have always been horrified and confused when it came to the worst criminals, and this is one of the many things that have led to my passion for psychology. With some criminals, it’s obvious what drew them to commit such terrible things – but with others, it’s just downright baffling. I want to find out what really causes people who were before seemingly so normal and innocent, to suddenly lash out with such violence and cruelty. Take Ted Bundy, for example. He had a child and a wife and at one point he was MAJORING IN PSYCHOLOGY. Ted Bundy seemed like the most normal person in the world, and minus the fact he committed 30-40 gruesome murders, the rest of his profile, at least from an ordinary perspective, looked speckless. The reason he wasn’t caught for so long was because officials couldn’t believe it to be someone who had such charisma and seemed to live such a normal life. Even in this interview, a few hours before his death by the electric chair, he’s still being so manipulative. He’s clearly very good at what he’s doing, it’s hard to imagine him being the cause of such mortifying murders. Ted Bundy, is somewhat similar to The Huntress.

I downloaded this book on OverDrive without knowing what it was about. I remember seeing it all over Goodreads when it came out, flicked through some reviews and skimmed the blurb and then added it to my TBR. Usually I do my research, and usually I tend to regret it.

But honestly, this time that is so not the case. I was reading it past midnight, and I just started getting so creeped out that when I heard the long and drawn out creaking of a door I actually got so scared. Luckily, after investigating it was my brother. It might sound stupid but the premise… the way this women is portrayed… is just downright terrifying. Maybe this is why people find the Woman in Black scary, although I haven’t read it yet, but I feel like this one is probably much better in every single aspect, and I’m only 140 pages through.
