Loved it !!
17 September 2019 | by joyfulpSee all my reviews

Honestly thought it was a book adaptation . It's was so good. Even though she was special when she was young because she was raised differently I thought she would be weak. Love the concept where the hunter becomes the hunted. They all thought they had her in the palm of their hands . That's didn't go well!!
